At this point early in the season, there is not a lot of NBA trade buzz — not even for Ben Simmons — as teams are settling into the season and figuring out exactly what they really have and what they need. Trade talk traditionally starts to ramp up closer to Thanksgiving and beyond.
That never stops the rumor mill.
In a list of potential trade targets at Hoopshype, Michael Scotto threw out an interesting name and had executives thinking he might be available — Atlanta wing Cam Reddish. The team tested the waters on trading him during the offseason.
“He fits the mold that teams have a need for right now,” another NBA executive told HoopsHype. “He’s a 6-foot-8 athletic and versatile player that can make shots. He can create with the ball. He’s got the skillset tools and size. Right now, he doesn’t have a good sample size of being consistent. It’s just been flashes. He’s definitely somebody I’d be going after.”
