BBC REPORT: New York Knicks make top trade chip untouchable ahead of Feb. 8 trade deadline…..

As the season approaches the 2024 NBA trade deadline, it appears the New York Knicks have left one of their most valuable trade chips, Immanuel Quickley, untouchable in recent trade discussions.The Knicks are having a solid season in 2023-24.

They are in the thick of the race for a top-four spot in the Eastern Conference and are currently ranked 11th in our latest NBA Power Rankings. However, a potential season-ending injury to Mitchell Robinson could significantly impact their chances of avoiding the spring playoff games. Although Robinson is the anchor of one of the league’s best defenses, New York appeared to be a big step away from being a serious title contender in 2024. That’s why there’s constant speculation that they could finally make a blockbuster deal before the February 8 NBA trade deadline.However, it seems that if they make a big move, they will try to do so without adding one of their most valuable young assets. On Friday, Yahoo Sports NBA insider Jake Fischer provided a very interesting update on whether bench player Immanuel Quickley could be part of packages to land another marquee player this season.“The gap in Immanuel Quickley’s extension talks this fall initially led rival teams to look at the combo guard as a possible trade candidate in February, especially after New York assessed his value to rival teams around this time last year. According to league sources, Quickley’s representation targeted an average annual value of around $25 million. And yet, Quickley’s name was virtually unknown in early NBA rumors. »It’s surprising that Quickley didn’t participate in trade talks despite the serious threat of losing him this summer. After a career year in 2022-23, the 24-year-old had another good season as a sixth man and it appears the organization is ready to bring him back next season.Immanuel Quickley Stats (2023-24): 14.7 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 2.6 APG, 38% 3PTQuickley will be a restricted free agent this offseason, meaning the New York Knicks could entertain any offer he receives from rival teams.
