The LA Lakers have fascination with NY Knicks wing Cam Reddish, per Marc Berman of the NY Post.

That rumor is amid a written report from Berman indicating that the Knicks remain “hopeful” they are able to land Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell via trade despite being amid finalizing a four-year contract extension with wing RJ Barrett.

Jazz president Danny Ainge reportedly wants four unprotected first-round draft picks, per Berman, however the Knicks have only been ready to offer two so far.

The Lakers have a set of unprotected first-rounders in 2027 and 2029, and Ainge reportedly “has eyes” on those selections, per Berman.

Reddish, 22, went No. 10 overall in the 2019 NBA draft to the Atlanta Hawks after playing one season at Duke. The 6’8″ wing has averaged 10.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 24.9 minutes per game over his three-year career. The Hawks traded him to the Knicks on Jan. 13.

The Lakers’ fascination with Reddish has been reported before, with Michael A. Scotto of HoopsHype reporting that L.A. discussed acquiring him in a three-team 2022 trade-deadline deal that could also have included the Knicks and Toronto Raptors:

Sources: The Lakers, Knicks and Raptors have discussed a 3-team trade.

Lakers get Cam Reddish and Alec Burks.

Knicks get Goran Dragic and draft picks.

Raptors get Talen Horton-Tucker and Nerlens Noel.

Theres also the opportunity Kendrick Nunn is put into the trade as talks continue

That never found fruition, but Fred Katz of The Athletic reported within an Aug. 19 mailbag he doesn’t believe Reddish will undoubtedly be in the Knicks’ opening-night rotation if many people are healthy. Reddish could possibly be designed for the Purple and Gold once more, particularly if the Mitchell talks heat up.

For the present time, Reddish remains a Knick, Mitchell continues to be an associate of the Jazz, and the Lakers are securing with their 2027 and 2029 first-rounders. We’ll see if talks advance, though, as training camps approach in September and the standard season begins Oct. 18.
