Breaking: Knicks Select Immanuel Quickley, Trade Bolmaro

With the 23rd overall pick, the Knicks traded the pick and then selected Immanuel Quickley. New York traded the pick along with Leandro Bolmaro to the Minnesota Timberwolves for picks 25 and 33.

On draft boards, Quickley has been dubbed as a late first-rounder or early second-rounder. Interestingly, the Knicks picked Quickley with Stanford guard Tyrell Terry on the board.

In 2020, Quickly averaged 16.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game. Amazingly enough, he shot 42 percent from downtown, averaging 4.3 made threes per game.

Immanuel Quickley’s player comparison is Mario Chalmers. He’s also Royal Ivey with a three-point shot.

Stunningly, Quickley recorded eight 20 point games last season.

Immanuel Quickley’s Strengths:

  • has good length for short height; 6’3 wingspan with 6’9 like wingspan
  • has the ability to hit one-dribble rhythm shots off the bounce as well as running screens
  • quick mechanics when spotting up
  • can rack up points with the ball off the ground
  • efficient three-point shooter 42% from three in 2019

Weaknesses:

  • lacks explosiveness on the court
  • struggles to finish near the rim
  • non-physical player
  • Not a natural playmaker
  • mediocre ball-handler

The Knicks needed a point guard and they got one. The question is: Will Quickley start or come off the bench?

It’s honestly worth a shot to put Immanuel Quickley in the starting lineup
