Have you ever met a hoarder? You know, someone who holds onto material possessions long after they need them. People with a psychological dependency on things. Their house gets so full of them that they’re no longer functional. Some NBA general managers hoard players.
Everyone knows the team ought to move a guy, but for whatever reason, they remain on the roster much longer than they ought to. For example, look at Duncan Robinson of the Miami Heat.
Robinson has been in trade rumors for so long that a deal feels inevitable by now. However, his contract has become so poorly valued that it may not be all that possible to get it done.
The New York Knicks have a few players that fit the same mold. Cam Reddish, who hasn’t played in a game since Dec. 3, is undoubtedly reaching that status.
Reddish is going to be a free agent this summer, and it doesn’t make sense to hold onto him beyond the Feb. 9 deadline.
Could the Heat send Robinson to the New York Knicks in exchange for Cam Reddish?
