About Kelly Oubre Jr. 

An American professional basketball player is named for Kelly Oubre Jr. He is playing for the current team, Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). His professional career began when he was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 15th overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft. After that, he was traded with Austin Rivers to the Phoenix Suns for Trevor Ariza on 17th December 2018. Recently on 16th November 2020, he was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a trade involving Chris Paul.

Kelly Oubre Jr. might be the biggest steal of the offseason for the Golden State Warriors as he helps them build for the future. Oubre is entering the 2020-21 season on a high after registering career totals in points, rebounds and 3-point shooting in the coronavirus hit 2019-20 campaign with the Phoenix Suns. As the Warriors approach the backend of Steph Curry, Thompson, and Draymond Green’s prime, the Dubs will need to find stars to compliment second overall pick James Wiseman as Joe Lacob, Steve Kerr, and Bob Myers looking for a seamless transition to the future. With 72 games awaiting Oubre, he'll have the chance to earn a long-term and remain in the Bay. Given the Warriors’ willingness to spend big money keepIng Oubre wouldn’t be shocking, even if it would result in a historic tax payout.
