The Knicks’ interest in trading Kyle O’Quinn at the Feb. 9 trade deadline will rise at the same rate as their chances of making the draft lottery. […]
The Knicks are under the impression O’Quinn, a Queens product who is on a modest pact considering his improvement this season, will opt out this summer. […]
Unwilling to pay him major bucks with their investment in Enes Kanter and Hernangomez, the Knicks would like to get either a draft pick or a 25-and-under prospect for O’Quinn, especially if they become a playoff long shot by the trade deadline.
