pretty decent in a 3rd string backup PF or Center role

He’s gonna work hard for you. Aggressive on the defensive glass. Protects the rim fairly well. Can knock down shots but not super consistent with that.

His biggest downfall is that sometimes he thinks he’s John Stockton and will commit dumb turnovers trying to force the issue on a pass.

at 15-18 minutes/game, yes. Anything more, like others said, you're probably asking for too much.

But with Horford & Embiid, I don't see O'Quinn getting a ton of minutes if both are playing. Now with Embiid/Horford maintenance days, I'd see 15-18 being the max he gets.

You'll like him. I never wanted him to leave.

good player but wipes out anything good with a bonehead play.

Perfectly stated. I like KOQ and most fans will but hes dangerous in the fact that in limited minutes he could appear like a good player and I guess in limited minutes he IS a good player but once you extend it by even alittle his flaws jump out.

O'quinn plays tough and he grinds but in reality hes a tweener more than a C. Hes basically a 90s traditional PF whose too slow to play PF and too lacking in length to be a C. Doesnt have a high skill level at either position. Hes basically a box out putback artist with a little foul line extended range on assisted jumpers. That's what he does on offense. On defense he uses his fouls and boxes out but hes in no way a stopper if the player hes defending has any elite ability to score. He is a solid passer and unselfish. He'll set hard screens, stand up for his teammates and hes a favorite in the locker room.

KO'Q is from my neighborhood. He's a good guy and a very decent backup at PF or C. He may not be the guy who wins games, but he won't lose them for you. He will earn his keep very nicely for you.

I'd keep him around just for his sense of humor. :lol:

Good backup, probably needs to slim down

Nah, I think he is done. He is the type of player that is serviceable but falls off hard and out of the nba in late 20s

Slightly disagree with this. He may be undersized in height, but not in length. KOQ despite being 6'8-6'10 he has a 7'5 wingspan. Hes always been fine protecting the rim with his length. He has limited lift around the rim...thats his main issue....NOt his length.

K.O was one of my favorite players for everything that has has been posted in this thread. Hard worker, great rebounder, decent shot out to 3, and plays well with limited minutes. But like some guys are saying bonehead plays you expect from rookies like fouling a rebounder for no reason or elbowing his opponent right in front of a ref is the norm for him. He's the player you want to put someone (KD, Lebron, KP) on their azz and lay down the law in the key.

Definitely. He's one of those players that is easy to root for. He makes up for what he lacks in natural talent with hustle and toughness. If I were a GM and I was constructing a team I'd get my big 3 or so together, throw in a 6th man scorer on the bench and then I would surround them with guys like Kyle O'Quinn at each position. They're usually cheap and they do the little things to win.
