The new addition is expected to participate in practice Wednesday morning at Zions Bank Basketball Center and Utah's roster now stands at 17 players.
Reynolds (6-2, 190, Villanova) spent the 2010-11 season as a member of the Springfield Armor in the NBA Development League. Reynolds averaged 13.1 points on .445 shooting, 3.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 34.3 minutes for the Armor, appearing in 46 games (45 starts). Reynolds, who was not selected in the 2010 NBA Draft, played four seasons at Villanova, averaging 18.2 points on .457 shooting, 2.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 30.3 minutes. As a junior in 2008-09, Reynolds led Villanova to the Final Four, hitting a game-winning shot with 0.5 seconds remaining to defeat top-seeded Pittsburgh in the Elite Eight. Reynolds finished his career as the Wildcats' second all-time leading scorer (2,222 points) and was selected as a First Team AP All-American as a senior in 2009-10.
