Cam Reddish says feedback projects him going in 3-10 range in 2019 NBA Draft
Before the 2018-19 NCAA season even commenced, the Duke Blue Devils were already making headlines. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski had managed to secure the top three high school players in the class of 2018, and RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish were projected to be the top three picks in the 2019 NBA Draft.
While Williamson and Barrett wowed basketball audiences all season long, Reddish had a rather tumultuous season.
There were highs, such as hitting a game-winning 3 against the Florida State Seminoles in January and sparking an improbable Duke comeback against Louisville one month later. But there were also plenty of lows, as Reddish shot just 35.6 percent from the field and only 33 percent from beyond the arc in a frustratingly inefficient season.
Yet Reddish’s shooting woes have not had much of a dampening effect in terms of his draft stock, as Cody Westerlund of Chicago’s 670 The Score is reporting that Reddish has received feedback that he is likely to go between the No. 3 and No. 10 in the draft:
Upon further review, Cam Reddish said he has received feedback that he will go in 3-10 range. I apologize for my poor hearing. He has met with the #Bulls, who own the No. 7 pick.

In spite of his poor numbers, Reddish has received praise for his pure shooting form as well as his length and tremendous defensive abilities.
The Knicks, Lakers, and Bulls have already met with Reddish, who will also sit down with the Cavaliers this weekend. Knicks scouts in particular are reportedly enamored with Reddish, but they may be more likely to select Barrett at the No. 3 spot.
Cam Reddish has become another player who has fluctuated in a number of mock drafts — seemingly falling anywhere between No. 4 and No. 13– but it appears that he is most likely to fall somewhere in the top 10.
