Sheryl Reyes, the player agent who brought the likes of Justine Brownlee, Renaldo Balkman and Henry Walker to the PBA, passed away Thursday after a long battle with uterine cancer.
She was 38 years old.
Aside from Brownlee, Balkman and Walker, among the players in Reyes’ stable were Rob Dozier, Arinze Onuaku, Orlando Johnson, Hamady Ndiaye, PJ Ramos, Kevin Murphy, Al Thornton, and Vernon Macklin.
She was also instrumental in bringing former NBA stars such as Allen Iverson, Lamar Odom and Stephon Marbury to the Philippines.
As news broke out of her demise, an outpouring of condolences were posted on social media.
So glad I had an opportunity to tell you how much I appreciated ALL your help thru the years @femaleagentsr, especially during my 1st season as a head coach. From this early morning… https://t.co/1qeiTVvnI0

Crushed to hear of the passing of Sheryl Reyes. She was so full of life and so young, its tough to imagine she’s gone. She changed the fortunes of myself and the Ginebra team by bringing in our champion import. Forever grateful. She will be missed greatly.
