Cam Reddish could have been a Laker if Los Angeles gave up more in proposed trade
According to The Athletic, it was an “Open secret” that Reddish wanted out of Atlanta because he thought his career trajectory was limited there.
This puts the Reddish trade into more perspective, as many Hawks fans were confused in the aftermath of the announcement that New York swindled Atlanta for Reddish.
However, the Lakers may have lost out in missing out on the Reddish deal. Since Rich Paul is Reddish’s agent, it isn’t hard to imagine that he would have tried to work out a Lakers deal in the offseason.
