According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks and Hawks have agreed to a trade involving former Duke star Cam Reddish.
Reddish will reunite with teammate RJ Barrett in New York as the Knicks are sending a 2022 first-round pick to the Hawks in return.
Here’s the details:
“ESPN Sources: The Atlanta Hawks are trading forward Cam Reddish to the New York Knicks for a deal that includes a protected 2022 first-round pick via Charlotte,” Wojnarowski reported on Twitter. “Knicks also acquire Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round pick via Brooklyn in trade.”

Cam Reddish now gets his wish to have an expanded role for an up-and-coming Knicks team.
“Reddish, 22, gets his wish for a deal to a team with the ability to give him an increased role and an extension this summer – and Hawks get a first-round pick that could be useful in more deal-making to improve the roster,” Wojnarowski added.
This seems like the first time in a while the Knicks walked away from a trade and it was viewed as a win.
Wow the Knicks just fleeced someone! The last time the Knicks fleeced someone, I think I was in college. https://t.co/NiA9LBLvZ8

The Knicks could use Cam Reddish. They’re just 21-21 this season, good for 11th in the Eastern Conference standings.
Reddish could prove to be the jolt the Knicks need to get back on track.
