Beyond the DeMarcus Cousins-fueled Warriors, the Pacers are making the biggest gains in free agency among last year’s playoff teams.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
This sounds like the $4,449,000 room exception. After Evans and McDermott, Indiana doesn’t the cap space to offer more.
Importantly for O’Quinn, it’s more than the $4,256,250 player option he declined with the Knicks.
O’Quinn will back up Myles Turner at center. O’Quinn is a savvy defender and rebounder who shoots well from mid-range and has expanded his offensive skill set. He’ll be a big upgrade over the waived Al Jefferson.
