If there is one player the New York Knicks need to trade, it’s center Kyle O’Quinn.
Even though New York Knicks’ center Kyle O’Quinn has drawn plenty of trade interest from around the NBA, it’s starting to sound like they’re not pressed to get rid of him.
Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that the Knicks aren’t desperate to move on from O’Quinn.
Even though Kyle O’Quinn is expected to opt out of his player option this summer, the Knicks aren’t desperate to move him for a second-round pick.
O’Quinn definitely helps the Knicks chances of making the playoffs this season, but the way they’ve been playing since Christmas day, the last thing New York can count on at this point is making the postseason.
Trading O’Quinn would could depend on what the Knicks could get in return for him. If a team is willing to give up a second round pick for him, that would be ideal for him and general manager Scott Perry would be smart to take that offer and run.
On the flip side, if a team wants to give up a player that has an expiring contract, keeping O’Quinn would make sense, even though he’s expected to opt out of his contract. The Knicks don’t need an expiring contract in exchange for O’Quinn, given the fact that he’s likely opting out of his deal.
If the Knicks are going to make a trade this season, I think it will involve O’Quinn. But that is just my opinion. Comment below and give ms your thoughts.
