Reyes passed away in May 2019 due to cervical cancer. She was 38.

As an agent, Reyes helped bring Brownlee to the Philippines as well as Renaldo Balkman, and worked with former NBA players Stephon Marbury and Lamar Odom.

Brownlee helped Barangay Ginebra win the Governors' Cup for the third time in four years on Friday, when they defeated the Meralco Bolts 105-93 in Game 5 of the best-of-7 series.

The import had 24 points, 10 assists, and 7 rebounds in their title-clinching triumph.
