The New York Knicks have officially parted ways with Cam Reddish.
The 23-year-old point guard was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, along with a protected future first-round pick, in exchange for veteran Josh Hart, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarwoski.
Hart, 27, is a shooting guard/small forward and former college teammate of Knicks guard Jalen Brunson. Hart entered Wednesday averaging 9.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. Hart’s 3-point shooting has declined this season — shooting 30% beyond the arc.
Reddish, on the other hand, has not played since Dec. 3 as he has fallen out of favor with head coach Tom Thibodeau.
The 23-year-old, who was acquired in a trade last season for Kevin Knox, appeared in just 20 games and averaged 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and one assist.
Reddish, who was the 10th overall pick for the Atlanta Hawks in 2019, will be a restricted free agent this offseason and should benefit from a fresh start with a new team.
