The main benefit of Cam Reddish playing with Trae Young, will be increasing his confidence. Young will help get him easy looks and shooters always get more confident when they see a few shots go in. Reddish having his confidence sky-high will unlock his game, allowing him to he the player that he is projected to be.

Cam Reddish has great ball handling ability that helps him thrive at creating off the dribble. Though he isn’t the best pick and roll decision maker, he is certainly capable of getting the ball to the right man when running set plays. Once Cam’s full game is unlocked, he will then help Trae Young “level up”, by unlocking his full game.

Trae Young is already a complete offensive player, when it comes to playing with the ball in his hands. He certainly will improve on his efficiency as he continues to develop. Yet Young already possesses all of the needed skills, when it comes to shooting off the dribble, penetrating, scoring inside and dishing the ball to his teammates with accuracy.

The only thing left that would take Trae’s offensive game to the next level, is learning to play off the ball. His shooting ability would be dangerous, both spotting up and coming off of screens.

The Golden State Warriors do a great job of mixing up their offense, by featuring Steph Curry off the ball on screen plays, like example given to us by The Celtics House YouTube channel:

The Atlanta Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk, helped build the Golden State Warriors championship squad. His Hawks will have the ability memetic the Warriors use of Steph Curry off the ball, once Cam Reddish gets comfortable running the offensive.

Even more deadly would the ability to use both dangerous shooters, Trae Young and Kevin Huerter, running off screens at the same time. This is something Golden State does regularly with Curry and Klay Thompson. Not only can these screens lead to open shots for Trae Young, they can also lead to open driving lanes, as defense scramble to prevent an open look.

This is a good example of how the Warriors execute such a play, in the following tweet from Chris Oliver of
