Immanuel Quickley is documenting his preparations for next month’s draft in the new series “Walking In My Purpose,” and yesterday, the first episode dropped on YouTube.
Quickley, his mother Nitrease, mentor Jide Sodipo, and John Calipari all chime in on his journey from Havre De Grace, Maryland to the University of Kentucky, and soon, to the NBA. There’s not a ton of new material other than workout footage, but we’ve grown to love Quickley and his family, so think of it as a nice six-minute catch-up with some old friends.
The draft takes place Wednesday, November 18. In recent mock drafts from Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo and The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie, Quickley is projected to go No. 38 to the New York Knicks, whom he’s met with twice, according to Adam Zagoria.
