Kyle O'Quinn, Orlando Magic center/power forward


HT:  6-10  WT:  240  COLLEGE: Norfolk State

AGE: Turns 23 on March 26, 2013.

NBA SEASONS: 2012-13 is his rookie year.


HOW HE CAME TO ORLANDO: Drafted 49th overall in 2012.

SCOUTING REPORT: O’Quinn played four seasons at Norfolk State and averaged 15.9 points per game as a senior. He led the 15th-seeded Spartans to an upset of second-seeded Missouri in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. O’Quinn didn’t start playing competitive basketball until his junior year of high school, so he still has plenty of room to develop. In the meantime, he’ll be asked to provide energy off the Magic’s bench. He runs the court well for a big man, and he’s a hard-nosed player.

ODDS & ENDS: O’Quinn hails from Queens, N.Y. . . . He’s one of the funnier players on the Magic roster.
