The Knicks upgraded their roster on Thursday morning, making a trade with the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year.

New York acquired guard/forward Cam Reddish, forward Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round draft pick from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Kevin Knox and a 2022 first-round draft pick, according to ESPN.com.

Reddish, who is averaging 11.9 points per game this season, was a college teammate of Knicks second-leading-scorer RJ Barrett during their time at Duke. Reddish was picked No. 10 in the 2019 NBA Draft, the same year the Knicks took Barrett at No. 3.

Hill, a bench player, has been in the league since 2013.

The Knicks parted ways with Kevin Knox, who they drafted at No. 9 out of Kentucky in 2018. Knox started 57 games during the 2018-19 season, then only started four the following season and hasn't started since. He's averaging 3.6 points per game off the bench this season.

The protected 2022 first-round pick the Knicks are sending to Atlanta was acquired from the Charlotte Hornets in a previous trade. The Knicks will still have their own draft pick this summer.

The 2025 second-round pick the Hawks are sending back to the Knicks was acquired in a previous trade with the Brooklyn Nets.
