Kentucky G Immanuel Quickley Signs with Roc Nation
After two years at the University of Kentucky, Immanuel Quickley has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft and signed with Roc Nation. The 6’3” guard averaged 16.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists for the Wildcats last season. He evolved as one of the nation’s top scoring threats being named SEC Player of the Year and All-SEC First Team.
Last month, Quickley made his announcement on Twitter to enter the 2020 NBA Draft saying, “I’ve decided to forgo my remaining eligibility by declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft and signing with an agent. I want to thank Coach Cal, the entire UK coaching staff and administration, my brothers/teammates, and Big Blue Nation for all your love and support the past two years. I’m grateful for everyone that helped me along my journey.”
In Yahoo Sports’ NBA Mock Draft 3.0, Quickley is projected to be the first pick in the 2nd round being drafted 31st overall by the Dallas Mavericks.
