6:47pm: The trade is now official, the Hawks announced in a press release. Atlanta received Knox and Charlotte’ 2022 first-round pick (top-18 protected) in exchange for Reddish, Hill, Brooklyn’s 2025 second-round pick, and cash.
The Knicks confirmed in their own press release that they waived Arcidiacono.
10:33am: The Hawks will send Cam Reddish to the Knicks in a multi-player trade, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
New York will also receive veteran forward Solomon Hill and a second-round draft pick in 2025 that originally belonged to the Nets. Atlanta will get Kevin Knox in return, along with a protected first-round pick from the Hornets. The protections on Charlotte’s pick are top-18 this year, top-16 in 2023 and top-14 in 2024 and 2025, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN (Twitter link). It will convert to second-round picks in 2026 and 2027 if not conveyed by then.
Atlanta had been searching around the league for a team willing to part with a mid-first-round pick or a young player in exchange for Reddish, Wojnarowski adds (Twitter link). The Hawks explored several potential trade packages with the Knicks before settling on the final deal, and Woj reports that they also talked recently to the Pacers and Lakers about potential trades involving Reddish.
The 10th pick in the 2019 draft, Reddish has been an explosive bench scorer and a part-time starter during his two-and-a-half seasons in Atlanta. After having much of last season wiped out by injuries, he’s averaging a career-high 11.9 points per game this year while shooting 40.2% from the field and 37.9% from three-point range.
Reddish will be eligible for a rookie scale extension this summer, which is one of the reasons the Hawks, who already have several sizable contracts in place, were willing to move him. He will carry cap hits for the Knicks of $4.7MM this season and $5.95MM for 2022/23, Marks tweets.
Hill, 30, is out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn right hamstring last month. He has veto power over the trade, but plans to approve it, according to Marks. He’s making $2,389,641 on a veteran-minimum contract that will expire after this season.
Knox, 22, had a bright rookie season in 2018/19, but hasn’t been the same player since. He has appeared in just 13 games this season, averaging 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds in 8.5 minutes per night. He is headed for free agency this summer, and the Hawks will have the option to make him restricted, though that seems unlikely.
The Knicks will have to release Ryan Arcidiacono early from his 10-day contract to make room on the roster for an extra player, Marks notes (Twitter link). Arcidiacono’s deal had been set to expire on Saturday night.
Atlanta will have an open roster spot, along with a $1.7MM trade exception. The Hawks will also get a little bit of luxury tax relief, moving from $1.87MM to $2.36MM under the tax threshold.

Great Move hope he can pan out in NYC his defense will always have him on the court now just need that sweet looking shot to go in more
Nice pick up for the Knicks. The Knicks have a lot of firepower on offense. Reddish is an excellent young talent.
Great trade for the Knicks, this was a terrible trade for the Hawks…/:
I wouldn’t say terrible. But I think most people would believe they could’ve done better.
Hawks were a minus 5.5 per 100 possessions with Cam on the floor, and something like plus 8 with Cam off. I’m not sure if his defense is quite at the level it’s made out to be, but the tools are certainly there. Just a question of if the maturity level and mind can catch up.
Step 1 of getting Zion to the Knicks …
I was thinking the same. Randle and picks.
We don’t want fat Zion
See if he can be healthy first
Why would you want him right now?
Because he averaged the most paint ppg since Shaq in his second year in the league …
He clearly wants out of NO and would be motivated to be in shape in NY. Trade value will be at all time low so won’t cost the farm to get him. Could go on and on
I don’t see why these are reasons to want Zion . . . of all people! Why not Bradley Beal? Or Damian Lillard? Or Ben Simmons? These guys all have a better chance of being traded than Zion. And plus, Zion comes with the risk of conditioning, and he’s injury-prone – this doesn’t make sense. Remember when David Griffin was being hailed as an amazing GM after he traded away AD for MAX value? Somehow I don’t think he wants to trade HIS no.1 pick .; . .
“Trade value will be at all time low”, what world do you live in? It’s certainly not here. Zion is hurt not garbage and NO is smarter than that. Some of you GMs here really should stay in school.
I’m not saying he’s bad you simpleton. I think he’s great.
