Kyle O'Quinn will reportedly be asking for $30 million in guaranteed money on his next contract this summer.
On a day where Enes Kanter started to wonder out loud if he'll be opting out of his deal this summer, word has it that O'Quinn isn't wondering anymore and plans to opt out in an effort to get paid. KOQ is coming off a career year where he averaged career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and field goal percentage. Teams likely won't pony up big money for a backup center as the spending spree of 2016 feels like a lifetime ago for front offices. Still, it'll be interesting to see what the market looks like for O'Quinn this summer as there are not many backups as reliable as this Norfolk State product.
