About Cam Reddish

Cam Reddish is a tall, smooth swingman who flashed intriguing potential as a versatile shot maker in spurts playing alongside Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett at Duke.  A consensus top-3 prospect in the high school class of 2018 out of Westtown School, Reddish emerged as a top prospect early in his prep career playing a considerable amount of point-forward and averaging 10.7 points and 3.1 assists per game playing up at the 2017 FIBA U19 World Championship.  A member of Duke’s historic four-man 2018 recruiting class, the Norristown, Pennsylvania native settled into a role off the ball under Mike Krzyzewski turning in several explosive offensive performances averaging 13.5 points and 1.9 assists per game to earn All-ACC Honorable Mention recognition.

  • Possesses tremendous size for a wing measured at the NBA Combine standing 6’8 in shoes with an impressive 7’0.5 wingspan and a promising 208-pound frame that still has plenty of room to fill out.  Rangy athlete with the fluid footwork to get into his jump shot impressively on the move who could continue to improve as a slasher as he gets stronger.
     
  • Capable perimeter scorer who can run hot from the perimeter and score in bunches.  Played a complimentary role for the Blue Devils spacing the floor, working off screens away from the ball, and filling lanes in transition.  Had some positive moments creating his own shot - especially out of ball screen actions, but did not fill the point-forward role with the frequency he did at the prep level. Stepped up on several notable occasions to make clutch shots to cap big games, scratching the surface of the player he could grow into down the road.

Defensive Analysis

  • Combination of agility and length are a plus on the defensive end.  Did a nice job getting his hands in the passing lanes and defending multiple positions on the perimeter for stretches this season.  Still figuring out how to be physical make the most of his tools consistently, but fit in nicely on one of the nation’s top defensive teams this season despite his relative youth.
