Backup center Kyle O’Quinn officially is an ex-Knick. O’Quinn, who opted out of a contract that would have paid him $4.25 million next season, agreed to terms on a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Pacers, a league source confirmed. The Queens product spent three years with the Knicks, averaging 6.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.
O’Quinn becomes the third free agent to pick Indiana this summer, joining Doug McDermott and Tyreke Evans.
O’Quinn is entering his seventh NBA season, after spending three with Orlando and three with the Knicks. He averaged a career-high 7.1 points per game last season and has yet to appear in a postseason game.
