news flash: Immanuel Quickley Offered Non-Guaranteed…….

According to SNY’s Ian Begley, the New York Knicks have reportedly offered Immanuel Quickley a non-guaranteed contract with a team option during extension talks this season.


According to that report, the Knicks offered no inducements in the deal and the two sides “never got over the hump of the structure of a potential deal.”While reports suggested Quickley would ask for (or could earn) between $20 million and $25 million per season in a new deal, Begley reported that “there was never any request during negotiations to hit a certain number “.

“He wants nine figures,” an executive told Heavy Sports’ Sean Deveney in September. “And for four years. I can’t say the Knicks will get that high, but they might have to. He’s not someone you want to send out on restricted release.”ESPN’s Bobby Marks previously estimated Quickley’s potential value at four years and $85 million on his next deal. And HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto reported Nov. 29 that the fourth-year guard “was offered about $18 million per year in extension negotiations, league sources told HoopsHype.” However, Quickley was looking for $25 million per year instead.

Given the difference in valuation there and the number of guards the Knicks currently have on the roster — and the possibility they could try to go after a star either during the season or in free agency this summer – Quickley is a player who The trading block could be found.“I think Quickley could be the best trade activist in New York next to Jalen Brunson,” an NBA executive told Scotto in November.

The 24-year-old continues to be an impressive scorer off the Knicks bench, averaging 15 points and 2.9 assists in just 24.2 minutes per game, while shooting 42.8 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from beyond the arc, scoring three goals. The Knicks will be able to match any offer he receives in restricted free agency next summer.

That will ultimately determine his market value, and if a team comes close to Quickley’s asking price in free agency, it will be fascinating to see if the Knicks pull off such a lucrative deal given their supposedly modest offers.
