REPORT: Sixers, Clippers, Pelicans in the running for Knicks’ Kyle O’Quinn

Kyle O'Quinn

Free agent center Kyle O’Quinn has received plenty of interest since opting out of the last year of his contract with the New York Knicks.

The Philadelphia 76ers have continued to express interest in him, along with other teams like the L.A. Clippers and the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.

O’Quinn had an excellent season playing behind Enes Kanter and even seeing some time at power forward in the absence of Kristaps Porzingis.

The big man posted 7.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in a limited 18 minutes per game.

A quick bit of math projects these numbers to 14.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per 36 minutes — as the 6-foot-11 center has plenty of double-double potential is given ample playing time.

A defensive stalwart with a good motor and also a willing passer — O’Quinn possesses the right tool set for teams looking to add depth or looking to give him the opportunity to get his first starting gig in the league.
