New York Knicks guard and former Kentucky Wildcat Immanuel Quickley was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team on Thursday night. Quickley played a significant role off the bench for the Knicks this season, providing instant offense on efficient shooting. With the first and third overall picks from the 2020 draft (Anthony Edwards/LaMelo Ball) being selected to the first team, Quickley was in pretty good company being recognized for second team honors.
Quickley averaged 11.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2 assists in 64 games played.
The Knicks asserted themselves back in the playoffs this year, only to be quickly knocked out by the Atlanta Hawks.
