While the NBA trade deadline has since passed and rosters are seemingly set for the remainder of the 2021 season, you better believe this upcoming offseason will be just as entertaining, if not more. Two teams who could be interested in making a trade together could be the Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.
The Hawks and Knicks are both in heated competitions for a spot in the quickly approaching NBA postseason, but neither squad is content with where they’re currently at either. Neither of these teams are well aware that they don’t have the man power to compete with the Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, or Philadelphia 76ers, but making a trade this offseason could put them each at one step closer.
A trade between these two teams could catch a lot of people off guard, but we’ve seen many great trades go down in the league’s history between a pair of solid squads on a relatively even platform. A deal between these two teams could help each side build for the future, while also investing in their current roster as well.
Hawks forward Cam Reddish was a late addition to the NBA trade deadline rumors this year, but Atlanta could deal him away this offseason instead. One team who has extra draft capital and room on the wing to take a real chance on Reddish is the Knicks.
Let’s take a look at what a NBA trade deadline scenario centered around Cam Reddish would look like with the Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.
