Report: Knicks President Vetoes Reddish Deadline Deal

So Cam Reddish finally made a bit of an impact for the New York Knicks Thursday night. It almost didn't happen. Just a few weeks after trading for Reddish, and watching him rot on coach Tom Thibodeau's bench, the Knicks were being enticed to trade him away at Thursday's deadline, according to Mark Berman in the New York Post

But team president Leon Rose stepped in and put the kibosh on a potential deal. The Los Angeles Lakers were trying to send draft picks New York's way, but Rose is hoping that the realization that Reddish is here to stay will get Tibs to give him some good run. 

And it finally came, hours after the deadline passed. With RJ Barrett out with a sprained ankle, the 22-year-old Reddish got 19 minutes of floor time (significantly more than he had been getting), and scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting, along with 3 assists and 2 steals. A vast improvement from the minus-37 he registered in his previous two games of limited court time.

"I’m just trying to make the most of every opportunity that I get,’’ Reddish said. “I put in a lot of work. I really do know what I can do on the floor. There’s a lot I can do on the floor. My time will come. Whenever it comes, I’ll make sure I’m ready for it."
