Is Being Duke’s Third Wheel Hurting Cam Reddish’s NBA Draft Stock?

Bleacher Report

Duke's Cam Reddish is on track to become college basketball's most inefficient lottery pick in recent NBA draft history.

He's shooting a brutal 34.9 percent from the field, and yet there's still a high level of interest among scouts for the 6'8", 218-pound, 19-year-old wing.

He isn't earning any new fans with his 10.0 player efficiency rating during ACC play, but the bandwagon hasn't emptied out. 

The complicated Reddish scouting equation requires factoring in his significant role change from focal point in high school to No. 3 option behind Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett in college. Through 20 games, a combined 66.4 percent of his offense has come from spot-ups, transition or working off screens.

For the most part, it seems to have created wiggle room with scouts, who are showing a willingness to overlook the stats given the adjustment he's had to make in terms of touches and shot selection plus the long-term draw to his physical profile and shooting.

"Nothing's changed for me [since October]," one scout told Bleacher Report.
