Orlando Magic Sign Kyle O'Quinn

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Orlando Magic announced Thursday that they've signed rookie big man Kyle O'Quinn. The team declined to disclose details of the deal, but Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports it's for three seasons and a total of $2.5 million, though only the first season is guaranteed.

Orlando selected O'Quinn with the 49th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. The Norfolk State senior earned Lou Henson honors as the nation's top mid-major player and was named the MEAC Player of the Year, as he averaged 15.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks in 36 appearances. O'Quinn twice won the MEAC Defensive Player of the Year award.

O'Quinn made his Magic debut at the Orlando Pro Summer League in July, posting per-game averages of 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 54.1 percent from the floor.

O'Quinn's deal gives the Magic 13 players with guaranteed contracts for the 2012/13 season. Training-camp invitees Ish Smith and DeAndre Liggins do not have guaranteed deals.
