Knicks’ Cam Reddish Denies He’s Seeking Trade

The Knicks are all over the news when it comes to trade rumors, but forward Cam Reddish insisted he’s fine where he is.Cam Reddish

“I haven’t requested any trades. I have not,” Reddish said, via Peter Botte of the New York Post. “Y’all seem to know more than me, for real. I don’t know what y’all talking about, but I haven’t requested no trade. Nothing like that.”

Multiple reports have suggested Knicks president Leon Rose has been active on trade calls, with Reddish among the available. Guards Evan Fournier, Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley reportedly are, too. Fred Katz of The Athletic was the first to report the news.

Meanwhile, a report from Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News said that the Knicks were working with Reddish’s representatives on a trade. While Reddish has denied his own involvement, it very well could be that his reps are indeed working with the Knicks to find him a new place to play.

After showing some flashes of the promise that once made him a lottery pick, Reddish has fallen out of Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau‘s rotation.

Per Katz, the Knicks have indicated they are willing to attach Quickley or Fournier to a Reddish trade. In a potential deals that may involve just Quickley, New York is seeking a first-round pick as part of the return, Katz added.

Given that the Knicks have an abundance of guards, it may not hurt to move one. As Katz mentioned, a trade could help free up consistent playing time for those who remain.

Reddish, 23, is 6-foot-8 and has appeared in 20 games this season, starting eight, and averaging 8.4 points on 45 percent shooting. As Bondy noted, he has displayed “flashes of his blue-chip potential” when getting a chance.

But as has always been the case during his Knicks run, consistency in playing time and performance has been a bit of an issue.

Originally drafted by the Hawks with the No. 10 overall pick in 2019, Reddish was acquired by the Knicks in a trade on Jan. 13. He was averaging a career-high 11.9 points with the Hawks at the time of the trade (through 34 games).

The Knicks (12-13) sit in last place in the Atlantic Division entering Wednesday’s game vs. the Hawks, but are just a half game out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.
