Cavs didn’t love the intel on Cam Reddish

Chris Fedor: I was told that though the Cavs had expressed interest in Cam Reddish in the past, and they checked in on his availability with the Atlanta Hawks… one thing that I’m told from a source is that the intel that they got back was not flattering when it came to Cam Reddish.

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
I asked Nate McMillan how challenging it was to manage the situation knowing for months that Cam Reddish didn’t want to be in Atlanta anymore.

I don’t pretend to any kind of an expert on Cam Reddish, but from the little I’ve seen, the Knicks made acquired a Top 3 team player. (A healthy) Solomon Hill is a reliable rotation addition as well. – 4:42 PM

So, just to be clear there will be no revenge game for Reddish in Atlanta tomorrow. He is in New York, he is flying back to Atlanta with the Knicks but he has an ankle injury and WON’T play. – 4:10 PM

The Knicks already made one trade, landing Cam Reddish from the Hawks.
Here’s a potential Knicks-Rockets deal that could give them an upgrade at center and add depth to the backcourt.
Plus 2 Ben Simmons deals and a Hornets-Pacers potential swap

More from Hawks GM Travis Schlenk about his through process behind trading Cam Reddish.
“… The one thing I’ll say about draft picks, everybody values draft picks. Every team might not value a player, but 29 other teams will value a real first-round draft pick.”

Travis Schlenk just said that Cam Reddish went to the Hawks this past offseason to express his desire to find a different situation.

ICYMI last night: @Fred Katz and I dove deep on the Cam Reddish trade.
Some takeaways: Reddish wanted out of Atlanta because he wanted a bigger role for himself, Hawks were waiting for a 1st rd pick, who they initially asked for and much more below ⬇️

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Knicks stockpiling assets for a bigger deal. For now, adding Cam Reddish without taking away a rotation player means too many wings unless Alec Burks stays at PG. Presumably, Kemba Walker is back for Atlanta Saturday. Your move, Thibodeau. – 9:10 AM

💰Atlanta sent New York $834,589. The cash sent is reflective of what is owed to Solomon Hill.

More on this storyline

Barbara Barker: “Sometimes a change of scenery is good for people. So we will see how it unfolds,” Thibs said of Reddish. “Everyone’s path is different. Some guys get off to fast starts. Some guys get off to slow starts…..He comes in and it’s a fresh start for him.” -via Twitter @meanbarb / January 14, 2022

Sarah K. Spencer: Schlenk on Reddish: “Cam had come to us during the offseason & expressed the desire to maybe get to a situation where he could have a little bigger role.” Said Reddish went about it in the right way. Schlenk told him if they found something that works, they’d take a look at it. -via Twitter @sarah_k_spence / January 14, 2022

Sarah K. Spencer: I asked Schlenk about the cost/benefit of trading away Reddish and his potential: “He’s super high-talent. We all see that… But we’re trying to blend the team together, as well. So we have to take all that stuff into consideration.” Says he wishes the best for Cam. More: pic.twitter.com/GBP5RCzLnj -via Twitter @sarah_k_spence / January 14, 2022