But he looks outta shape, is hurt (again) and rumors are he wants out. Hence his trade value is as low as it has been.
Guess I had to spell it out for you.
Hawks are about to pull off something big
Ya think so?
No they’re not
Lol, literally everyone that covers the Hawks locally say that another move is coming but I’ll take your word over there’s.
Hawks are looking to trade pieces and stay below the tax line. This is a lost season and unless that “something big” is punting on this season (by trading Capela or Collins) you’ve heard wrong. I actually admire the GM for being so candid on that front too.
How are they going to pull off something big? Collins contract is way too big. Bogdanovich contract is way too big. Who they going to trade and who are they going to get?
I will love to see a 3 way trade between ATL – PHI – SAC, featuring Collins – Simmons – Fox as the centerpieces.
Collins contract is big but he is a really good player, all-star potential player.
What does “way too big” even mean, lol.
They need to – they have one of the best rosters in the league and they’re 17-22. Somehow I doubt they will though. General managers always seem to be patient.
“Best rosters in the league”
Smh I’m extremely saddened by this news
I can only pray & hope that the 1st rd pick that we are getting in this deal turns out to be Marjon Beauchamp but it’s looking increasingly doubtful that he lasts beyond the lottery. Losing Cam hurts BAD tho. This must be how Raptors fans felt when McGrady left in free agency 2decades ago
So …. you are comparing Reddish to McGrady? Ok…
It must have been a type-o, because anyone comparing Reddish to McGrady should have there privileges suspended.
I predicted Marjon to NYK
“This must be how Raptors fans felt when McGrady left in free agency 2decades ago.”-
No this how you’ll feel when Trae demands a trade in year 3 of his rookie extension because the Hawks failed to capitalize on his talents.
Um, McGrady was actually good. Reddish is an over hyped bum. Big difference.
Told you he was getting moved. You been ragging here all year. For what, it’s done. You should appreciate people who know ball. And can analyze it from afar dude. Don’t worry we’ll look out for him. Love that he’s young and they didn’t go after aging star or player. All good in the Rebuild……..
Of course you are, you’ve been obsessed with these young guys since last year. There’s a reason vets win titles, exactly what myself and anybody with any sense has been saying. You have to identify which guys you build around, and consolidate the rest of the young talent for proven guys. Cam and Hunter have to get paid next year and Atlanta can’t pay everybody. They chose Trae, JC, Capela, and Huerter for some damn reason I’ll never understand. They’ve got 6-7 guys making 15 plus a year and they refuse to play defense. Everyone on the team should be put on notice, you overachieved last year. You’re not as good as you think you are. Work harder.
Go look up rebuild and how it’s really done. Then show us all how smart you are. By showing us how the Knicks have done it. And how many times.
You’re a 1way conversation lol. Another genius here.
lmao, you wanted the Knicks to pick up Westbrook and Dinwiddie this offseason and you’re here acting like you have a clue.
I know more than you. Cause I actually know ball and follow my team. I still would like Dinwiddie. What excatly don’t you understand about that. I’ve wanted Fournier and Dinwiddie for two years. Cause that’s how smart I am. You’re a clown who gets his feelings hurt. And wants to ball. Unfortunately you’re not in my league lol.
I would of taken Westbrook on the cheap. Cause NY will support him. Just like I said Wiggins would do here. Guys who score that geniuses like you think they are done. And you think that’s something to make fun off. Bron the greatest ever wanted Westbrook. So what does that say about a Wannabee like you lol.
NY brings out the best in real talent. If you want it, we will support you. Instead of Criticizing or having real conversation about what I REALLY say. When I say it. You think you can add lip and talk smack. What are you 13 yrs old. Nobody on this board knows the Knicks like I do. I’m as good as they come. I’ve been playing and following longer than you been alive.
Just like all the Knicks you tried to trash. They are ALL still in the league. Just like Knox will show up in Atlanta. You openly show your ignorance here. Cause I hurt your feelings lol. You are the mosquito I swat any time I want. Any time.
Doesn’t solve Knicks PG issues.
No it doesn’t. But Reddish is a much better chip in a possible trade for a PG than Knox
See now this is a real question.
