In talking with folks around the NBA.. the feeling I'm getting is that the Hawks are trying to move Cam Reddish and #20 to Indy for #13

Many believe, including me, Travis Schlenk wouldn’t trade Reddish for anything less than a high lottery pick or a proven superstar. Still, these reports are plentiful and are coming from somewhere, so we must take them seriously. Reddish showed the world what he is capable of in the Eastern Conference Finals, and he’s still maturing as a young man and player. The sky seems like the limit for the former Blue Devil, so the only reason I believe Atlanta would ship him off is for a prospect in this draft with more years of control. Schlenk must have is eye on somebody he feels he can’t pass up.
