Kyle O`Quinn

O'Quinn had an strong rookie campaign, often stuck behind Nicholson but frankly outperforming him. One of the best passers on the team, O'Quinn used his huge wingspan to also be one of the best rebounders in the league, and scored efficiently with a highly effective mid-range jumper and post finishing. O'Quinn might not be hugely athletic, but with the improvements in his jumper, he stands to be a very good role player with that, the vision, the IQ and the boards.

Kyle O'Quinn
PF, 6’10, 250lbs, 27 years old, 5 years of experience

The past year was a very good year for O’Quinn, who shot well both at the rim and on his mid-range jump shots, leading to a career high true shooting percentage of .552%. He also had a career high in offensive rebounding with a strong 13.7% mark, as well as career best marks in overall rebounding percentage, turnovers and blocks, and had some moments defensively, especially around the basket. He still bites on far too many fakes, commits too many fouls and gets stuck in the wrong position, but when he’s in right position, he contests well. Combined with some passing out of the pick-and-roll and some shooting out of the pick-and-pop, Quinn has had a breakout season as a role player, and it bears remembering that he was already plenty decent beforehand.

Player Plan: Just played a minimum salary contract season, and did not prove himself to be worthy of another one.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 25th November 2017

O’Quinn is always quite productive, a useful two-way role player who blocks shots, rebounds on the defensive end, passes very well out of the pick-and-roll, and sticks just enough re-feed mid-range jump shots to justify his taking of them. He would play more if he fouled a bit less and if more minutes were available. But more minutes, it seems, might now be - O’Quinn has played ahead of prospect Willy Hernnagomez all year as the primary backup to starter Enes Kanter, and when Kanter missed last night’s game, O’Quinn got the start. If Kanter is out again, consider O’Quinn here.
