Lakers Sign Cam Reddish To Two-Year Contract

JULY 6: The Lakers have officially signed Reddish, the team confirmed in a press release.

JUNE 30: The Lakers are signing free agent forward Cam Reddish to a two-year contract, per Brad Turner of The Los Angeles Times and Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter links).

Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul informs Dave McMenamin of ESPN that the second year of the agreement will be a player option. Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reveals (via Twitter) that the contract will be a minimum deal.

The athletic 6’8″ small forward is already pretty well-traveled as he embarks on just his fifth NBA season in 2023/24. The Hawks selected him with the tenth overall pick in the 2018 draft out of Duke. He has since suited up, briefly, for the Knicks and Trail Blazers.

Splitting his 2022/23 season between New York and Portland, he averaged 9.7 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 1.4 APG and 1.0 APG in 40 contests.

Los Angeles has enjoyed a very proactive first few hours of free agency. Beyond taking this flyer on Reddish, the Lakers have also already re-signed restricted free agent power forward Rui Hachimura and added point guard Gabe Vincent and combo forward Taurean Prince.

L.A. will now determine the fates of restricted free agent shooting guard Austin Reaves, plus unrestricted free agent guards D’Angelo Russell, Dennis Schroder, and Lonnie Walker IV, all of whom helped the club return to its first Western Conference Finals since 2020.
