Atlanta Hawks Rumors
Cam Reddish was available on the trade market at the trade deadline and around the draft, multiple NBA executives told HoopsHype. Heading into the season, rival executives are monitoring his availability. “They always say he’s the most talented player on their roster, it’s just that he doesn’t always put it together,” one NBA executive told HoopsHype. “I’m not sure if he ever will. I like him. I think if he gets in the right situation, he could turn out to be a starting-level player because he can defend multiple positions and he can create any shot he wants. It’s just a matter of his mental approach and getting to the right situation where they know how to get the most out of him.”
Joe Vardon: Trae Young, sporting a Braves jersey in honor of Game 6, said his tech tonight was sparked by a ref ‘mean mugging me, lookin me in the eye.’ Trae said he said ‘why you makin it personal?’ And, boom. He also said he expects the fine to be rescinded.
Sarah K. Spencer: Nate McMillan said he thought the Hawks got distracted by officiating and lost some focus in the third quarter. Also said the Hawks didn’t execute well against the zone that Cleveland mixed in.
Kelsey Russo: #Cavs hold on and get their first win of the season over the Hawks, 101-95. Ricky Rubio led the Cavs in scoring with 23 points and 8 assists. Evan Mobley with 17 points and 111 rebounds. A much-needed win before they head on the upcoming 5-game west coast road trip.
