Courtesy of his rare combination of size and skill, as well as his love for the game, Westtown School graduate and Norristown native Cameron Reddish will hear his name called early in the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday, writes Mike Jensen for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Reddish had a sterling scholastic career, playing alongside Mohamed Bamba, the sixth overall pick of the Orlando Magic in last summer’s draft, but took more of a back seat once he arrived at Duke. There, the 6-foot-8 guard played off the ball more than he was used to, but nonetheless averaged 13.5 points per game.
Reddish is poised to have the attention of every team drafting in the Top 10.
According to one analyst, Reddish “has the skill set of being an all-star.”
“Cameron can make a shot with his left hand, going around his back, sitting from half-court,” said Aaron Burt, Reddish’s AAU coach. “Now, he has to focus and hone in. If he does that, this kid can be one of the best to ever play the game of basketball.”
