The goal for the Knicks is to add another high draft pick that can be used to turn around the team's fortunes.

After the quote was made public, O'Quinn posted an Instagram story saying he didn't mean for the comment to be a shot against his ex-squad.

That tells you something about what he thought about the Knicks in 2018-2019.

It's also a place O'Quinn seemed happy to leave behind, telling reporters on Monday that he wanted to "play for something more than next year's draft" after signing with the Indiana Pacers, according to Charlie Clifford of WISH-TV. That run of irrelevance bumped their active postseason drought to five seasons, which is a lot for a big market team in a league where more than half the teams get in.

The Pacers finished fifth in the Eastern Conference in 2017-18, and like the rest of the conference, they won't have to deal with LeBron James after he agreed to a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

As for IN, they won 48 games last year, grabbed a five-seed, and probably should've beat the Cavaliers IN a seven-game series IN the first round of this past year's playoffs. And at 28 years old, it's easy to sympathize with O'Quinn for not wanting to be part of that. "After the run (the Pacers) had past year, they're pretty established, I would say".

Veteran big man Kyle O'Quinn has never made it to the playoffs in any of his first six seasons in the National Basketball Association, three of which he spent wearing New York Knicks colors.
