Kelly Oubre Jr. is anticipated to sign a one-year handle the Philadelphia 76ers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Though terms have actually not yet been launched, the offer will in all possibility come for a minimum wage. The 76ers are currently above the very first high-end tax apron, and while they have space to spare prior to the 2nd, they would likely choose to conserve space below it in case it is required for a midseason James Harden trade. Considering Oubre rested on the marketplace up until the middle of September, it is not likely that he had a much better deal readily available.

That is rather unexpected provided his resume. Oubre balanced 20.3 points per video game last season as a member of the Charlotte Hornets and has actually begun over 200 NBA video games. However, he’s never ever handled to stick to the very same group for more than a couple of years. The Wizards traded him to the Suns in the middle of his 4th season. He invested parts of 2 years in Phoenix, followed by a single year with the Warriors and 2 with the Hornets.

Oubre is an aggravating gamer. He is a skilled scorer with a wide variety of physical presents, however that has actually never ever equated into constant production on a winning group. His defense leaves something to be wanted, his 3-point shot has actually been irregular at finest and in his only year with the Warriors, he had a hard time to adapt to their special offending system, which needs a high basketball IQ. Wings are so limited around the league that Oubre will constantly have the ability to discover a task, however so far, he has actually not measured up to the lofty skill he has actually so regularly shown.

But Philadelphia tends to bank on skill when it can. Daryl Morey has actually changed a variety of lesser-known reserves like Georges Niang, Jalen McDaniels and Shake Milton for better-known veterans like Patrick Beverley and Mo Bamba. The 76ers are wagering they can optimize Oubre’s skill. If they do so, they’ll have included an important factor for a really affordable cost.
