Yes, the phone number can be reused. Phone numbers are issued to networks who provide service to customers. Customers never really “own” the phone numbers they use, it is better to think of it as a lease arrangement. When the lease is up, (ie customer no longer pays for the service) the network is free to move the number to another subscriber. The only exception to this is if the customer ported the number to a new network prior to canceling service at the old provider.
The sim card is simply a piece of hardware connecting your phone to the network. It does not carry any allegiance to a particular number. Rather, the network dictates which phone numbers connect to which sim cards.
