International Career:

GB’s most-capped international entering 2012, Reinking is one of only two players, along with Drew Sullivan, to remain from the inception of the GB programme in 2006. An ever-present since GB began its rise from Division B towards qualifying for major tournaments, the guard scored 21 points against Serbia in the 2009 EuroBasket. Previously he won 4 caps for England during a stellar six year campaign in the BBL with the Sheffield Sharks.

Reinking started his professional career in the British Basketball League in 1996 and, at the age of 38, he appears likely to end it in his adopted home country after returning to Sheffield Sharks last summer. During his initial stint in the BBL, he won two league titles, two Cups and a play-off crown, all with Sheffield, as well as making four All Star appearances.

The shooting guard then spent five seasons in Belgium, playing both in domestic and European competition, and was a member of the Mons side which reached the 2008 FIBA EuroCup final, as well as winning the 2006 Belgian Cup. He returned to the BBL in 2010 with Mersey Tigers, helping the Liverpool club to a treble of league, Trophy and play-off titles.
