Kelly Oubre Jr. found a new team.
ESPN reported on the 19th (Korean time) that free agent Kelly Oubre Jr., who played for Charlotte, is transferring to the Philadelphia 76ers.안전놀이터
Her contract period is for one year, and it is said that they succeeded in retaining Oubre for a fairly low price.
Oubre is an offensive guard with good offensive ability and recorded 20.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in the 2022-2023 regular season. He led the Charlotte guard, starting 40 of 48 games.
With the addition of Oubre Jr., Philadelphia succeeded in reducing not only its bench offense but also the risk of James Harden leaving. As the amount and size of the contract are not large, it is expected to be a low-risk, high-return recruitment.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia is disappointing fans by performing below expectations in the playoffs every season. This off-season, they are looking for change by suddenly firing coach Doc Rivers and appointing coach Nick Nurse.
In this situation, they are aiming for a new trend with the recruitment of Oubre Jr. A bench scorer who scores an average of 20 points can be of great help.
