Crucial Role: Immanuel Quickley in the Raptors-Knicks Trade

The New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors have come together to make a trade, with OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa, and Malachi Flynn going to the Knicks and RJ Barrett, Immanuel Quickley, and a 2024 second round pick heading to the Raptors. The discussion around this trade has mostly revolved around Barrett and Anunoby, with Anunoby being seen as a perfect fit for the Knicks with his defensive skills and efficient playing, while Barrett has struggled to live up to expectations. Quickley, who is now with the Raptors, is seen as someone who could benefit from the change and contribute significantly to the team’s offense. At his best, he could reach the heights of bigger names like Tyrese Maxey. His play and improvement in Toronto will be closely watched.
