Still, if O’Quinn can add a long-range shot to his arsenal, it would have a beneficial impact for the Magic — and for O’Quinn. “It could open up a lot of things,” O’Quinn said. “Number one, me and Vooch [center Nik Vucevic] might see more minutes together. We won’t just clog the paint. He’s a better finisher in the paint, a better post-up player. So if we let him have the paint, it’s probably to our advantage. And it may give me a couple more minutes because I’m not sitting on top of him, crowding his space. So I could space out, I guess, and help out the spacing of the team.” The Magic recognize the value of a stretch 4. Orlando Sentinel

The Magic and O'Quinn agreed to a three-year contract that the team is expected to announce Thursday. "It's pretty emotional," O'Quinn told the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday night.

The Magic will hold team options for the second and third seasons, and if the team exercises both options, the contract will be worth a total of $2.5 million. Orlando Sentinel

It is one of the great rags-to-riches New York stories. Four years ago Kyle O’Quinn was graduating from Campus Magnet High in Queens with only one scholarship offer. On Wednesday night he signed a three-year, $2.5 million contract to play for the Orlando Magic of the NBA. “He couldn’t be more excited,” said Alberto Ebanks, his agent. “This is him fulfilling his dream, a dream a lot of people probably never envisioned.” New York Daily News
