Kelly Oubre Jr.’s value to Phoenix isn’t in question.
He’s not only the team’s best and most explosive athlete and one of their top players, Oubre provides energy and enthusiasm. Whether he’s playing or not, Oubre gets the team going.
Those same qualities are why he’s constantly mentioned in trade rumors, too.
Oubre was traded on draft day in 2015. Phoenix received him in a trade with Washington.
His name surfaced right before last season’s trade deadline.
With a year remaining on Oubre’s contract, the Suns could risk losing him for nothing as he’ll be an unrestricted free agent after next season.
