The Pacers land Cam Reddish from the Knicks in this trade proposal

In this trade proposal, the Indiana Pacers send center Goga Bitadze and a 2023 second-round pick from Houston, Dallas, or Miami (whichever is worse) to the New York Knicks for forward Cam Reddish.

Bitadze, a fourth-year middle man, has remained negligible for Rick Carlisle and the Pacers this season. Stuck behind Isaiah Jackson, Jalen Smith, and even Daniel Theis in the second unit rotation, he has barely played this season. In fact, he’s logging the fewest minutes per game in his career since his rookie campaign.

Meanwhile, with three first-round picks and two second-rounders this year, Indiana has a grand sum of five total picks in this loaded draft class. That is a clear surplus of draft capital that will definitely not remain untouched, as due diligence (and roster limits) will push the Pacers to at least move one, and in this proposal, they would be discarding their worst one.

Now, let’s zoom in a bit on why this should be an offer the Pacers brass should put on the table for Reddish.
