Reed, 26, is 6-foot-5 and has appeared in nine games for the Nuggets this season, averaging 5.0 points and 3.4 rebounds.
Normally, teams can only sign players to two 10-day deals before having to decide whether to sign them for the rest of the season, or allow them to become a free agent. But it appears that rule has changed, given the high amount of players entering health and safety protocols.
As an interesting aside, the Nuggets no longer have any players in the protocol. They do, however, have several out with long-term injuries. That lists consists of Michael Porter Jr., Jamal Murray, PJ Dozier and Markus Howard.
“By signing the deal Thursday, another game day, the Nuggets are maximizing his time with the team as opposed to signing him on an off day,” Singer wrote.
Reed appeared in 21 games with the Suns in 2017-18 and 10 with the Pacers the following year.
