The Milwaukee Bucks are actively looking to bolster their roster.
What Former Top-10 Pick Is On The Bucks’ Radar?
According to Marc Stein (formerly of ESPN), the Bucks are one of three teams, alongside the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, in acquiring former lottery pick Cam Reddish of the New York Knicks.
The 23-year-old forward was selected 10th overall by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2019 NBA Draft. Reddish hasn’t entirely lived up to a top-10 pick’s expectations but is still extremely young in his development and could flourish in a championship-level side such as the Bucks, something he’s yet to experience in his five-year NBA tenure with the Hawks and now the Knicks.
Cam Reddish Career Bio
After one season at The Haverford School in Haverford, Pennsylvania, Reddish transferred to Westtown School in West Chester, PA. He became teammates with Class of 2017 five-star recruit and current Orlando Magic big man Mo Bamba at Westtown. Reddish would be named 2018 Mr. Pennsylvania Basketball and announced his commitment to the Duke Blue Devils as a five-star recruit in the Class of 2018. Reddish ranked third in the 2018 high school class, only behind New Orleans Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson and his (Reddish’s) current Knicks teammate RJ Barrett, who both committed to Duke.
In his lone season at Duke, Reddish averaged 13.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game before announcing his declaration for the 2019 NBA Draft, something both Williamson and Barrett also did.
Reddish was selected 10th overall by the Atlanta Hawks and would see mild success in his two-plus-year tenure with the Hawks before he, alongside veteran forward Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round pick, was shipped to the New York Knicks in exchange for forward Kevin Knox and a protected future first-round pick.
