NBA Trade Rumors: The Milwaukee Bucks, Dallas Mavericks, and Washington Wizards have expressed interest in Immanuel Quickley.

The New York Knicks are reportedly shopping a number of their players. One that has reportedly been on the trade block for a couple of months now (at least) is Immanuel Quickley. The acquisition of Jalen Brunson during the offseason has made him somewhat expendable for the team. Thus, Quickley being moved at the trade deadline wouldn’t come as that big of a surprise.

Quickley has had a solid season thus far and is averaging 12 points and four rebounds on 42 percent shooting from the field. However, with Brunson on the roster, he doesn’t seem like a solid investment for the Knicks. Considering he still has one more year on his contract before he possibly hits restricted free agency, this could be a good time for a change of scenery.

And according to a recent report, the Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards, and Dallas Mavericks have all expressed interest in trading for Quickley ahead of the trade deadline. Whether or not the Knicks end up moving Quickley remains to be seen, but there is interest in him on the open market.

In addition to Quickley, there are several other Knicks players that have found themselves in the trade rumor mill this season. Derrick Rose, Cam Reddish, and Evan Fournier are three other names that could seemingly be moved by the Knicks at the deadline.

It would be highly unlikely for the Knicks to trade all four of these players, but a combination of them being moved in deals at the deadline should be viewed as a realistic possibility.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Knicks operate at the trade deadline. Unless something drastic happens over the next few weeks, this is a team that should be buying and not selling at the deadline. However, there’s also a chance that the right deal doesn’t exactly come together.

If that does end up being the case, would the Knicks continue to move forward with swapping out some of their rotation players for the sake of making moves? Keep an eye on what takes place in New York over the next few weeks. They should be a team that ends up making more than one deal.
