Miami Heat Rumors: Target Cam Reddish among potential Knicks mayhem?

The Miami Heat have a knack for being able to get the most out of the least. From a team perspective and an individual perspective, they have constantly succeeded at that particular task time and time again.

In keeping that thought at the front of your mind, though tabling it for a second, you now look around the league at all that is potentially on the horizon. While the new NBA season is the thing that sets the stage for everything else, there are still pieces of offseason business, so to speak, to be dealt with.

Seemingly a storyline all offseason long thus far, Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz is being heavily pursued, where the leader in the clubhouse to acquire him seems to be the New York Knicks. But right now, it’s not so much about who the Knicks are looking to bring in, as much as who they might be looking to ship out.

Here is a blurb from a piece in the New York Post that details the subject at hand. Though the subject isn’t officially or notably linked to Miami, it’s relevant.

The Miami Heat probably won’t get Donovan Mitchell, but there is talent out there. Cam Reddish of the New York Knicks would be a great get for them.

As the Knicks enter their third month negotiating with the Jazz on a Donovan Mitchell package, they might want to consider making sure Cam Reddish is part of a September deal.

The Post has learned Reddish wants a change of scenery from New York after he was traded there in January and didn’t initially crack the rotation to build confidence. An NBA source said Reddish is looking for a larger role.

Interestingly enough, it has long been suspected that Reddish wasn’t long for New York. Well, especially, after it was reported that Coach Tom Thibodeau was not in favor of the deal to acquire Reddish in the first place.

In forgetting about the Knicks for a second though, as this is really about the Miami Heat, here is another part of the piece that really stands out.

Neither team has benefitted so far, though Knicks scouts love Reddish’s length at the 3 and ability to play a stretch 4.

Though Reddish is technically a wing, he’s 6’8 and around 220 pounds, the typical size of a stretch four in today’s NBA. The Miami Heat need rotational depth at the spot.

Why not shoot for a guy that’s still young, has the size, the skill, the athleticism, and with a little strength training—should be able to help provide depth in an area of need all the while? It just makes too much sense.

Though the Miami Heat would love to make a sexy move, every single team would, they need to be focused on putting together the best possible roster they can right now… for now. Looking into Reddish, as he’s unhappy and the Miami Heat have a need, would be a step in that direction.
