While Reddish was overshadowed during his time at Duke, he still has huge upside at only 19 years old. His perimeter shooting is his strongest trait making him a perfect fit for a run and gun offense. His production does not match that of a lottery pick, but he is clearly willing to fill whatever role is needed.
