With this signing we strengthen our position under the boards, add variability in team actions. The already existing "big" Alan Williams and Valery Kalinov will be joined by a big, but very mobile center. Reggie stands out for his hard work, he reads the game well, he is effective in pick n rolls and loves team basketball. Of the strong qualities, one can definitely single out his defense, he will certainly help us add pressure in the paint.

In the 2019/20 season American center played in the second division of the Italian Championship for Urania Milan. Reggie played 26 matches, in which he scored 11.3 points + 6.5 rebounds + 2.6 blocks per game on average. Voted the best defensive player of the season.

My time in Kalev I’ve played against Kuban twice. I remember this team being very-very strong together, very strong opponent. And my goal as long I plan to play with the team not against is that I bring some intensity on the offensive and defensive end. You know that I’m one of the best in the league in blockshots, so I will try to protect the rim the best that I can. My very big goal is to bring Lokomotiv to very high level in play-offs both in Eurocup and VTB league. As I know we can do. Personal goal is to become a top shotblocker in the league. I’m very exited to be playing with such a big talent players and for the coach with such a nice resume. Russia always been a very strong country in basketball. It will be a great growing experience for me to say that I play in one of the best basketball countries in the world. Hope to have good time playing with very experienced Russian and foreign teammates. I believe we can have an amazing season. I look forward to be with you guys very soon.
