Knicks will have to wait ‘a while’ for injured Cam Reddish

The Knicks are eager to see what Cam Reddish can bring them with a change of scenery after Thursday’s trade with the Hawks.

But they will have to be patient before throwing it into the fold.

Reddish will be out ‘for a while’ with a sprained ankle he suffered in his last game with the Hawks on Sunday, although Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said he doesn’t know how much long it would take.

So the No. 10 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft won’t get the chance to face his former team immediately when the Knicks face the Hawks on Saturday in Atlanta, but the Knicks are intrigued by what he can do once. that he is in good health.

“It gives us the opportunity to watch Cam,” Thibodeau said. “We’ll see when he gets here, we’ll see how he fits in and we’ll go from there. … Size, athleticism, wing position, that kind of stuff. Sometimes a change of scenery is good for people. So we’ll see how it will go.

The Knicks gave up a protected first-round pick (via the Hornets) and Kevin Knox to land Reddish, Solomon Hill (out for the season) and a 2025 second-round pick.

RJ Barrett said Knicks management came to him before the trade to ask him a few questions about his former Duke teammate. He said he was looking forward to teaming up with Reddish again.

“It’s great to play with my brother Duke again,” Barrett said. β€œIt’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m happy, I can’t wait for it to arrive. … I mean, he’s 6-8, very skilled, [can] shooting the ball, finishing with both hands, playing excellent defence. So you get a good talented player.
