Lakers Land Cam Reddish: 2-Year Deal Strengthens Roster

NBA TRADE: Lakers, Cam Reddish Agrees Two Year Deal

Cam Reddish is on the move again. He agreed to a two-year deal to join the Los Angeles Lakers, according to the Athletic The former no 10 overall pick out of Duke has always had the potential but hasn’t been able to put it all together, resulting in him already playing for three teams despite being just 23 years of age.

In 173 games across four NBA seasons, Reddish has averaged 10.3 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 32.2% from 3-point range. He got quality minutes after being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers at the deadline last year and averaged 11.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 20 games.

The athletic 6’8” small forward is already pretty well-traveled as he embarks on just his fifth NBA Season in 2023/2024.

With free agency getting underway on Friday afternoon, it wasn’t surprising to see the Lakers again being linked to Reddish.  Los Angeles has enjoyed a very proactive in the first day of free agency, beyond adding Reddish the Lakers have also re-signed restricted free-agent power forward Rui Hachimura, Gabe Vincent, and Taurean Prince. 

While the Lakers still have a lot more moves to make but landing Reddish for a minimum deal is a good business. Los Angeles Lakers appeared to use their non-taxpayer mid-level and bi-annual exceptions on Vincent and Prince respectively, so any other free agent signings from here on out would be minimum deals.
