REPORT: Momentum shifting toward NBA for Immanuel Quickley

After optimism picked up last week that Kentucky guard Immanuel Quickley was potentially leaning toward returning for a junior season, the momentum is reportedly shifting back the other direction.

According to Kyle Tucker of The Athletic, it’s now looking like Quickley may “strike while the iron is hot” and enter the NBA Draft.

“Having talked to a few folks now who are feeling this way, looks like the pendulum is swinging toward the NBA for Immanuel Quickley,” he said on Twitter. “Still some feedback to be gathered, but there’s a sense that maybe he needs to strike while the iron is hot after an SEC Player of the Year season.
