Cam Reddish, the Hawks' GM, has confirmed that the GM has requested a trade to figure out a Bigger Role

In the exchange for a 2022 protected first-round pick and Kevin Knox on Thursday, the traded third-year wing was sold in New York. Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round pick were also sent to New York.

Travis Schlenk, the general manager for the Hawks, had said that his moves might be on the horizon on Friday. Reddish was approached the front office during the offseason in an effort to get to a position where he might play a more important role.

"Cam had come to us during the offseason, and he wanted to arrive to an end in which he might play a little bit more.," Schlenk said.

Reddish, according to Schlenk, went about it in the right direction.

The Reddish rookie has played a role in the season since his retirement. In year two, he opened the season on an encouraging note before being sidelined for a long period due to a Achilles injury.

In the Eastern Conference Finals, he averaged 12.8 points on 66.8 percent true shooting across four games. This season, he's avoided injury and scored more effectively, but remains prone to inconsistent shooting and defense.

Atlanta is able to accommodate Reddish's request for a better landing spot.
