   2017 NBA Manifesto

Kelly Oubre
SF, 6’7, 205lbs, 21 years old, 2 years of experience

A spotty season from Oubre in which he again did little offensively, then suddenly became a key scorer in the playoffs. Oubre’s length and mobility should make him a good defender - ‘should’ being a key word, as he has yet to perform like one yet due to lapses in his play, particularly off the ball - yet his offensive skill level is low. He shoots poorly from outside (32.7% on jump shots, including two-pointers), cannot take a contested dribble, has no off hand, and misses layups when contested. Needs a lot of skill development and to start becoming reliable so as to not become the next Wesley Johnson.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Has a lot to prove, but has shown enough defensively to keep around.

There is a marked inconsistency about Oubre. His offensive game is scrappy and unrefined, and while some nights he bounces around finishing plays, some days he will throw up a goose egg. Increasingly, however, he is making small developments in his offensive game, as evidenced by the 12.0 points per game he is averaging this year, alongside 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks. With Markieff Morris still out, Oubre, who has averaged 36 minutes per game thus far this season, should get another big minute haul tonight.

Even more inconsistent than Green is Oubre. Yet he was brilliant last time out, with 21 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal, and has scored less than 9 points only once all season. The price does not reflect his improvements, hence he is good value.
