As they look to improve upon their 21-21 record and continue building for the future, the New York Knicks acquired Cam Reddish and Solomon Hill from the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
New York is sending the Charlotte Hornets’ 2022 first-round pick with protections and Kevin Knox to Atlanta. Here’s how the Knicks’ depth chart might look following the move:
- PG: Kemba Walker, Alec Burks, Immanuel Quickley
- SG: RJ Barrett, Immanuel Quickley
- SF: Evan Fournier, Cam Reddish
- PF: Julius Randle, Obi Toppin, Solomon Hill
- C: Mitchell Robinson, Nerlens Noel, Taj Gibson
Exchanging Knox for Reddish saves them a little bit of money in the short term but carries long-term implications.
Knox counts for $5.8 million against the salary cap this season, but the odds of him getting an extension from New York beyond his rookie deal appeared to be slim.
Reddish, on the other hand, makes a little less than $4.7 million now and will earn $5.9 million in 2022-23. Come 2023, the Knicks may have a difficult decision with the 22-year-old eligible for restricted free agency.
