Not so long ago, New York Knicks’ Cam Reddish was considered one of the best prospects on Earth.
Now, he looks more like an afterthought, being in and out of the team’s rotation and unlikely to have a prominent role going forward, barring an injury.
But even if Reddish’s career hasn’t gotten off to the start most analysts predicted, he’s shown glimpses of greatness in the past.
Moreover, he just turned 23 years old and is on quite a reasonable contract, so multiple teams would be wise to take a risk on him.
That’s why it’s not surprising to see that the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Miami Heat have shown an interest in trading for the Duke product, according to Ian Begley.

Per The Athletic’s Fred Katz, the Knicks are also exploring deals for Evan Fournier and Immanuel Quickley.
They know they’re not likely to get a first-round pick in return for Reddish, but they’ll continue to field calls for the out-of-favor guard:
“The market for Reddish is more sparse,” Katz wrote. “The Knicks traded a first-round pick and Kevin Knox for Reddish in January but, as with Fournier, they listened to offers for him leading up to February’s deadline and then again over the summer, league sources said. The chances of New York recouping what it gave up for him would be slim, especially considering he fell out of coach Tom Thibodeau’s rotation recently and can enter restricted free agency this upcoming summer.”
Reddish is currently averaging 8.4 points on 44.9 shooting for the 18-14 Knicks, but those numbers should only trend up when given more touches and minutes.
