The likes of Dewayne Dedmon and Andrew Nicholson appear have overtaken O'Quinn in Orlando's rotation. In his first 16 appearances of the 2014/15 campaign--which included nine starts--Kyle O'Quinn averaged 9.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, shot 51.8 percent from the floor, and tallied three double-doubles. He went on to start eight more games for the Orlando Magic, contributing precious little--he never cracked double-digit scoring or rebounding in any of those contests--and then essentially disappeared from the face of the earth. Indeed, the Norfolk State product has seen his minutes and role fluctuate throughout his third professional season. And as Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes, that instability comes at a most inopportune time: O'Quinn is set to become a free agent in July, and his lack of consistent playing time could affect his payday.
