In an interview with NBA.com, Pacers’ President Kevin Pritchard said that Kyle O'Quinn was not promised a place in the rotation during his recruitment.
Here is the exact quote: "We don't know if you're going to play a minute or 500 minutes, but there's a role that Al Jefferson held last year that was a tremendous role for us that's so important." This makes the O’Quinn signing even more interesting as it appears that he signed up to be the back up man in an already crowed frontcourt. Big Al managed to play 13.4 minutes across 36 appaerances last season and that was mainly due to Myles Turner missing multiple games due to injuries. KOQ usually has late-round value even in standard leagues but with him being stuck behind Turner, Sabonis and Young there won’t be many minutes left for him.
