The Pennsylvania native was selected at No. 10 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft, rounding out a top 10 that also included Duke teammates Zion Williamson -- selected at No. 1 overall by the New Orleans Pelicans -- and Barrett, who went to the Knicks at No. 3 overall.
Reddish is currently averaging 11.9 points in 34 games during his third NBA season, despite playing in just 23.4 minutes per game, the lowest average of his career.
Knox was selected by the Knicks at No. 9 overall in the 2018 NBA Draft, but has seen limited action, appearing in just 13 games and averaging 8.5 minutes per game during the 2021-22 season.