We’re working on it. For the Genius rct …..
Dinwiddie would if solved it ……
Amazing trade! Love getting Reddish for that CHA pick. Hope he can be a nice 3-D for us, maybe as a starter
He’s more than a 3&D guy. He has nice handle & is extremely dangerous when driving the ball to the hole
He’s way more than 3 and D, he’s about to be the best offensive player on the Knicks, he can take guys off the dribble from the perimeter or hit threes albeit somewhat inconsistent, but he is gonna be nice for the Knicks, maybe Knox has a little more of a role in ATL as well…..hawks talked to the lakers about Cam and they couldn’t beat this trade package, so stop writing about the Lakers acquiring anyone because they have nothing
Best offensive player. Please go hug Sankara lol. Nice to get more offense though. It’s called depth. Knicks have best depth in NBA
Guess you could call it “depth’ when everyone on the team is below average to slightly above average at best.
Yeah you absolutely ought to know.
“Best depth” in the league is the new code for a first round playoff exit.
Cam is depth and a play for the future. Why is it folks here don’t understand rebuilding. It’s Thibs Second yr. We’re suppose to please you.
Not a good sign for Fournier. Message sent.
Knicks should have offered 2 1sts and swapped Gallo for Fournier.
Fournier and Mitch for Turner and Brunson?
Not a bad trade. Does it fit money wise?
Agreed. Excellent trade.
Seems like a light return for Reddish … essentially a late 1st round pick, as Knox will be a FA.
And Hill is out for season so no help as he will probably be waived
They should hold him at least until trade deadline though, just in case they have another trade where they need to add $alary
That Charlotte pick is on the edge. Hornets are a clear playoff team right now and getting hot. If the season ended today the pick would not move. I doubt it will. Atlanta all but giving Reddish away here. Amazing no one bid more than that, unless the insiders know something about Cam that we don’t.
The Charlotte pick is lottery protected so essentially what the Hawks did was swap a 2nd round pick + Reddish for a mid-late round 1st. So, in my eyes it is dealing away Reddish worth moving up from 35-40 in the 2nd round of the draft to get to somewhere around 15-23. I think that is a deal the Hawks will regret.
I think a mid first for Reddish is fair honestly. He’s yet to put it together. Plus, I’m sure teams were lowballing the Hawks because they KNOW he’s the odd man out of their talented forward and will have to be moved at some point
This trade is far more likely to be a forgotten tax line move than a regrettable one by the Hawks. Cam Reddish is not someone to be all that bummed on losing, if he was better, this deal would have had more bidders and a better swap for the Hawks.
The pick is a bet on the Hornets being a playoff team in the near future (the protections are all up to playoff seeding), not the opposite. How did you not get that? Cam Reddish is not that good currently and frankly trying to get another shot at a better different player down the line is smart (pick and Knox). The Hawks made out just fine.
Plus Knox is pretty terrible.
You’re being kind.
Wasn’t that good in college, but Knicks thought that they could fix him.
Had two other highly recruited players along side him. I’d say he was ok considering.
Smith doesn’t belong in NBA.
Nttilikina doesn’t belong in NBA
Knox doesn’t belong in NBA.
When have you ever been right lol. rct …. Got no game
WHEN ……. They all will send you their pay stubs ok
When you’re backed to the wall to make room you’re forced to make tough choices and take a loss sometimes
Playing alongside RJ might help both players grow some.
They are physically similar… Do or die now. Kind of cruel but a very macho manu-a-manu coming up!
Cripes big win for Knicks… getting a splendid athlete for knon-competitive Knox, amazing.
But now he goes to a team who already has a Reddish.
What does Ginóbili have to do with any of this?
I don’t understand the trade for Atlanta, i get that Reddish has been hurt, but Knox has no value and i don’t think the Pick is what they need right now.
The trade for Atlanta is simply clearing a player they won’t be able to sign. They had to move someone with so many contracts on the books.
This is a direct result of the Collins contract, for better or worse.
Still i think Reddish had a little more value than that, i thought that move him in another bigger deal that can help solve the defensive problems that ATL has would have been the right call. Maybe they tried and couldn’t…. or maybe they will not make major moves.
