Khalid Reeves (born July 15, 1972) was an American professional basketball player, selected by the Miami Heat in the first round (12th pick) of the 1994 NBA Draft.

Reeves attended Christ The King Regional High School in Middle Village, Queens, New York, and played college basketball at the University of Arizona.

Reeves found his way to UA when he told his high school coach he wanted to play in a warm climate. His coach, Bob Oliva, reached out to then-UA coach Lute Olson and his staff. Reeves went on to be one of the most prolific scorers in UA history, still owning the season scoring record of 848 points achieved in 1993-94 a 2010 report remembered.[1] He led the Wildcats to the 1994 NCAA Final Four with backcourt teammate Damon Stoudamire. The Wildcats lost to eventual champion Arkansas.

Reeves played for numerous NBA teams from 1994 to 2000 averaging 7.8 points per game for his career. The last NBA team Reeves played for was the Chicago Bulls during the 1999-2000 season. After Reeves' NBA career ended, he continued to play professionally for smaller US-based leagues and in Greece, France, Lebanon, and Venezuela before retiring in 2005.

Reeves is currently an assistant coach at his high school alma mater, Christ the King Regional High School.[2]
