“Cam Reddish is the hardest person I’ve had to keep; we’re not going to talk about it though’: Anthony Edwards hilariously gave Knicks guard props for dropping 40+ on him in high school
Anthony Edwards once admitted that Knicks guard Cam Reddish gave his team over 40 points in high school.
Cam Reddish has been one of the biggest names in the trading bloc for quite some time now. The Atlanta Hawks have a relatively respectable amount of young talent on their roster with the likes of Trae Young, Onyeka Okongwu, DeAndre Hunter and John Collins, so having Reddish too didn’t seem like a necessity for Travis Schlenk and company.
So, the Hawks decided to disconnect the former Blue Devil and trade him to the New York Knicks, reuniting him with his Duke teammate, RJ Barrett. The main reason this trade was made was more due to wanting to avoid having one of the biggest tax bills in NBA history over the next two years.

The Timberwolves guard referenced a 40+ point game from when they were together in Washington DC. The only game he had during that span where he had over 40 points was his 53-point outburst at National Hoopfest and so that’s most definitely the game Ant is talking about.
It’s fair to say that with the way the New York Knicks have struggled on the offensive end of the floor, counting on Derrick Rose to be the number one option in the Playoffs, having Cam Reddish develop as an offensive threat won’t do any good. evil in the slightest.
