The New York Knicks are acquiring Cam Reddish from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for fellow former first-round forward Kevin Knox, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

ESPN reported the Hawks will receive a protected 2022 first-round draft pick via the Charlotte Hornets. The Knicks, in turn, will acquire forward Solomon Hill and a 2025 second-round pick via the Brooklyn Nets.

The players won't have long to wait for a reunion. The Hawks host the Knicks on Saturday.

Reddish, 22, is averaging 11.9 points in 34 games (seven starts) this season. He has chipped in 11.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 118 career games since being selected by Atlanta with the 10th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Knox, 22, is averaging just 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds in 13 games off the bench this season. He has produced 8.2 points and 3.1 boards in 195 career games since being selected by New York with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Hill, 30, sustained a season-ending right hamstring injury in December. He has averaged 5.5 points and 3.1 boards in 448 career games with the Indiana Pacers, New Orleans Pelicans, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Hawks.
