So we end up with the same as if we picked Reddish @ 8, and traded #10 + #17 + #35 and took Solomon Hill contract for Hunter.

Not what I would've done, but as an amateur GM, I suppose I have to let it go until I make a profession out of it.

I like the idea of having Hunter to force Cam to compete for his minutes. I think that is a good way to draw out his potential and stoke that competitive fire...

Might be the most underrated part of drafting both.

Hawks traded Luka Doncic for Trae Young and Cam Reddish.

I like the future of both teams :-)

Hope he gets healthy all through the season. If not, he surely will get some games in CP, so I be there to check him out.

Steal of the draft. I got so pumped when New Orleans took Jaxson Hays at 8.

Agreed. Both teams are doing pretty well for themselves and you have assembled a very intriguing young core with Trae, Huerter, Reddish, Hunter and Collins. That looks like a very entertaining team.

Every time I think about us nabbing Cam at #10, I'm like:

Was excited to watch Cam wherever he ended up, and this couldn't be a better spot. Love what you guys are doing.

Cam Reddish's 2019 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Analysis of Hawks Pick

Image

Size: 6'8"

Weight: 207.8 pounds

Wingspan: 7'0 ½"

Reach: 8'9 ½"

Pro comparison: Nicolas Batum


Offensive strengths

The draw for Reddish starts with his shooting as a 6'8" wing. Playing mostly a spot-up role at Duke, he buried 2.5 threes per game, demonstrating an easy release from NBA range. In flashes, he gave scouts a taste of his specialty shot-making off pull-ups or fallaways. Fluid when maneuvering off the dribble, he was also highly effective on a small sample size of pick-and-roll ball-handling chances, having generated 1.11 points per possession (96th percentile).

Offensive weaknesses

Reddish had a lot of trouble converting under pressure or in tight windows. He shot just 20.6 percent on guarded catch-and-shoot opportunities and 47.3 percent at the rim, where he showed poor feel in terms of adjusting and finishing against rim protection. The scouting report is clear: Run Reddish off the three-point line and make him put the ball on the floor. And despite playing some point guard in high school, he finished with 96 turnovers to 70 assists at Duke.

Spoiler:
Defensive outlook

Reddish's defensive outlook is bright, thanks to a size, length and quickness that's built for guarding wings and forwards. But he also demonstrated impressive reaction time and anticipation—resulting in 1.6 steals per game—as well as the ability to close out and recover. He'll still need to be coached up, but his defensive versatility, playmaking and general coverage should make him a two-way player.

Rookie-year projection

After Reddish shot 35.6 percent at Duke, his NBA coaching staff won't count on him as a reliable rookie starter. We'll likely see a similar player from this past season: one capable of burying threes and making plays defensively, but not an efficient scorer or distributor.

Projected role: Three-and-D starter

Paul George comparisons out of high school now seem inaccurate. A more realistic, optimistic trajectory has Reddish becoming a top three-and-D forward with secondary creation ability. Ideally, he's a fourth scoring option who can play to his strengths as a shot-maker, though spending time as a third option could give him a chance to expand his shot creation.

The more I see and hear about Cam Redish the more excited I am about the Hawks drafting him!! Like someone (Can’t remember who/Really Bad Memory!) said there will be several teams VERY SORRY for passing him up in this Draft (The Hawks were Very, Very Lucky!!!)!

Cam needs to focus on becoming a lock down defender and high steals guy, if he does that, his offensive game will follow.
