Cam Reddish confident he will be picked in the 3-8 range in NBA Draft
Former Duke standout Cam Reddish is confident he’ll be selected between three to eight in the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft.
Reddish has been pretty much a mystery for NBA teams, especially with the fact that they didn’t have a lot of time to assess his skills. Reddish underwent a minor procedure for his core muscle injury, limiting him and his representatives to just meeting and talking with teams.
Despite questions about his fit with teams, Reddish said during a JC Penny event in New York that he is optimistic he will be drafted in the top eight.
Spoke to Cam Reddish who said he’s two weeks removed from surgery on his groin and he’s confident in being drafted in the 3-to-8 range tomorrow. He met with the Knicks but couldn’t work out. DeAndre Hunter, a projected top-10 pick, said he neither met nor worked out w/ the Knicks

The New York Knicks (3), Los Angeles Lakers (4), Cleveland Cavaliers (5), Phoenix Suns (6), Chicago Bulls (7) and Atlanta Hawks (8) are picking three to eight. According to the latest mock drafts, Reddish is projected to land at No.8 with the Hawks.
The Top 3 are pretty much cemented already, with the New Orleans Pelicans expected to draft Zion Williamson and the Memphis Grizzlies eyeing Ja Morant. The Knicks are pretty much sold on Reddish’s Duke teammate Zion Williamson.
Reddish flashed a ton of potential in college and, he too, was a higher-rated prospect than Zion coming out of high school. Reddish had something of a nightmare season in his freshman year playing under Mike Krzyzewski with the Blue Devils.
Though Reddish only notched 13.5 points per game on a horrendous 35.6 field goal percentage and showcased a lack of ball-handling and decision-making skills on offense, his upside is still too tantalizing for lottery teams to ignore in the 2019 NBA Draft.
