4. Cam Reddish (2019-22), started 62 total games
The No. 10 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the hope surrounding Cam Reddish was that he would be an even better NBA player than a college player. He had (and still has) all the tools to do so. However, through his first four seasons in the league, he’s left much to be desired as a prospect. During his first three seasons in Atlanta, it simply didn’t work out. As a player that could perhaps grow alongside Young, it never completely clicked.
Reddish started 62 games over three seasons with the Hawks (before he was traded to the New York Knicks) but his inefficiency and untapped potential too often overshadowed his on-the-court production. There were times when you couldn’t help but be taken aback by Reddish’s raw talent and natural offensive skill set. On the other hand, there were also too many times when he looked like a player that didn’t deserve to be on the court for long stretches of time.
As talented as Reddish is, his time in Atlanta will be remembered as a disappointment. Maybe it all works out for Reddish now that he’s with the Los Angeles Lakers. That said, it’s unfortunate Reddish never developed into the running mate next to Young.
