5. Cam Reddish
When Cam Reddish decided to join an incredibly stacked Duke basketball team, he knew that he would end up being the third scoring option. Being teammates with talents the likes of Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett will certainly limit the number of times you shoot the basketball.
In most cases, this would result in a huge drop in the player’s draft stock. Being overshadowed by two of the most talk-about prospects in recent history would certainly do you no good. But Reddish is still a top prospect and a certain top-10 selection.
His size enables him to be extremely versatile on the floor. He is a 6’8’’ wing with a 7’1’’ wingspan who is mostly used as a shooting guard, but the word “versatile” could really easily be used to describe him. Due to his length, he would be a perfect stretch-4 whenever coach David Fizdale wants to run a small-ball lineup.
The New York Knicks would be lucky to have a player like Reddish, someone that can score the basketball with ease — a role that seems to be missing from New York’s current roster.
