What could a potential Cam Reddish Trade look like?


The Atlanta Hawks currently sit 11th in the Eastern Conference at 11-14, this is not the record they envisioned entering the regular season. After reaching the Eastern Conference Finals last season, the Hawks were believed to be a top seed again this year. That has just not been the case. Trade rumors revolving around third-year wing Cam Reddish who is averaging 11.2 points, 0.9 assists, 2.6 rebounds, but he is doing so on 40 percent shooting from the floor and 36.7 percent from deep; both are career highs. He’s also using his 6’8″ frame to be an effective defender on the perimeter. It was reported the Hawks would move Reddish for a First round pick H/T Shams Charania.

2023 1st round pick

Atlanta Hawks Receive:

Jerami Grant

Corey Joseph

Grant is currently averaging 20.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists. He is someone who could be moved at the trade deadline for the Pistons. “The rising belief that the Pistons are prepared to move Grant comes in spite of his status as a longtime favorite of Pistons GM Troy Weaver,” writes Marc Stein. Adding Reddish would give the Pistons a young wing and gives the Hawks an immediate 20 point scorer. With Hunter having injury problems in his young career Grant would be a great player who can fill in when he’s out. Grant can play small forward and power forward. This gives the hawks another versatile player next to Trae Young.

Celtics cut ties with Smart.

2023 2nd round pick

Atlanta Hawks Receive:

Marcus Smart

Marcus Smart is one the league’s best perimeter defenders. The hawks have one of the worst perimeter defenses in the NBA, Adding Smart to the team would be a huge help. Smart is not only just a defender he is another ball handler who can fill that role when Trae is off the court. Smart is averaging 10.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.6 assists. Bogdanović adds shooting for the Celtics and Reddish has the potential to be a great wing defender.

Thunder take a chance?

2022 1st round pick (Clippers)

The Oklahoma City Thunder have dozens of first round picks, would they be willing to risk one on Reddish? Reddish has shown flashes of potential and drawn comparisons to Paul George. He has yet to live up to those comparisons but maybe a change of scenery is what he needs. The Hawks can not pay everybody. They just re-signed Kevin Huerter to a 4 year deal worth $65 million. Trae Young and John Collins also got big contracts this past off-season. Trae Inked a five year, $207 million Contract Extension. John re-signed for five years $125 million. The Hawks have Deandre Hunter this year, Onyeka Okongwu next year, and Gallanari expiring. Trading Reddish for a pick gives them more flexibility with cap space.
