New York Knicks acquire Cam Reddish from Atlanta Hawks

RJ Barrett is about to get one of his Duke buddies to the New York Knicks.

The Atlanta Hawks are trading Cam Reddish to the New York Knicks.

The Knicks are sending the 2022 first round pick they acquired from the Charlotte Hornets and Kevin Knox in the deal to Atlanta. The Knicks also acquire Solomon Hill and a 2025 second round pick from the Brooklyn Nets.

Reddish was the 10th overall pick of the Hawks back in the 2019 NBA Draft, the same draft class as Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, all Duke teammates.

In 34 games, Reddish is averaging 11.9 points per game, but he’s mostly off the bench this season as opposed to the last two seasons where he was a starter for the Hawks.

The speculation now begins on if the Knicks will try to get Zion from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Zion has missed the entire 2021-2022 season due to his recovery from off-season foot surgery that has lingered into the season. Some also wonder if Zion has a plan to get traded out of New Orleans, especially since his recovery is happening in Portland and away from the team.