You will get no argument from me.
Of all the young players they had other than Trae, I wanted them to keep Reddish. Sadly, the extensions for Young, Hunter, Huerter, and Collins came due first .. and once they were done it was obvious they would have to move someone to keep Cam or move him.
I do think they will make another move, and probably a bigger one.
Yes i hope they are making another move because i don’t get this at all… I like Cam potential but injuries have been concern. If they made this only for financial reasons and they are not trying to get better on the market, they will probably miss the playoffs.
“Probably miss the playoffs”, do you watch ATL basketball or pay attention to the standings. They are 3.0 out from the ten seed and 6.0 back from the six seed. They aren’t doing much this year and if that’s how you interpret this deal, you have to have no idea what has happened this year.
Perfect change of scenery deal for both guys. Didn’t realize Knox still played in the nba
He didn’t either.
Don’t understand what ATL is doing here? That pick may not convey for years and could ultimately turn into a second rounder. They’re giving up Cam another player AND a second rounder to NY for a guy that can’t get off the bench for a not so good team?
A lot of restrictions on the pick. I think even the Lakers could’ve offered more, surprisingly. Reddish seems to have more value, and its not like the deadline is around the corner. I understand ATL needs to budget, but ai just don’t feel they didn’t play from strength, plus Reddish is an asset
CHA is decent and almost guaranteed a playoff spot the next few years. Pick basically has no restrictions as it will almost be guaranteed to convey as a 1st over the next season or 2.
Wow ..Knicks just made its best trade in years. Why Schlenk cannot eat crow and trade Bogdan. instead is laughable. If ATL misses the playoffs, he’s gone.
ATL sucks, plain and simple…
Cam should not have been traded….
For nothing….. really?!
Back to the doghouse for Schkenk. He comes & goes.
That’s it for reddish?
That is a good deal for the knicks.
Was that charlotte pick already given to the Knicks? Or is this a 3 team trade with charlotte included?
Knicks already had it
Surely this is the start of a bigger trade.
I can understand wanting to get back a first round pick for Reddish who is going to need an extension. Hard to predict what sort of contract he would demand but I’m guessing around 20mil per season and I can understand not wanting to commit to that. Getting back Knox ain’t bad either cause you’ve given up two SF’s and that’ll leave a hole in the depth chart that he can help cover. But I’d expect Johnson to get promoted and get more minutes first. Still if Knox shows promise in his time then they can probably resign him in the cheap and he’s still young too.
However the first which will likely be in the 20’s of the draft isn’t really that valuable. So surely this is the start of a bigger package. Where they trade something like Bogi, Hunter, Lou Wil and a this first round pick for Ben Simmons or something like that…
I will be shocked if this isn’t the start of a bigger trade.
I like the Simmons fit and there have been rumors surrounding ATL and Ben, but i don’t think Bogi-Hunter-Lou and that pick can give you Simmons.
If Bogi wasn’t having a down year and Hunter wasn’t always injured then I’d take it but with those things I would want more aswell
Reddish isn’t getting $20M per season. He’d even tell you that.
If Hueter gets 4 years 65 mil reddish gets more….
No. He doesn’t.
Seriously? that’s it? Wth Morey.
I’m not super high on Cam Reddish, but that’s a small price for the Knicks to pay for him. If Cam can continue to improve his shooting numbers, this is a win for the Knicks. Knox is trash, and the Hornets pick should end up in the mid to late teens, so they gave up very little.

Seems like a sell low for the hawks.
Shows me there wasn’t a big market for Reddish. I’m sure his contract situation is scaring teams away. I always liked him. And still got plenty of upside. He’s not starting on Knicks. But he can definitely work his way into rotation. Only makes us deeper with a big potential player.
Do t give up on Knox. He needed to get out of NY. Guy got talent it’s desire he lacks. Wish him the best. Hawks like Knicks are underperforming so far. I see more changes for both teams. Atlanta can get the best out of Knox. And add a rotation player in draft. It will be worth it. They are set at wing. This draft has plenty of bigs in 1st rd. There will definitely be a starting type Center there at that pick. We didn’t lose anything and we got deeper and are still young. Gotta like it.
