Reggie Christian Hearn

Reggie Christian Hearn (born August 14, 1991) is an American professional basketball player for the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association (NBA), on a two-way contract with the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA G League. He played college basketball at Northwestern University. Hearn was an undersized post player while at R. Nelson Snider High School, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and he was lightly-recruited by college programs. Hearn ultimately landed as a walk-on at Northwestern, for head coach Bill Carmody, on a recommendation from Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson.
He ultimately earned a scholarship, and became a standout player for the team, by his junior season. As a senior, in the 2012–13 season, Hearn averaged 13.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, earning Honorable Mention All-Big Ten Conference. Following his college basketball career, Hearn joined the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League (now called the NBA G League). He played for the Stampede for a full season, and part of another, before being traded to the Westchester Knicks, and ultimately landing with the Reno Bighorns.
With the Bighorns, he earned a reputation of one of the G League’s top three-point shooters. During the 2016–17 season, Hearn was selected to compete in the three-point contest at the 2017 NBA Development League All-Star Game. On October 10, 2017, Hearn was signed by the Sacramento Kings to a training camp deal. On January 15, 2018, Hearn signed a one year, two way contract with the Detroit Pistons. Hearn made his NBA debut on February 5, playing 2:33 in a 111–91 win against the Portland Trail Blazers and making a three point field goal. The points were the first NBA points by a former Northwestern Wildcat since Geno Carlisle in December 2004, the first by a Northwestern graduate since Evan Eschmeyer in the May 2003 and the first NBA three point shot by a Wildcat since Rex Walters in the January 2000 and the first by a Northwestern graduate since Billy McKinney in 1981. Hearn appeared in a total of three games for the Pistons, but did not score again during the season. In 2017, Hearn was selected to the U.S. national team competing at the 2017 FIBA AmeriCup, where he won a gold medal.
