Reddish, meanwhile, still lacks the strength to contain big, physical wings, but his length, agility and hands make him Atlanta’s best option against quicker guards. He harasses ball-handlers and navigates screens better than Hunter does, and has shown a proclivity for disrupting plays away from the ball as well.

That consistency may come in his third season as he plays within a more structured offensive environment, and if Hunter returns as the scorer and defender he appeared to be last season, the Hawks will have answered two exceedingly important questions at a critical position.Memphis Grizzlies Tapestrys
