Report: Sixers remain interested in Kyle O'Quinn

By Brandon Apter, Sports Talk Philly Staff 

The Philadelphia 76ers just re-signed JJ Redick to a one-year deal, filling a need on offense. One of the team's other needs is the back-up center role. Amir Johnson seems unlikely to return and Richaun Holmes fell out of favor in Brett Brown's rotation last season and frankly, he's more of a power forward anyway. The Sixers have been linked to free agent center Kyle O'Quinn and they remain interested in the former Knick as of Monday.

O'Quinn, 28, would provide a more physical, energetic presence behind Joel Embiid, standing an inch taller and 10 pounds heavier than Amir Johnson. He'd bring more of an offensive game to the back-up role and is very active on the glass. O'Quinn averaged 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 77 games last season, shooting 51.8 percent from the floor.
