New York Knicks & Forward Mutually Working Toward Trade


It's been much of the same since he arrived at Madison Square Garden midway through last season. Once again, 23-year-old Cam Reddish is out of the New York Knicks' rotation. And it's clear the time has come for him to move on. A new report indicates that the process is underway.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, the Knicks and Cam Reddish’s representatives are working towards a trade.

After starting eight games earlier this season, he was pulled from the rotation once again earlier this week by head coach Tom Thibodeau, and now the trade machine is in gear. 

Reddish was the 10th overall pick in 2019 by the Atlanta Hawks. And while averaged 11.1 points and about 26 minutes per game for Atlanta in his 2 ½ years there, that's sunk to just 7.4 points in less than 19 minutes per contest in 35 games total with the Knicks. 

Coach Tibs defended his decision to bench Reddish as simply tightening his rotation. "It’s not just on Cam, it’s on our team,” Thibodeau said. “What gives our team the best chance? And so I’d say those are coaching decisions; to decide to go from a 10-man rotation to nine because you feel like it [gives] the team the best chance to succeed."
