NBA Draft Profile: Kyle O'Quinn
Kyle O'Quinn – PF – 6'10, 240 lbs.
There is plenty of room for improvement on the offensive end, but Kyle's solid footwork and knack for finding open spots on the baseline will make his transition into the NBA a lot smoother. His 7”4 wingspan gives him the ability to block shots at the next level, too.
A legitimate concern is that he was able to get by on his physical attributes in both the MEAC and versus an undersized Missouri team in the NCAA tournament. However, the fact that he played hoops on and off in high school and only received one scholarship offer (Norfolk st.) adds to the intrigue and makes him a potential steal in the late first or early second round.
ESPN's NBA Draft guru, Chad Ford, wrote that "When he's motivated, he can be a presence on both ends of the floor."
