Cameron Reddish 

Post#1 » by atlantabbq99 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 6:34 pm

I think the 2019 draft will be a very very weak draft class, but the one person i do like is Reddish. He is ranked #10 now, but i think he can climb up and be ranked #1 by the end of his freshmen year.

He is not super athletic, but he has good size and length for for an NBA SF/SG. He has good vision and PG skills for somebody his size, but what impresses me the most is that he has a high release on his shot like Durant. His over all shooting stroke looks pure.

More of a SG/PG I think.

Reddish issues are well documented. Great toolbox but poor motor, little assertiveness. Also, his jumper has greatly improved and the form looks good but thus far it's still streaky as hell. Reddish with Barrett's mindset and motor easily goes number one next year – but unfortunately, you can't just switch the mentality of players.

I agree, when i watch Reddish, his attitude kind of reminds me of Wendell Carter, their seems to be no alpha dog in him, but i hope i'm wrong about that. I hope he plays aggressive next year, but i think he will end up deferring to Zion and RJ

His floor is Ben McLemore, a guy with alot of talent but little drive, and i think his ceiling could be Shareef Abdur-Rahim when he was in Vancouver, a high impact guy who is a fringe all star.

How do you know it's going to be a very very weak class, have you watched a ton of highschool ball this year?

lol no, he is a SF/PF, not the requisite foot speed to play in the backcourt

Reddish is talented, but he is so passive, reminds me of Batum, on both ends, he is going to have a career and put up numbers, but I will bank on him not been a star, which is fine, but not top-end worthy

Some of these Reddish comments make me think of Andrew Wiggins.

But anyway I doubt Reddish will outshine RJ Barrett for the #1 Pick on this incredibly stacked Duke team.

Especially if he’s a “passive” player.

As a some have mentioned, I see a Ben Mclemore/Jeremy Lamb career for him.

If he cares a little, he could reach Rudy Gay's impact, which is not bad value for 4-7 range.

He's 6'7 with a 7'1 wingspan, I think that's something that separates him. That's legit SF size. Yes, the motor/mindset seems to be a bit of a concern which means he may not make the most of his ability, but the skill-set is such that I think people tend to underrate him, and especially if he fades in to the background a bit as a 3rd fiddle behind more assertive alpha players in RJ and Zion, then I think he's going to get underrated as the season goes on for sure. He's a definite top 10 pick based on what I've seen so far, imo.

I've said time and time again, Duke will go as he goes. He's definitely a passive guy and that's got to change or else they'll fall well short of expectations. I think he has some high end potential tho--I'm talking Penny Hardaway and TMac-esque (stylistically).

If he ends up reaching his potential while at Duke, I really think it'll be because RJ beats it into him during their practices.

I think Barrett will struggle shooting as a freshmen, like Harrison Barnes did in UNC. People think RJ is an elite shooter because he had one good game against Team USA, but really if u watch his other games, he is just an average shooter for a D1 recruit. His real shooting numbers in high school was 31% from three in high school competition.

Barrett is a streaky shooter right now, he definitely will have struggle of shooting some night. But I don't worry he will be laid back in the game. From U17 world cup and right now he is playing with Canadian national team, he has no problem to penetrate and get to the rim with adults 10 years older guarding him. Thus I don't have any doubt he will still get to the rim fairly easy in NCAA and stand in FT lines quite a lot of times.

He is also a poor free throw shooter, like Justice Winslow, if you ever watch film of RJ.

He is my biggest question mark for Duke next season. As a UNC fan and seeing Reddish play extensively, his approach reminds me of Jalek Felton. Incredibly incredibly talent, just doesn’t seem to put it all out there consistently. Talent wise, I don’t think anyone from the 2018 HS class comes close to him. However, Barrett and Little (who talent wise I believe are a tier below) bring it every possession every play, and have Kobe lite work ethics I currently see as better prospects.

I think that Reddish needs to get mean and find a chip on his shoulder. At Duke I see him currently translating as a Junior Reyshawn Terry. Averages 13-15 ppg, has some games where he can’t be stopped and others where you wonder if he is even in the game. I think that Zion and RJ will be more consistent and reliable in their respective roles, IMHO.

If he ever got a consistent motor...look out.

Does not feel that way. Barrett had 8.7 free throws per game in FIBA U19 tournament and made 75% of them. He had 80% FT rate in Canadian national team. Not big concern for him.

You need to watch more film.


He shot 62% from the free throw line in his senior year in high school

WEAKNESSES -Excellent upper body but thin lower body. Legs are a bit bowed out. -Didn't look as explosive as he has in the past. Was slightly hampered by a lower extremity injury - had come straight from Dick's Nationals where he reportedly hurt his knee. Moves in a bit of a herky jerky fashion. Has yet to reach his athletic potential? -Struggled a bit to get by long athletes thanks to his so-so burst (maybe due to injury) and very raw handle - loose, away from his body. Makes an effort to change speeds but doesn't do so with much force. Left hand dominant at this stage. -Not as explosive around the rim in traffic as he is in space. Relies more on his length and ability to finish from different angles than pure explosiveness. Has shown he has a higher degree of explosiveness in the past -Very streaky shooter. Low release point, off hand involvement, set shot even on the move, wrist action is a little loose. Career 57.5% from the free throw line (92 attempts). Struggles to create separation and get to his jumper off the bounce without time and space, because of the nature of his release. -

This was my evaluation of him as well. Has the tools to be the next dominant wing scoring prospect (In the lineage of KD and Tatum), but he'll drop 50 in two straight games and then get bored in the next two and sleep-walk through them.

Let's see if Coach K can unlock the dog in him or at the very least teach him how to find stimulation in dominating. I'm hoping Barett and Zion can rub off on him a bit too.

Hopefully we'll be saying something different about his motor a year from now.

Cam Reddish can be anything between a Marquis Daniels or a Rudy Gay.
