Immanuel Quickley of the New York Knicks assured that, despite the looming deadline and the absence of a signed contract extension, he will remain focused on rigorous practice and full-throttle gameplay, expressing indifference towards the prospect of potential injuries.
“That’s where my faith comes in,” the backup guard said. “Really all up to God. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been fortunate to not even be worrying about it. It goes days, sometimes weeks, where I just forget about all that stuff.
“Unless somebody reminds me. So just coming in everyday and trying to get better is my main focus.”
Quickley and the Knicks have until 5 p.m. on Oct. 23 to agree to terms.
