2021 Fantasy Outlook
Oubre will be joining his fourth team in as many years. He spent the 2020-21 campaign with the Warriors, where he started off the season abysmally slow. He eventually picked up his production, and from Feb. 4 onward, he averaged 17.6 points on 47/37/68 shooting, 6.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.7 combined steals-plus-blocks. During those 34 appearances, he ranked 108th in per-game fantasy value. This season, Oubre will be joining the Hornets on a two-year, $26 million-plus deal. He figures to land in a sixth-man role on the wing behind Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward, though Oubre will also be competing with rookie James Bouknight and Miles Bridges for minutes. That said, Charlotte isn't an especially deep team, so Oubre shouldn't have too much trouble getting run. His numbers don't translate well to fantasy, so he's not usually relevant in standard leagues unless he's seeing 30-plus minutes regularly. That doesn't appear to be a lock with the Hornets, so he's probably a late-round flier in most formats. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Oubre was born in 1995 in New Orleans, Louisiana to parents Tonya and Kelly Sr. He has two siblings -- a sister, Amber Coleman, and a brother, Gared Washington. When Oubre was in the fourth grade, he was forced to move from New Orleans with his father due to Hurricane Katrina. By his high school years, Oubre had relocated to George Bush High School in Texas before transferring to Findlay Prep in Nevada for his senior year. Oubre is involved in the community, providing scholarships to 10 high school students in the New Orleans area in 2017-18 and 2018-19. He also contributed to teammate DeAndre Ayton's Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in October 2019. You can follow Oubre on Twitter (@KELLYOUBREJR) and Instagram (@kellyoubrejr). Oubre was named to the 2014-15 Big 12 All-Freshman Team and the All-Big 12 Honorable Mention list. The Henderson, Nevada native helped lead Kansas to the 14-15 Big 12 regular-season title and the third round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament. He was second on the team in total rebounds (179) and steals (41), as well as steals per game (1.1) and defensive rebounds per game (3.8). In addition, Oubre was third in free throws per game (2.2) and fourth in points per game (9.3) for the Jayhawks. Oubre announced he would enter the 2015 NBA Draft after his freshman year at Kansas. He was selected in the first round (15th overall) by the Atlanta Hawks.

In his first full year with Phoenix, Oubre took plenty of noticeable steps forward. Though he was forced to miss time with a torn meniscus and played just 56 games, he put up career-high numbers across the board when on the court. The fifth-year man averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.9 triples -- all career-best numbers. Aside from his performance from the charity stripe, his shooting splits of 45.2/35.2/78.0 were the best marks of his career as well. Oubre clearly played behind the high-usage Devin Booker in shot attempts and scoring, though he was nearly dead-even with DeAndre Ayton as the team's second option on offense. For this upcoming season, Oubre should again have a significant role -- this time on the Warriors. Following the news that Klay Thompson suffered a season-ending Achilles tear and will miss a second straight campaign, Golden State went out and traded a protected first-round pick for Oubre. He figures to start on the wing next to Andrew Wiggins and should see plenty of action, as the Warriors bench remains desperately thin. We shouldn't be surprised if Oubre is able to re-create the success he had last season.
Oubre contributed career-high averages in points (15.2), rebounds (4.7), steals (1.2), blocks (0.9) and minutes (29.5) while matching his career highs in threes (1.6) and assists (1.2) in 2018-19. Oubre also splashed in a career-best field goal percentage (44.5), delivering the rarely accomplished boost in both production and efficiency. He was already on pace to set career highs across most categories through 29 appearances with the Wizards, and his counting stats and field goal percentage only improved following his trade to the Suns. Across 40 contests for Phoenix, Oubre averaged 16.9 points (45.3 FG%, 32.5 3P%, 76.1 FT%), 4.9 rebounds, 1.7 threes, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 block in 29.5 minutes per game. Moreover, he turned it up another notch after the All-Star break, pouring in 20.2 points (46.9 FG%, 34.3 3P%, 75.0 FT%), 5.7 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 1.9 threes, 1.6 assists and 0.9 blocks in 32.9 minutes per game, albeit in just 12 matchups. Oubre's second-half surge provides a reason for optimism about his progression going forward, as does the team's decision to re-sign him to a healthy two-year contract. Whether Oubre earns a starting role or not, he's likely to continue earning plenty of minutes on the wing thanks to his versatility on both ends of the floor.
Oubre saw the most extensive playing time of his three-year career in 2017-18, resulting in career-high production across the board. The 22-year-old averaged 11.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 27.5 minutes, all up from 6.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 0.7 steals across 20.3 minutes a year prior. Some of that can be attributed to John Wall missing 41 games and opening up more time in the rotation, but either way, it was a decent showing for the reserve wing. In addition to his increased production, Oubre took a step forward with his three-point shooting. He hit 1.6 deep balls at a 34.1 percent clip. While that may not be an overly efficient number, it was a night and day improvement compared to his 28.7 percent three-point shooting in 2016-17. Looking forward to the upcoming campaign, Oubre should reclaim his role as the top backup to Otto Porter at small forward. However, the Wizards did select wing Troy Brown in the draft and added Jeff Green during free agency, so Oubre will at least have some competition for reserve minutes. That likely keeps Oubre off the radar in anything but deeper leagues, though he should still have plenty of incentive to play well considering he's heading into the final year of his rookie deal and will be a restricted free agent next offseason.
Oubre, a 6-foot-7 wing out of Kansas, will be heading into his third NBA season during 2017-18. Though he’s largely stuck behind the likes of Otto Porter and Bradley Beal, Oubre still managed to see a significant workload last year, posting 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds across 20.3 minutes per game. He also shot 42.1 percent from the field and 54-of-188 (28.7 percent) from beyond the arc. While his spot in the rotation may make him irrelevant in the majority of year-long leagues, he’s a candidate to consider in both dynasty and daily formats (when he’s in line to see extended run), as he’s shown plenty of big-game upside at 21-years-old. Most notably, on Dec. 10 against the Bucks, Oubre recorded 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, one assist and no turnovers across 29 minutes.
Oubre has the look of an NBA player. The 6-7 swingman has excellent athleticism, and he could turn into a fine player given time. However, Oubre did not produce at Kansas like a first-round pick, but he had his moments. He had three 20-point games, including a season-high 25 points in the win over TCU in the Big 12 tournament. The native of New Orleans also had five games in which he did not score, and he fouled out in the loss to Wichita State in the NCAA tournament with just nine points. Over 36 games as a Jayhawk, Oubre averaged 9.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.4 blocks. He hit 44 percent of his field goals and 72 percent from the free-throw line. He converted 36 percent from the three-point line, so he has decent range on his jumper. Oubre may have showed signs of things to come with a 30-point game with six three-pointers in the Las Vegas Summer League, but he struggled leading up to that point. His rookie season will largely be a redshirt season for the 19-year-old because the team has Otto Porter, Jared Dudley, and Martell Webster on the wing.
