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.
Stunningly, Quickley recorded eight 20 point games last season.
