The New York Knicks have reportedly received calls from "several teams" asking about the trade availability of third-year guard Immanuel Quickley.

SNY's Ian Begley reported Saturday the Knicks may be hesitant to move Quickley but noted rival NBA front offices believe New York will "consider trading off at least one of the young players on their roster as the deadline approaches" in February.

Quickley is an interesting case because his offensive efficiency is a major source of concern—39.1 career field-goal percentage, including 34.8 percent in 12 games this season—but he's able to offset those struggles on defense.

The 23-year-old University of Kentucky product ranks third in the NBA in FiveThirtyEight's defensive Raptor (plus-5.9), which is tied with Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, the league's two-time defending Most Valuable Player.
