The New York Knicks acquired Cam Reddish from the Atlanta Hawks ahead of last year’s NBA trade deadline. The deal involved parting with a protected 2022 first-round pick in part of the package. Now, the team will try to get whatever is possible in return before he reaches restricted free agency.

Reddish is headed toward getting traded before the Feb. 9 deadline. The Knicks have opted to change their rotation around after making bold moves in early December. However, even as decisions like playing Evan Fournier over Miles McBride get made, Reddish is still buried deep on the bench.

According to HoopsHype, the Knicks still have ongoing trade discussions featuring Reddish. Among the notable details is that New York is interested in acquiring Grayson Allen from the Milwaukee Bucks in part of a trade.

With trade talks surrounding Reddish ongoing, the Knicks have expressed interest in Bucks starter Grayson Allen, a career 39.5 percent three-point shooter, league sources told HoopsHype.

Any team that’s in the market for more shooting should be interested in Allen. However, the lack of trade value for Reddish makes it challenging to envision a deal getting done with that framework. Milwaukee has aggressively shopping Allen, so he remains a name to watch.

The recent list of teams interested in acquiring Reddish has been growing. Initially, the Bucks, along with the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, were highlighted as potential landing spots. The Miami Heat were recently added into the mix, too.

Reddish is naturally going to command trade interest from teams needing to add help on the wing. He has greater potential than the typical spot-up player but hasn’t been in a situation where he’s been able to showcase it consistently. For a team needing a more dynamic option, perhaps he could carve out a niche attacking closeouts and grow his game from there.

The challenge the Knicks will face when trying to command a trade return for Reddish is their clear lack of desire to give him minutes ahead of his restricted free agency. Gaining the ability to match offers when the option of waiting to make an offer that the Knicks are unlikely to match is the potential balance suitors must face when evaluating the option.
