2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

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).

College/International Summary

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.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Oubre began the 2018-19 season with the Washington Wizards before being traded to the Phoenix Suns on Dec. 15. The Kansas product started a career-high 19 games on the year, 12 of which came after he joined the Suns. Oubre's scoring average (16.9 ppg) in Phoenix was a career-best for the 6-foot-7 small forward. He also saw 29.5 minutes per game with the Suns, a higher mark than he ever saw as a member of the Wizards. After some time to settle into his new surroundings, Oubre averaged 21.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in nine games in March. He scored a season-high 32 points versus the Pelicans on March 16. That was unfortunately his final outing of the year, however, as his season was cut short due to a thumb injury that ended up requiring minor surgery. That last outstanding effort marked one of 50 times Oubre reached double figures in 2018-19. Helping contribute to that was 108 made three-pointers in 2018-19, which now makes it back-to-back seasons with 100-plus made threes for Oubre. He shot 32.0 percent from beyond the arc -- the second-best mark of his four-year NBA career.

2017

Buoyed by a significant increase in playing time (27.5 minutes per night), Oubre took the major step forward the Wizards had been hoping for during the 2017-18 season. The former No. 15 overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft played in 81 of Washington's 82 contests, including each of their six playoff games. Offensively, Oubre set new career-highs across the board, as he posted career-high marks in points (11.8), rebounds (4.5) and assists (1.2) per game. One of the main reasons for Oubre's scoring production was his improved three-point shot -- he nailed 34.1 percent of his tries from deep after connecting on just 28.7 percent during the 2016-17 season. Oubre also shot a career-best 82.0 percent from the charity stripe. Defensively, he averaged 1.0 steal per contest. He swiped three or more steals on six different occasions, including a career-best five steals in a win over Portland on December 5.

2016

Prior to his second NBA season, Oubre again showed signs of potential while leading the Wizards in scoring (19.2 ppg) and rebounding (5.6 rpg) through five summer league games. While Otto Porter beat him out for the starting small forward job, Oubre remained one of Washington's key contributors off the bench. He recorded his first career double-double Nov. 28 in a win over Sacramento, scoring 10 points and corralling 11 rebounds. Less than two weeks later, Oubre set a new career high with 19 points in a Dec. 10 victory over the Bucks. When it was all said and done, Oubre averaged 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds across 20.3 minutes over 79 games (five starts). He was most productive over the final stretch of the season, averaging 11.4 points and 4.9 rebounds across 27.9 minutes in the last 10 games. He reached double figures eight times over that span. Oubre and the Wizards finished fourth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 49-33. They got past the Hawks in the first round with Oubre averaging 5.2 points over six games but were eliminated by the Celtics in seven games in Round 2. Oubre averaged 6.5 points in the series against Boston but didn't score in Game 6 or 7. He battled through a knee injury, which ultimately required PRP injections in the offseason.

2015

After one season at Kansas, Oubre was selected 15th overall by the Washington Wizards in the 2015 NBA Draft. He logged six games for the Wizards in Summer League play and battled an ankle injury in the preseason, but he was ready for his NBA debut Oct. 30. While Oubre didn't record a stat in just one minute on the floor in that contest, he was more active in his next appearance Nov. 6. In a loss to the Celtics, Oubre scored seven points to go along with two rebounds and two assists in 14 minutes. He continued in a similar role until Dec. 16, when he had the best scoring game of his rookie season with 18 points (6-15 FG) against the Spurs. The very next game (Dec. 19), Oubre made his first career start in favor of Otto Porter, who was battling a thigh injury. Oubre ended up starting nine times in 17 games in the ensuing stretch, averaging 5.3 points and 3.7 rebounds over that span. His playing time waned afterwards as Porter got healthy, and Oubre finished the year averaging 3.7 points across 10.7 minutes while appearing in 63 total games. Nonetheless, he showed plenty of potential as a long-term "3 and D" player. Oubre's Wizards narrowly missed the playoffs with a 41-41 record, finishing 10th in the Eastern Conference.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
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.
