Cam Reddish traded: How he’ll fit with Knicks, why the Hawks gave up on him right now and more


The Hawks and Knicks, budding rivals in the Eastern Conference, have agreed to the first big trade ahead of the Feb. 10 deadline.

Atlanta is sending first-round pick Cam Reddish to New York for a 2022 top-18 protected pick via Charlotte and first-round pick Kevin Knox. The Hawks also are including Solomon Hill, who is out for the season with a torn hamstring and who will go to the Knicks along with the Nets’ 2025 second-round pick.

The Athletic’s Hawks writer Chris Kirschner and Knicks writer Fred Katz discuss what this trade means for both franchises:

Was this a fair price for Reddish?

The Hawks have made Reddish widely available since before this past draft cycle. The price then was a first-round pick, and it never changed.

Atlanta was looking for something closer to the slot where it drafted him, No. 10 overall, but nothing materialized. The front office had conversations with the Pacers, Lakers, Cavaliers and Pistons over the past several months, sources say, but the Hawks were always waiting for that first-round pick for Reddish.

Recently, The Athletic learned that the Lakers had offered two second-rounders for Reddish.
