Cam Reddish denies he wants to trade Knicks

Cam Reddish has landed outside of the Knicks’ rotation and could be on his way out of New York.

But after sitting out Wednesday night for the second straight game, Reddish repeatedly said he didn’t ask the Knicks to move him.

“I did not ask for any trade. “I haven’t,” Reddish said after the Knicks’ 113-89 win over his former team, the Hawks. “Really, you know more than I do. I don’t know what you’re talking about, but I didn’t ask for any trades, anything like that.

According to The Athletic, the Knicks are trying to include Reddish in a trade in an effort to shed $18 million in salary for Evan Fournier, who has not played since Nov. 13. Another report released Wednesday said the Knicks are working with Reddish’s representatives to find a trade partner.

Reddish was acquired in a January deal that sent a first-round pick to the Hawks, and he played in the Knicks’ first 19 games this season. He made eight starts before missing three games in late November.

With Quentin Grimes assuming the role of starting shooting guard in the absence of Quentin Grimes, a healthy Reddish — and Derrick Rose — were left out of Tom Thibodeau’s nine-man rotation in Sunday’s home win over the Cavaliers and Wednesday’s game.

“I am not sure [why]. I’m not the one to ask. “I’m not sure, to be honest with you,” said Reddish, who will be a free agent after this season. “I was doing my best on both sides of the field. Again, everything else is out of my control.

“My role, all this does not depend on me. Just going in and doing what I’m told. … I’ll do what the coach said, that’s it.”

Obi Toppin did not return to the game after the break because the Knicks are dealing with a sore right knee.

RJ Barrett, who signed a four-year, $107 million guaranteed contract this summer, will stay with the Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million contract, according to AL MVP Aaron Judge: “I saw it this morning. It’s huge. This year he It was great and congratulations to everyone.

“When I look at baseball contracts, it takes a while. Am I nine years old? Swelling. We like four or five. But no, man, congrats to him and glad he’s here for another nine years.
