Immanuel Quickley, New York Knicks, NBA Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

The New York Knicks have been an interesting team to watch so far this season. While we are still early in the season, the team has been very up-and-down already. One thing to keep an eye on as the season moves forward will be potential trades ahead of the NBA deadline, and the Knicks are reportedly open to dealing both Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley for the right price.

Quickley being available is a bit of a surprise. New York would have to be given a lot in return, but the young guard has a very bright future ahead of him.

According to a report from The Athletic, the Knicks are looking for a first-round pick in return for Quickley. It would be surprising that’s all it took for a team to acquire him, but that’s the current reported asking price.

At the time of this writing, the Knicks are the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. They hold a 9-9 record and have had a hard time finding any consistency. Another move that could be on the horizon is moving on from head coach Tom Thibodeau, which has been rumored for quite some time now.

So far this season, Quickley has played in 18 games but hasn’t logged a single start. He has averaged 22.8 minutes per game, scoring 9.1 points per game to go along with 4.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists. Quickley has also shot 37.9 percent from the floor and 30.9 percent from the three-point line.

Clearly, his offensive efficiency has not been great. That could be part of the reason that the Knicks are open to moving him at this point.

All of that being said, Immanuel Quickley is just 23 years old and possesses a ton of potential. If the Knicks are truly looking to move on from him, there will be quite a few teams calling with interest. A first-round pick is a reasonable price to pay for a guard with the talent and potential that Quickley possesses.
