Would Knicks really trade Cam Reddish after trading a 1st-round pick for him last season?

Knicks, Cam Reddish, Cam Reddish trade rumors

The New York Knicks are extremely busy as free agency approaches. The Knicks have executed a ton of maneuvering to be in position to throw a huge offer at Jalen Brunson, and right now it seems like their efforts will be successful on that front. The club is also supposedly interested in a big trade for San Antonio Spurs All-Star Dejounte Murray, though that seems a bit more unlikely at the moment.

Still, it looks like New York isn’t done making moves. Both Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer and The Athletic’s Fred Katz reported Wednesday that the Knicks are open to trading Cam Reddish, who was acquired in a deal with the Atlanta Hawks last season. New York used a first-round pick to complete that deal, though the franchise has collected several more firsts in its recent dealings.

Reddish came into the NBA with a fair amount of hype after being a teammate of Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett at Duke. However, despite some flashes, Reddish didn’t display all that much consistency with the Hawks and wound up getting traded as they dealt with a growing roster crunch and a roster on the verge of getting expensive.

Unfortunately for Reddish, Tom Thibodeau didn’t give him much of a chance after the trade. With the Knicks making all these moves while also having a number of young guys on the roster fighting for spots, plus Evan Fournier still around, Reddish could be the odd man out again. For what it’s worth, New York is also exploring the Fournier trade market.

It would be a shame if Reddish never got a chance to prove himself in New York, but given the circumstances, flipping him elsewhere for another asset could make sense.
