Knicks’ Quentin Grimes addresses trade rumors with 3 teams interested

It’s no coincidence that Quentin Grimes has played the most minutes and scored the most points since he was relegated to the bench of the New York Knicks in lopsided victories.

Grimes scored 19 points in 23 minutes during the Knicks’ 122-84 loss to the defending champion Denver Nuggets on Thursday, Jan. 25, at Madison Square Garden. He also achieved a similar result in a 128-92 road win over the Philadelphia 76ers on January 5.

The subject of trade rumors, Grimes finally broke his silence after the Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards and Utah Jazz registered interest in him, according to SNY’s Ian Begley. “I have been involved in trade rumors since my rookie year. So I just try to come every day, do my job, be professional,” Grimes told SNY. “Every time I go on the pitch, I give 100%. The rumors will come true. I enter the field and try to do everything to help this team win.”
