Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett Traded

Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett Traded

On December 30th, 2023, the New York Knicks sent Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett to the Toronto Raptors for OG Anuboby, Precious Achiuwa, and Malachi Flynn. Fans knew that Quickley would end up being traded because he is supposedly going to get a lot of money this offseason as he enters free agency, and the Knicks just didn’t want to pay too much for a backup point guard.

Immanuel Quickley will be a superstar one day, and although it will not happen on the Knicks, many fans wish him the best.

RJ Barrett was the other player the Knicks sadly let go of. He recently signed an extension for 4 years and 107 million dollars. Barrett has not shown that he is worth that contract, and especially this season, which is set to be the worst of his career. The Knicks cut ties with him because of his lack of production. There is hope that something will click for him in Toronto because he is still so young and has a lot of potential.

OG Anunoby has been a very consistent player his whole career, he is a big man which the Knicks needed badly. He averages around 14 points a season, which is great, but he is mostly on the Knicks for his defense and size rather than being a main scorer. Anunoby will be a great piece for a playoff bound team.

Precious Achiuwa and Malachi Flynn are solid bench options, but they aren’t really amazing players

Overall this is one of the most even trades they have seen in a whale. Both teams got exactly what they needed and are both hopefully going to improve to serious playoff contenders.
