Cam Reddish: 'I haven't requested any trades'

- by

Cam Reddish has landed outside the Knicks’ rotation, and he possibly could be headed out of New York. But after sitting out his second consecutive game Wednesday night, Reddish said multiple times that he hasn’t asked the Knicks to move him.“I haven’t requested any trades. I have not,” Reddish said after the Knicks’ 113-89 win over the Hawks, his former team. “Y’all seem to know more than me, for real. I don’t know what y’all talking about, but I haven’t requested no trade, nothing like that.” The Knicks have tried to attach Reddish to a trade seeking to dump the $18 million salary of Evan Fournier, who hasn’t played since Nov. 13, according to The Athletic. Another report published Wednesday stated the Knicks have been working with Reddish’s representatives to find a trade partner.

Cam Reddish on no longer being in the rotation: “I guess that’s just how it goes..I got no control over that. I just come to work everyday, just like y’all. Do my job & hey man, it’s just the result.” Also said he’s not sure why he was pulled and that he didn’t request a trade. – 11:05 PM

Nate McMillan says he is a little surprised it hasn’t worked out for Cam Reddish with the Knicks, thought he had a defensive-minded nature that would fit with Thibodeau. – 6:14 PM

With Knicks rotation moves probably worth noting that since this front office has been in place they have made deals far ahead of the deadline – D-Rose 6 weeks ahead of (Covid-delayed) deadline 2 years ago; Cam Reddish from Hawks nearly a month ahead last season. – 2:18 PM

More on this storyline

With Quentin Grimes taking over the starting shooting guard role in his absence, a healthy Reddish — and Derrick Rose — were left out of Tom Thibodeau’s nine-man rotation in both Sunday’s home win over the Cavaliers and in Wednesday’s game. “I’m not sure [why]. I’m not the one to ask. I’m not really sure to be honest with you,” said Reddish, who will be a restricted free agent after this season. “I was doing what I could to the best of my ability on both sides of the floor. I’m gonna say it again, all of the other stuff is out of my control. “My role, all that stuff, isn’t necessarily up to me. I’m just coming in and doing what I’m told to do. … I’ll roll with what Coach say, and that’s that.” -via New York Post / December 8, 2022
According to the Athletic’s Fred Katz, the Knicks are willing to attach Reddish to a trade to unload the contract of Evan Fournier, who is also out of the rotation. -via New York Daily News / December 7, 2022
