Tremendous natural talent and ability. He has so much ability it's insane. He is our best two way prospect. I really think he might have a chance at being similar to another Tracy McGrady. He has it all. He even has T-Mac's unselfishness. But sometimes, he doesn't make an impact. I would like to see him better off the ball. I actually find Barrett to be better at this than anyone else on the team. Reddish catch and shoot translates right now.

I dont see that TMac dog in him but he does look TMac smooth at times. I'm hoping it's a spacing issue but I'd love to see him attack more. That transition bucket in the second half was beautiful with how controlled he was. He was simply eating up whatever space the defense gave him with the knowledge that he could go wherever he needed to at any time. You see that and the defense and that shooting stroke along with legit point forward potential, no franchise will be upset with Cam as a "consolation" prize.

I'm going to be very curious on how well he is going to be able to finish in traffic for the rest of the year and on the next level. I can see him struggling with that. If he can show the ability to finish, then I think he can be a scary good player. But I need to see it first.

That jumper though, damn it looks good.

His finishing to me right now looks like a kid scared of contact and or a shot block. With how well he shoots combined with that mindset you get why the jumper is so relyed on. He definitely needs to attack with aggression and trust his length. If nothing else he can draw fouls.

If he is going to bomb 3s at that rate without hesitation his values increases incredibly, even if he is never your go-to guy, cause of some athletic limitations

I like him alot. Have him #2 behind Zion. Think his skill and shot give him a higher celiing than RJ and Little.

His ability to finish at the rim and in traffic is going to really determine his ceiling. Right now that is a major question mark for me with him. Right now he is shooting 40% at the rim and that is with 2 games coming against Army and EMU. Not really stout front lines.

Yeah, and he is looked suspect with his first step and ability to drive and get to spots on the court.

He is definitely #2/#3 with Nassir for me, but I think I'd like him to show me he can be the main man on a team.

If not, you are drafting a #2 guy a la Middleton. Not a bad player, and probably what Nassir will end up being too.

But some teams that lack leadership should maybe try the Barret route to see if he goes full Westbrook.

Yeah, Cam is very mediocre inside the paint. His first step quickness is not great which make his attacking close out is not very lethal. Also his finish near the rim lacks core strength or burst which makes him hard to time to finish 2+1 and sometimes get striped out near the rim.

I always felt pretty confident about his J. I think the bigger question is his willingness/effectiveness to drive/finish, and whether he lives up to his potential defensively.

Going to continue to be divisive right up to the draft imo.

He's gonna need to shoot more shooting off movement (very good with his feet set) and his mechanics are okay but he could improve the release

So last night during that SDSU game I saw Cam get challenged and then respond to said challenge and it was refreshing. last night i saw Cam on a few plays completely understand there wasn't a more talented player on the floor in either jersey than he is. I saw the handle, separation, confidence, and a little dog that makes Cam the most day one translatable of the big 3 at Duke. There needs to be more of it for sure but to see it pop the way it did last night was great to see. What made it even more special (as seems to be the case with that whole team) is he did his work in the flow. very little forced, smart passes, good spacing, and didn't just sulk when the touches didn't come. I know Jalen McDaniels still scored the bucket (nice looking player btw) but Cam's hustle was impressive. I didn't know his end to end was that good.

Whats preventing Reddish from being the perfect modern wing player? He can shoot, pass and defend at a decent to high level.

doesn't get to the rim (in part due to athletic limitations), doesn't shoot on the move

if you mean as a complimentary wing, not much really, would have to get his physicality up, but that's about it, if you mean it as a star, well that

His biggest problem early is that he's really enamored with his jumper. Yes, it's a thing of beauty but he can get too caught up in just being that triggerman. He can get to the basket and he's shown that, he just doesn't seem too comfortable or confident using that as much as he uses his set shot....I will say, I love the activity he's shown and how he seems to be more engaged on defense (especially compared to Zion and RJ so far)

his shooting is fine, I don't think he is that good a shooter, if he was, I'd like him much more, he is bombing and getting them off cause he is bigger than anybody, but he is gotta be quicker and more versatile, haven't seen him shooting on the move much

Could Can pull 12-13 3s per game in this NBA? I think he’s a 40% shooter in the future. If he can play d too then he’s a massive offensive weapon.
