Fantasy Impact:

A lottery pick out of Duke just a year ago, Reddish has shown a great deal of potential in his first year with the Hawks. He's become part of the team's young "Core Five" along with Trae Young, DeAndre Hunter, Kevin Huerter, and John Collins. Specifically as it relates to Reddish's bright future, Schlenk spoke in particular about his defense, stating "what he allows us to do defensively, just with his length and athleticism and anticipation is going to be really important to us in the future. He's got a chance to be one of the best defensive players in the league." Reddish started in 34 of the 58 games he played in 2019, averaging 10.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 26.7 minutes per game. He only shot 38.4% from the field, so he'll have to work on his efficiency as he progresses in his career, but to have the incredible support and praise from your GM can only help boost a players confidence moving forward. Look for Reddish to solidify his role in the Hawks' starting lineup moving forward and hopefully the production will follow suit.
