The Golden State Warriors have an important decision to make about Kelly Oubre Jr.’s future with the team. While the 25-year-old is set to enter free agency this summer, it also looks like the Dubs are going to have some competition if they really intend to offer Oubre an extension.
There are reports that several teams have already expressed interest in signing Obure during the offseason, including the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks (h / t Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports):
According to league sources, Miami, San Antonio and the New York Knicks are among the teams interested in Oubre in free agency, and it’s easy to see him at his best, fitting in these places.
We already reported earlier this week how the Knicks were linked with a swoop for Oubre. However, this recent development now throws the Heat and Spurs into the mix. The Knicks and the Heat (and maybe even the Spurs to some extent?) Oh, and he’s a really good basketball player too.
As for the Warriors, they could well be excluded from the race to sign Oubre. Golden State isn’t exactly the most flexible team when it comes to cap space, and depending on what Oubre demands in his new contract, it’s quite possible that he has already played his last game as a Warrior.
