The Atlanta Hawks missed Cam Reddish for the majority of last season due to his injury issues and yet they were able to make it to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks, They ended up losing in six games but Reddish was able to get his first taste of playoff action.

Reddish showed that he was ready for playoff action given that he put in a historic performance in his first game. He was certainly not the cause of the Hawks losing. The biggest contributing factor to that was Trae Young getting injured on the referee’s foot.

This was the first time that Reddish was coached on the court by Nate McMillan and it seemed to be a match made in NBA heaven. McMillan commented that he believed that Reddish had the potential to be as good a Paul George which meant a lot to Reddish.

The Atlanta Hawks need Cam Reddish to grow this season.

Reddish is now entering his third season and his first two were very interrupted.  His rookie year was interrupted by COVID-19 and then last season he was out due to the Achilles soreness for most of the year. It has been a tough start to Reddish’s career.

However, the man has talent out of every pore and is going to have an extremely solid NBA career. He has a skill-set that will be highly sought after and the Hawks need to develop this on the court. His combination of height, length, and scoring ability will be huge moving forward. Let’s take a look at the three legends he needs to study.
