It has already been reported that the New York Knicks have been in talks to ship-out guard Derrick Rose from their roster, but latest reports suggest that they may also be looking to move on from another veteran on their roster: center Kyle O’Quinn.
Per Frank Isola of NY Daily News–
One NBA team that has spoken with the Knicks says they're looking to get a first round pick for Kyle O'Quinn.

It’s currently unknown how high a value O’Quinn holds on the trade market, but it’s pretty clear that the Knicks think they can get solid compensation in return. A first round pick is a high to price to pay for a player who only averages just north of 15 minutes per game. However, O’Quinn does make the most of his time on the floor, averaging a very solid 6.4 points per game and 5.6 rebounds per game. He also boasts an incredible 20.86 PER.
