Cam Reddish
Guard
Duke

OVERVIEW


Arrived in Durham with a reputation mostly as a shooter and during his one season at Duke he demonstrated that he can find other ways to score.

He’ll settle for the perimeter shots, and he’s largely confident in his ability to connect. Yet he was good on only 33.3 percent of his 3-point attempts in college.

Despite playing on a roster with high-profile talent, Reddish stepped to the forefront numerous times. He bagged the winning shot at Florida State and his 3-pointer against Central Florida was perhaps the basket that sparked a late-game comeback against Central Florida in the NCAA Tournament.

Reddish moves up and down the court in a hurry. He has a nice stride and fluid motion. Because of his tendency to be on the perimeter, he often doesn’t play as big as his 6-foot-8 listing would suggest.

He averaged 13.5 points per game for Duke. He also was charged with nearly three turnovers per game.

ANALYSIS


Reddish’s toughness needs to be assessed. He missed a couple of games, including an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 game for an apparent minor injury that spawned all sorts of speculation about his absence.

Sometimes it was difficult to gage Reddish’s true talent level and his ability to adjust because he was basically the third option in the Duke offense behind Zion Williams and RJ Barrett. That trend could continue for Reddish, who’ll probably be the third member of that team selected in the draft.

Reddish, who’ll turn 20 years old in September, might flourish more if he’s the go-to player, something that mostly wasn’t necessary or part of the drill while with the Blue Devils.
