Cam Reddish 2023-24 Profile
Cam Reddish — the 6 foot 7, 217 pound Shooting Guard/Small Forward for the Los Angeles Lakers — has been a can’t miss prospect ever since his childhood. And while Reddish has certainly found success in the NBA, the common sentiment is that he hasn’t quite reached the peaks that people believed he would. Yet, “Killer Cam” is only 24 years old, and most likely has many NBA seasons ahead of him. Perhaps all he needs to reach those peaks is a change of scenery — and considering that he recently signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, a team which his shooting-heavy skillset appears to be a perfect match for, perhaps those peaks are now within reach for Reddish.
In this article, we’ll discuss Cam Reddish’s general information, his pre-NBA background, what he has done during his NBA tenure, and what to expect from him in 2023-24.

Cam Reddish Background
Cam Reddish spent his freshman year of high school at the Haverford School in Haverford, Connecticut. After that first year, Reddish transferred to Westtown School in West Chester, Pennsylvania. As a junior, Reddish averaged 16.2 points per game and led his team to a league championship. During his senior season, Reddish averaged 22.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Once this high school career ended, Reddish was named 2018 Mr. Pennsylvania Basketball, was selected to play in the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Game, as well as the Jordan Brand Classic and the Nike Hoop Summit All-Star game.
Reddish was ranked as the #3 overall recruit in his 2018 class by ESPN. On September 1, 2017 (his 18th birthday), Reddish committed to play college basketball at Duke University, joining fellow top recruits Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett.
Despite playing alongside other stars, Reddish produced an excellent freshman season at Duke. He averaged 13.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists while shooting 33% from three-point range in the 36 total games he played in that 2018-19 season. While Duke was a favorite to win the NCAA Tournament that season, they ultimately progressed to the Elite Eight before being upset by Michigan State in a one point game.
Once that season ended, Reddish declared for the 2019 NBA Draft. And on June 20, 2019, Reddish was selected with the 10th overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks.
Reddish’s NBA Career So Far
In Reddish’s rookie season with the Atlanta Hawks, he averaged 10.5 points, 3,7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 26.7 minutes per game while shooting 33.2% on three-pointers in the 58 regular season games he played (34 of which he started in). While many believed Reddish’s rookie numbers were good enough to earn him NBA All-Rookie honors, he wasn’t selected to any of the All-Rookie teams.
Reddish’s play slightly improved during the 2021-21 season, as his scoring average increased to 11.2 points per game. He also increased his rebounds per game to 4, as well as steals per game to 1.3. His three-point shooting, however, took a large dip in efficiency, with Reddish shooting just 26.2% from three-point range throughout the regular season. On December 22, 2021, Reddish scored a career-high 36 points in a 104–98 loss to the Orlando Magic. Unfortunately, Reddish suffered an achilles injury midway through the year, and missed the final 42 games of the regular season.
That 2021-21 season was the only year that Cam Reddish has appeared in the NBA Playoffs. Yet, he only appeared in four games during the Hawks’ improbable run to the Eastern Conference Finals, as he was on the mend from the aforementioned injured achilles. In the four playoff games he played in, Reddish averaged 12.8 points per game and shot an impressive 64.3% from three-point range.
After playing about half of the 2021-22 season with the Atlanta Hawks, Reddish was traded to the New York Knicks on January 13, 2022. However, just two months into his Knicks tenure, Reddish sustained a right shoulder injury that would force him to miss the rest of that season. He finished the year averaging 10.1 points per game and shot 35.9% from three-point range.
After starting some games for the Knicks at the beginning of the 2022-23 season, Reddish’s inconsistent play lost him favor with the coaches, and he fell out of the Knicks’ rotation. On February 9, 2023, Reddish was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers. He made his Trail Blazers debut the next day, recording 11 points, two rebounds and two assists in a 138–129 loss. Reddish finished the season averaging the worst points per game total of his career, with 9.7.
On July 6, 2023, Reddish signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Cam Reddish 2023-24 Season Forecast
Cam Reddish finds himself in an interesting position heading into the 2023-24 season, He signed with the Lakers in what isn’t a big contract, in NBA terms, and will likely assume a “three and D” role coming off of the Lakers’ bench. This means that defense aptitude — which has always been a strength of Reddish’s — will be paramount to his playing time, as well as his spot-up three point shooting ability.
The most disappointing aspect of Reddish’s career so far has been his three-point shooting. Long range shots were his specialty heading into the NBA — yet, he has shot a sub-par 32.2% in his career. However, with LeBron James and Anthony Davis commanding the attention of opposing defenses, Reddish should receive lots of open three-point looks this year. If he can drain these with consistency, he should earn himself a valuable role on the Lakers squad.
And if the Lakers make the 2024 playoffs, perhaps Reddish can return to his brief but excellent playoff form in 2021, where he shot 64.3% from long range. If he can replicate that success, he will have found a welcome future in Los Angeles.
