The Chicago Bulls are reportedly interested in trading away rookie Cam Reddish. The question is whether or not they should dangle him as competition for the Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Knox, who has been rumored to be on the trade block.
The “chicago bulls trades 2020” is a rumor that the Chicago Bulls are urged to trade Cam Reddish. The team has been struggling for years, and trading their best player might be the only way to change that.

Although it is early in the season and the Chicago Bulls have yet to play with a full complement of healthy players, it seems like the club will need to make a move if it wants to make the most of the 2021-22 season.
The most obvious need seems to be at power forward, where head coach Billy Donovan has been using 6’5′′ Javonte Green. However, we’re starting to see that there are other possible issues on the roster, most notably a lack of depth.
Is it Time for the Bulls to Look for Wing Depth?
The Bulls’ weak rotation at the wing positions, according to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, is a concern that has to be addressed. Buckley believes the Bulls should “consider” trading for Atlanta Hawks swingman Cam Reddish.
Even before Patrick Williams suffered possibly season-ending torn ligaments in his left wrist, Chicago’s wing depth didn’t seem to be tremendous. Although Javonte Green is surpassing expectations, Troy Brown Jr. has fallen short of his, so it’s a tie. The Bulls are in desperate need of extra wings. If they believe, as some do, that Williams’ eventual NBA home will be the 4 position, they should concentrate on finding someone who can play on the wings now and in the future. Cam Reddish, for example. Executives informed HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto that the 22-year-old swingman was available “around the trade deadline and around the draft.” Reddish may have more promise than production, but that, along with his 2022 extension eligibility, might keep his trade cost low. If he develops his natural abilities to their full potential, he’ll be capable of multi-positional defense, smooth outside shooting, and shot creation for himself and his teammates.
The Duke third-year player, who is 22 years old, is enjoying a good season with the Hawks. Reddish is averaging 11.9 points per game, which would be a career best. He’s also hitting a little more than 38% of his threes, which would be a career high.
Atlanta is now 4-9, and although this is undoubtedly disappointing for Hawks supporters who had hoped for more from their club, the poor start may encourage management to consider trading a young player like Reddish.
It’s Possible That Reddish Will Be Too Expensive
Patrick Williams, Coby White, and the trade exception the Bulls received as part of Daniel Theis’ sign-and-trade agreement with the Houston Rockets are the team’s most valuable trade assets.
While it’s possible the Hawks might part with Reddish for a trade exception and a throw-in, the other Bulls assets seem to be too valuable to deal for Reddish. It makes sense to move the trade exception for Reddish, but the Hawks are expected to want more, so Chicago may also give a future second-round selection.
Before making such a move, the Hawks would most likely have to suffer for a bit longer while seeing themselves as a non-playoff club.
Reddish would be a good match for the Bulls’ bench. His shooting, length, handling, and defense would instantly put him ahead of Troy Brown Jr., Green, and maybe even Derrick Jones Jr. We’ll see whether this idea can grow into anything more than a trade proposition in a magazine.
