Cam Reddish should be a trade target for the Milwaukee Bucks

This next one could raise some eyebrows, but the Milwaukee Bucks should absolutely check in on Cam Reddish’s availability. Reddish was traded to the New York Knicks midseason last year, but it proved to be a puzzling move as they hardly played him. It seemed based on a coaching decision to keep Reddish primarily on the sidelines, and if that will carry over into next year, the Bucks should swoop in and try to acquire him, as there would certainly be minutes for him in Milwaukee.

Reddish would immediately fix Milwaukee’s problem on the wing with a 22-year-old that has an incredible amount of untapped potential waiting to be unearthed. The 6-foot-8 forward is a solid defender that has shown strides of improvement in that aspect of his game. Playing alongside an assortment of other top-tier defenders like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday could take his game up a notch. On the opposite end, Reddish’s career 32.5 3-point percentage is nothing to celebrate, but he is still young and could undoubtedly improve that area of his game. Among the most desirable aspects of a Reddish trade is that it would see the Bucks bring in a young piece to develop, something they need on the roster rather than just stockpiling seasoned veterans.

If the Knicks are potentially willing to move on from Reddish, the Bucks do have some assets that could be compelling, such as their own first rounder this year. Reddish is set to make an affordable $6 million next season, so he would be a reasonable target for the Bucks in that aspect. Though he is coming off shoulder surgery, the Bucks should make a strong run at Reddish this offseason to solve their issues on the wing and bring in a piece that is loaded with star potential.
