Reynolds the "Best Import"?

New, comment

Scottie Reynolds has been a revelation for Talk ‘N’ Text of the Phiippine Basketball Association in his short stint so far. The TNT Texters are competing in the PBA Governors Cup competition, and Reynolds has been a key to their success. In four games, he is averaging 24.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.7 steals while leading the league in 3-point percentage at 48.7% (and an impressive 60% over his last two outings).

He hasn't been a prototypical point guard, however, averaging slightly more turnovers (4.8) than assists so far -- one of NBA scouts' biggest concern about his game.

There is no doubt that Scottie Reynolds can fill up a box score in a hurry. He finished his career at Villanova as the second-leading scorer behind only Kerry Kittles. If he hopes to make his way onto an NBA roster, however, it seems that priority #1 will be to become better at protecting and distributing the ball.

Reynolds isn't the first Villanovan to play in the PBA, both Stewart Granger and Dwayne McClain did a tour as import players in that league.
