New York Knicks center Kyle O'Quinn will become an unrestricted free agent after declining his player option for the 2018-19 season, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time).
New York Knicks center Kyle O’Quinn has declined his $4.2M option for the 2018-19 season to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, league sources told ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 21, 2018
In a reserve role, O'Quinn posted career-highs in points (7.1), rebounds (4.5) and assists (2.1) last season while shooting 58.5 percent from the field.
O'Quinn's decision to opt out does not necessarily mean his time with the Knicks is over. Depending on their draft and free agency decisions, the Knicks could still choose to re-sign him.
O'Quinn just completed his sixth NBA season, including three years with Orlando and three with New York.
