Player Profile:

Is a professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association who currently plays for the Sta. Lucia Realtors. He was drafted 3rd overall by Sta. Lucia Realtors in 2007. He won the Rookie of the year honor later at the end of the season.

Ryan Reyes is a very talented aggressive point guard who plays unselfishly.

Known to his quick passing abilities, great size, driving skills, solid perimeter shooting, ball handling and rugged defense, Ryan Reyes has a bright future in the PBA.

He led Henkel-Sista to a third place finish in the recent Philippine Basketball League (PBL) Unity Cup.

Prior to his PBL stint, Reyes also saw action in the National Basketball Conference (NBC) and played for the Cebuana Lhuillier-sponsored national team in 2005.

In his rookie year, he led Sta. Lucia to its first ever championship appearance in an All-Filipino conference.

Ryan Reyes played alongside with NBA two-time Three-pointing NBA All-Star Champion Jason Kapono of the Toronto Raptors during high school days in Artesian High in California.

With his first-pass philosophy, Reyes has given shooters Joseph Yeo and veteran Paolo Mendoza enough time to hit their shots especially in crunch time, which becomes beneficial to the play of Sta. Lucia head coach Boyet Fernandez.

He plays good rotation to fellow playmakers Dennis Miranda and Christian Coronel.
