Robert Keith Reid (born August 30, 1955) is an American former professional basketball player.

An Atlanta-born 6'8" forward from St. Mary's University, Texas, Reid played thirteen seasons (1977–1982; 1983–1991) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Houston Rockets, Charlotte Hornets, Portland Trail Blazers, and Philadelphia 76ers. He had his best overall season in 1980-81, when he was the second leading scorer on the Rockets team that reached the NBA Finals before losing to the Boston Celtics. After the Rockets traded reigning MVP Moses Malone to the Philadelphia 76ers, however, Reid retired from basketball and moved to Miami, Florida. After a year away from basketball, he returned to Houston after they drafted Ralph Sampson with the first overall pick in the 1983 NBA Draft.[1] When he concluded his NBA career in 1991, Reid had tallied 10,448 career points, 4,168 career rebounds, and 2,500 career assists.

In recent years, Reid has hosted basketball clinics for young athletes in several countries, such as India.[2]
