Justin Michael Reed (born January 16 1982, in Jackson, Mississippi) is an American professional basketball player.

College career

Reed led the University of Mississippi's Ole Miss Rebels as part of the "Provine Posse," the three former Provine High School teammates who played together for the Rebels (the other two being Aaron Harper and David Sanders). Under the tutelage of 2001 Naismith Coach of the Year Rod Barnes, Reed became an all-around player and a dominant force in the Southeastern Conference. An All-SEC selection in each of his four years at The University of Mississippi, Reed led the team both on the court and in the locker room. As a freshman, Reed guided the Rebels through two NCAA tournament wins en route to a first ever "Sweet Sixteen" appearance for the Ole Miss program in 2001.

NBA career

Following his successful career as a forward at the University of Mississippi, Reed was selected in the second round (40th overall) by the Boston Celtics in the 2004 NBA Draft. He was traded to Minnesota on 26 January, 2006 in a multi-player deal. Reed enjoyed a successful 40 games with the Timberwolves following the deal and at season's end became a restricted free agent. Minnesota rewarded him with a three-year contract worth $4,310,500. [ [http://hoopshype.com/salaries/houston.htm HoopsHype - NBA Salaries - Houston Rockets ] ]
