So Cam Reddish is gone for what seems like nothing. But, this trade is setting the Hawks up for a BIGGER move that no one, yet everyone sees coming.

Currently after the deal, we have picks 10 and 20 in the 2022 draft. Tradeable assets.

Kevin Knox, who I actually like (Big 3-point shooter with fast movement and lanky driving) is a tradable asset.

We just freed up a bunch of cap, probably to get a player with a bigger contract.

Safe to say, Travis Schlenk wouldn’t do this deal unless he was planning something. Because he’s smart. And Cam Reddish is worth more than this. I mean, at least get Toppin and maybe Grimes or McBride.
