Hawks trade Cam Reddish to Knicks for 2022 first-round pick

Posted

ATLANTA (AP) — The struggling Atlanta Hawks have traded forward Cam Reddish to the New York Knicks for a protected 2022 first-round draft pick.

Atlanta confirmed the move on Thursday. The Hawks also are sending forward Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round pick to the Knicks, and small forward Kevin Knox is heading to Atlanta in the deal.

Reddish, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2019 draft, has averaged 11.9 points and 2.5 rebounds in 34 games, including seven starts, this season.

The trade comes as the Hawks (17-23) have lost three consecutive games and seven of their last nine. Atlanta has fallen to 12th in the Eastern Conference standings one year after advancing to the conference finals.

The Hawks agreed to trade Reddish one day after De'Andre Hunter scored 15 points in his return from wrist surgery. Hunter's strong showing after missing two months provided encouragement he is ready to resume his role as the starting small forward.

Knox has played in only 13 games this season, averaging 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds. His best season came as rookie in the 2018-19 season, when he averaged 12.8 points and 4.5 rebounds.