In Thibs we Trust ……
So, this has eventually became a straight-up swap for Trae-Luca….
CR has the measurables, and, maybe as a result, still has his fans among some BB people. For me, it’s hard to get excited about a guy who’s perceived value has declined each year since leaving HS. Those trend lines rarely reverse. I do think he’ll buy in, as this is his last chance to show that his fans aren’t all wrong. He’s at least a 2 way player (if not always a good one).
This deal isn’t surprising from either end. ATL needed to move a contract (even though CR’s isn’t a big one now, their payroll issue is longer term – meaning they wouldn’t be in a position to extend him or match down the road). NYK are in a rebuild (just not the tanking kind), and this is the type of trade the FO’s statements contemplated. The CHA 1st was acquired with a view toward a trade. People expecting the FO to trade their own picks (even with protection) for high priced vets are likely to be disappointed.
The knicks are in a rebuild? You said they were going to be top 4 in the East this year.
I told you that you were tripping…
Knicks have been in a rebuild since the current FO took over, and the parameters of it have been well articulated by them. I understand that, to some, a rebuild means tanking, but that’s more a result of their ignorance of NBA history than anything else.
Your memory is likely betraying you. I doubt I ever said that anything that anyone could misinterpret as claim that the Knicks would be top 4 in the EC this year. I have been calling for some regression this season even before last season was over. I also couldn’t care less what place they finish in, only the condition of the team they finish with.
Knicks are playing bad for most part. Yet have same record as last year at this point.
Half Way True ……
At 21-21 they are 3 gms out of 5th seed. They finished 4th last yr. Why you acting like this is done. Try enjoying the whole season. There’s a reason why it’s 82 gms. And again Thibs is here for 113 gms. This is his 2nd yr half way in. Yes We Are Still Rebuilding . That’s what this trade is all about. Part of the rebuild.
Knicks Have Not built thru the draft. Since Ewing. Look it up
Dreadful move by ATL… totally fleeced!!!
ATL are playing sooo bad right now, you add the loss of Cam… unless they get a superstar like Ben Simmons in, or another superstar there is no way they are even sniffing the playoffs this year!
Same players than last year team that got to the ECF… the blame must squarely go to McMillan, just fire the man & try to salvage the season by reaching out to the #10 seed!
Hawks should get grant
The glass is always half empty for the Don. Hawks got plenty talent dude. They will be fine and in the playoffs. It’s a young team and still trying to find their identity. I’ve been saying they need a solid vet starter. Here since last year. They should of used Cam to get one. Like CJ. Hawks are not done yet
Knicks are in Atlanta Saturday. I hope Cam plays. I know RJ had to be in on this deal.
Depth gents, it’s what I’ve been saying since the season started. Even with our top PGs out. We are still winning and competing . I see a winning streak coming. NYK ….
Cams #1 that was brought back must be needed to be included in something really big before the trade deadline.I love what the Knicks did,but let’s don’t be so fast to judge the ATL until after the break.Dare I say Beal or Simmons
I don’t necessarily think this is a pre-cursor. With the protections, this pick isn’t all that great
I Think this is a pure financial move for Atl
Good for NYK for keeping an ear open early. New front office seems to be well informed and moving about very methodical. Good traits to have in the toolbox
If ATL goes for Simmons that is great, but… if they go for Beal, that is the ship sinking faster than the Titanic, right?
Last thing they need is a guard that only shoots & don’t defend, specially when Trae is sooo much better than Beal anyway!
As a Knick fan I like this trade being we didn’t give up much. I worry though because Cam has been injury prone and we already have a few players with injury history. I also hope Cam doesn’t stunt Grimes growth like the Obi and Randle situation last year being Thibs goes with more experienced players. Leon made a nice move but the honeymoon is over and we are still waiting for a real block buster deal not just these stop the gap moves . He still has to bring in a bonafide Super Star and franchise changing talent
Knicks got better, simple as that. Can is RJs guy I’m sure he was in on this. Kids got talent and Thibs might just get the most of it. It’s worth a look. Like most said. Didn’t cost us much. He’s 22 at a position of need. He will get PT where Knox didn’t. So we are better.
Imo we are not done yet. There’s another one coming.
