There are a few notable players who still don’t have a NBA home as the season approaches. One of the those players is Kelly Oubre Jr. Oubre is an eight year NBA veteran. He has averaged 12.8 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game. While shooting 43% from the floor and 33% from three.
Last season, Oubre had his best scoring season as he averaged 20.3 points per game. He wasn’t the most efficient as he shot 43% from the field and 32% from three. This may be the reason he is unsigned this deep into the off-season.
The Phoenix Suns should look into picking up Oubre. Oubre played his best ball while playing for Phoenix at the end of the 2018-19 season through 2019-20 season. He averaged 17.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. He was also efficient as he shot 45% from the field and 34% from three.
The New Orleans native could be a important player off the bench for Phoenix. He would add scoring and versatility. If Oubre is coming off of the bench, maybe the Suns could start Eric Gordon at point guard. This move would definitely open up some different possibilities for the rotation.
