When the New York Knicks traded Kevin Knox and a protected first-round pick for Cam Reddish, fans were expecting the former Duke standout to have a consistent spot in Tom Thibodeau’s rotation.
However, Reddish’s minutes, similar to the playing time of other young players on the roster, became the subject of heated debate amongst Knicks fans. Heading into the 2022-2023 season, one thing is clear: Knicks fans will be expecting coach Thibodeau to give more minutes to players like Reddish, Immanuel Quickley, Obi Toppin, and others.
Of course, the elephant in the room is the Donovan Mitchell trade saga and how that will impact the team. That being said, if the opening roster looks like the current one, Reddish’s role should increase.
Knicks forward Cam Reddish is a young and talented player. If he can improve in his second season with the orange and blue, the sky is the limit.
The former tenth pick of the 2019 draft arrived in New York and played his first minutes as a Knick in January during a game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Over the remaining 36 games of the season, Reddish played in 14 games, averaging just over 14 minutes per game, before he sustained a season-ending injury to his shoulder.
Reddish’s first season with the orange and blue was a mixed bag, but his talent is clear, and if he can improve in these three areas – his spot in Tom Thibodeau’s rotation will be solidified.
