NYK Power Forward/Center: 6’10, 250 lbs; 6th year, Norfolk State

NBA Role: offensive-minded center UnderDOG

A rugged lumberjack w/ some skillz, Kyle O’Quinn adds scoring & rebounding to the Knicks; a hard-working NY native, KO’s a vastly underrated big in the Association: mammoth presence in the lane (more of a throwback center in that regard) but has an OK jumper that extends near the three-point line; still learning how to play defense without fouling – takes up a lot of space, could thrive as a low-post defender; infectious energy and passion on the floor – great locker room guy; NYK’s primary backup center – KO gives Joakim Noah rest, plays alongside KP at times; A1 beard game – definitely in the 1% of today’s league
