Reed "wants a chance to play"

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Reed's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Thursday that Reed is part of the package and that his client is looking forward to a fresh start with Houston...

"Justin just wants a chance to play," Bartelstein said. "He's really been tremendously productive when he's gotten minutes. Hopefully this will be a fresh start for him."

From Stephen Litel:
Now that this trade has become official, I’ve been reading all the other stories about Mike James and how he was a locker room cancer. Although I never truly believed that during the season, as all I have to go off is what I see with my own two eyes, I realize now that at no point during the season—not a single time—did I see James speaking with Garnett in the locker room.

Justin Reed, on the other hand, was friends with every single person on the team.
