Kyle O'Quinn has opted out of his $4.8 million contract, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi. If Enes Kanter picks up his $18.6 million player option, the Knicks will not have significant cap space to spend in free agency this summer. New York open to bringing O'Quinn back on a short-term contract, per sources, but the club is unlikely to offer O'Quinn a contract that would significantly compromise its cap space in 2019.

With the Lakers acquiring the 39th pick from the 76ers for a 2019 second round pick via Bulls and cash according to Adrian Wojnarowski, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka can add one of the many second-round prospects they've worked out in the last couple months. The Lakers need shooting and are looking for versatility and the ability to perhaps play and/or guard multiple positions. They also have worked out a bunch of big men who have intriguing potential or can stretch the floor and rebound.

Several agents are under the impression that the Knicks are strongly opposed to signing free agents to multi-year contracts this summer in order to preserve cap space for 2019, so maybe NYK offers O'Quinn a raise on a one-year deal?

The Lakers brought Arizona's Allonzo Trier in for a second workout this week, according to league sources. The Lakers are looking to improve their shooting and Trier shot better in the second workout than his first according to sources. The 6-5 guard's stock could be rising.

Kyle O'Quinn declining his $4.25M contract will only impact the Knicks cap space this offseason if Enes Kanter decides to decline his $18.6M option. If Kanter returns, New York will be right at the cap. New York will have the $8.6M non tax midlevel and $3.4M biannual exception.
