Andy and Randy were joined by newly drafted Atlanta Hawks small forward/shooting guard Cam Reddish. 

Reddish, the former Duke star and 10th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, started off the interview laughing because we came back from commercial break playing an Outkast song, which is a group Reddish could not identify after the draft on Thursday night.

"I was just blanking on camera but I know who Outkast is," said Reddish.

"My dad wore number 44 when he played and I just wanted to be half of him," responded Reddish when asked about why he is wearing number 22.

Reddish then talked about the relationships he already has with players like Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and Omari Spellman.

"I was used to playing on the ball a lot but that's why Duke prepared me for this level," said Reddish about his role at Duke.

"I have a calm demeanor that people take the wrong way," said Reddish when people question his lack of motor.

"I prayed that I would come to Atlanta,' said Reddish when asked about the Hawks picking him.
