The Nuggets are among the teams that have registered some interest in Knicks forward Cam Reddish, according to Ian Begley of SNY.tv, who says the Pistons and Knicks have also spoken recently about Reddish.
In passing along Begley’s latest reporting, SNY’s story notes that Begley has previously identified the Knicks as a team with interest in Pistons forward Saddiq Bey and suggests that perhaps there could be a match between the two teams on a deal involving Bey and Reddish. Bey’s trade value is significantly higher at this point than Reddish’s, however, so New York would need to attach a sweetener or two to make Detroit seriously consider that framework.
Here are a few more trade rumors from around the NBA:
- The Bucks have expressed trade interest in Knicks point guard Derrick Rose, league sources tell Marc Stein (Twitter link). Milwaukee doesn’t have an obvious salary-matching piece for Rose, who has a $14.5MM salary and has been out of New York’s rotation for much of the season — it’s hard to imagine he’s near the top of the Bucks’ wish list. For what it’s worth, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said he’d like to keep Rose around, explaining that the former MVP “contributes in a lot of different ways to our club” despite not seeing much playing time this season (link via Peter Botte of The New York Post).
- John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 shoots down a rumor suggesting that the Mavericks and Suns could make a deal centered around Deandre Ayton, Christian Wood, and Tim Hardaway Jr., tweeting that there’s “nothing” to that speculation. One recent report indicated that Dallas has interest in Ayton, but that report suggested he’d be more of a long-term trade target rather than a player the Suns would have interest in moving this week.
- Suns veteran Dario Saric is among the power forwards on the Heat‘s radar, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald (Twitter link), though Jackson acknowledges that Miami doesn’t have a clear salary-matching piece to send out for Saric ($9.2MM). Jackson adds (via Twitter) that the Suns, under new ownership, are “very active” in the trade market, but still haven’t been intrigued by the assets Miami has put on the table for Jae Crowder.

All Derrick Rose cares about his money. How anyone have him a deal that has him making $14 million is ludicrous. Next team that gives him big money will be, too.
If PHX had actually hired Isiah Thomas, I would believed the Ayton trade.
The best evidence there’s not much trade activity going on around the league is the number of teams having discussions with the Knicks about Reddish. The ask and bid in any Reddish trade will be denominated in 2nd round pick(s).
I kinda like that mavs suns mock trade. Ayton isn’t worth a max and suns have to extend cam johnson after this season and need the cap. So getting an expiring wood would help
Obi and Cam for Bey and 2023 Pistons second rounder
Hahahahahahahhahahahahaa that’s pretty much obi for bey. You are delusional
Cam:s a great talent and very Athletic and young, Sankara is right about him proving his talent in the playoffs, as he, when called upon, had a 21-point Game. He just needs the right opportunity, and being taught and learn how to be more patient. He has a really high ceiling.
Where does Bey fit in on the Knicks? Do they really need another low percentage scorer? They’re 24th in the league in FG% and 3PT% (and within percentage points of dead last in both). Bey has consistently shot 40% overall and 35% from 3, both of which are well below league average. His defense doesn’t appear to be any good, either.
He’s young, a 3 and D potential type, with the sbility to score if needed. A guy like that, is an assett, especially in a rebuild. No wonder how the cavs thought about trading for him, this same season, to be their starting 3.
He’s not particularly good at shooting 3s or defense, though. But you’re right, he is young and showing potential. I don’t see him getting the minutes needed to continue developing on the Knicks. I guess I just don’t see the fit.
Bey’s shooting numbers have been off the last couple years largely because he’s had license to try adding things to his game—with some ups and downs—but he’s still effective on catch and shoot threes. On a more competitive team like the Knicks (and a coach like Thibs) he probably sticks to a more limited, more efficient role.
A trade that I want to see
Knicks: Westbrook, O.G. and Thomas bryant
Lakers: FVV, Trent Jr. and Reddish
Raptors: Simmons, Fournier, Rose, Robinson, 7 1st round picks (3 knicks, 2 Lakers, 2 Nets)
Knicks gets the player they want in OG and a 6th man candidate in russ and solid big man thomas bryant which makes them more improved
Lakers gets more 3 pt shooting with FVV, Trent Jr. and Reddish since there supporting cast outside of bron and ad sucks
Raptors are currently rebuilding with barnes adding simmons and robinson gives them 2 decent stars and 7 1st round pick sounds too much but whatever. Raptors are rebuilding
Nets get rid of simmons and siakam makes them a better team
Its a win-win for all sides
