Many fans, myself included, are excited to see what Cam Reddish can do coming off of an injury plagued season. After an incredibly strong finish to 2019-2020, Reddish stumbled out of the gate last season and then missed most of the rest of the season with an Achilles injury, but Reddish came alive in the 2020-2021 Playoffs:
Cam Reddish in the playoffs:
23 MPG, 12.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.5 SPG, 0.5 BPG on 53/64/80 splits and 67 TS%

In addition, Reddish played fantastic defense and showed off the confidence that he was lacking under Lloyd Pierce. I’m excited to see what he can do under Nate McMillan, but as expected, Coach McMillan is going to ease him back into things:
Not entirely surprising, but Nate McMillan mentioned today that Cam Reddish would be coming off the bench during the season.

Reddish absolutely has the potential to be one of the better sixth men in the league, and he’s playing to THE ultimate sixth man in Lou Williams. Trae Young had lots of praise for Reddish as well:
I’m excited to watch Reddish in 2021-2022, and hopefully he can provide some of that same spark he gave the Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
