Kyle O’Quinn headed to Knicks in sign-and-trade with Magic

Kyle O’Quinn, one of only two HBCU alumni in the NBA, is on the move. The former Norfolk State star has agreed to a four-year, $16 million dollar deal with the New York Knicks as part of a sign-and-trade deal with the Orlando Magic, according to Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarwoski. 

O’Quinn spent the first three seasons of his career with the Orlando Magic after the team selected him 49th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft. The 6’10, 250 pound forward averaged 6 points and 5 rebounds in the 2014-15 season.

O’Quinn and 76ers forward Robert Covington (Tennessee State) are the only two players from HBCUs to play in the NBA over the last few seasons.
