The Knicks are unlikely to extend Cam Reddish‘s contract prior to the Oct. 17 deadline to do so, per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. The result will be Reddish becoming a free agent after the season.
Reddish, 23, is 6-foot-8 and averaged a career-low 6.1 points in 15 games with the Knicks after a trade with the Hawks. He missed some time with injury, but never really seemed to fit under coach Tom Thibodeau.
While trade rumors surrounded Reddish during the offseason, it appears as if the Knicks have not taken part in any such discussions recently.
Guard Seth Curry is gearing toward a return from an ankle injury and s hopeful to be ready for the season opener, per Nick Friedell of ESPN.
That said, Curry has yet to be cleared for 5-on-5 work at practice. He is coming off a nice season with the Nets after a trade from the 76ers, and should offer a nice boost in reserve behind Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons off the bench in the backcourt.
- The Nets have waived rookie guard/forward Noah Kirkwood, shortly after signing him, per Brian Lewis of the New York Post. Kirkland, 22, went undrafted out of Harvard and appeared in four games with the Nets summer squad.
The Sixers have waived guard/forward Patrick McCaw and signed guard Skyler Mays, per Keith Smith of Spotrac.
Mays, 25, is 6-4 and joined the 76ers for their morning shootaround on Wednesday. The former second-round pick appeared in 61 games with the Hawks in his first two NBA seasons.
McCaw, 26, is 6-7 and finished last season with the Delaware Blue Coats, the Sixers’ affiliate in the G League. He last appeared in the NBA in the 2020-21 season, when he played five games with the Raptors.
He has also spent time with the Cavaliers and Warriors since entering the NBA in 2016. It now appears likely that McCaw is headed back to the Blue Coats.
