Cam Reddish has talent that is undeniable. He is a former point guard that grew to be 6’8, so he will a great secondary ball handler for the Atlanta Hawks. He has a nice shooting stroke and is able to make shots off the dribble, as well as spotting up. Cam is great at finding the right place to spot up for three, as the trail man in the transition game as well. He has long arms and quick feel, which should allow him to develop into a very good defender over time.

Cam Reddish is extremely smooth and fluid with his on court movements. He uses very little wasted motion on the court. More noticeable than anything else, Reddish passes the eye test. If you were watching a group of players from this year’s draft class warm up, Reddish is the guy you would identify as possibly the best player of the group. Despite being the team’s third scorer, Reddish proved to be a clutch player. Even in games that he was quiet, he would often show up at the right time and hit a big three pointer, just when the team needed it the most. Cam has a calm demeanor that is a major factor in his ability to stay poised during hectic situations. Reddish also nailed this game winning shot against the Florida State Seminoles:
