A quick response from the Maccabi Tel Aviv following the wave of injuries. After signing Arkon Jackson (after the injuries of Nate Walters and John Dibertolomeo), the Yellows landed another acquisition.
Black's return date is unknown and will take at least several weeks. Maccabi was clear that Othello Hunter had to back up and go for Reynolds, who comes after two very good years in European basketball and no less important, in those two years his teams reached the top.
Reynolds (2.08) will be 27 tomorrow. This is an excellent athlete with proven rebound ability and good finishing ability under the basket, scoring 60-65 percent to 2 points. Reynolds graduated from Xavier College, starting out in European basketball from below - Italy's second league where he played for the Recanati team. His good ability upgraded him immediately and in the following season 2017/18 he already played in the first league in Italy and finished it in a major European top team.
Reynolds came to Reggio Emilia and played with her in the Eurocup where he averaged 10.5 points and 7.5 rebounds (twice met Hapoel Jerusalem in the early home). He led a very mediocre team to a great achievement in the EuroCap semi-final. He finished the season in Barcelona where he played 9 games.

Last season, he came to Reynolds at Zenit St. Petersburg who also played in the Eurocup. Whoever played there was a stick wave. Reynolds was the highest-scoring player on the team when in the Eurocup and also in the VTB league. In the VTB league he scored 16.6 points and took 7.9 rebounds, Bureaucap scored 13.8 points and took 8.1 rebounds. He came with the team to reach the semifinals of the VTB League where they lost 0: 3 to Moscow Moscow when the three games were tight.
He started this season in China, but quickly left after 5 games and moved to the Stockton Kings Group Development League. In all, he played 12 games this season. Maccabi gets two purchasing players who started the season in China and played on the same team - Zhejiang Guangxa.
Arkon Jackson is due to arrive earlier this week and will make his debut in front of Jelgiris in Kaunas on Thursday. The team hopes that Reynolds will also play his first game in Lithuania.
