The market for O’Quinn is unclear, but backup centers such as the Chicago Bulls’ Cristiano Felicio (four years, $32 million) and Milwaukee Bucks’ John Henson (four years, $48 million) may provide framework for O’Quinn’s market this summer. New York can exceed the salary cap to re-sign O’Quinn, which is something that, based on coaches and executives’ opinions of him, will be considered in July. Knicks coaches have been impressed by O’Quinn’s consistency this season and his ability to find cutters and shooters as a passer.

NBA executives describe two types of tanking tactics: active and passive. Passive tanking is often done under the guise of player development. One classic method is putting healthy veterans on the inactive list, as the Bulls have done with center Robin Lopez and small forward Justin Holiday since the All-Star break, inserting Cristiano Felicio and David Nwaba into the starting lineup. It’s sitting core players for key stretches in games, as the Mavs have recently made routine.

Chicago Bulls center Cristiano Felicio prefers to focus on the positive when he returns to Sacramento. California’s state capital was a steppingstone in the Brazilian’s amazing journey from undrafted free agent to summer league long shot to finally making it to the NBA. Lifelong friends were made here. But the 25-year-old Felicio tries to block out the nightmare of when he briefly played in an area prep school program for a man who went to prison for abusing the players. “My story can motivate people not to give up your dreams, to keep fighting, to keep working to get where you want it to go,” Felicio said.
