Oubre agreed to a two-year, $30 million contract with the Suns on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
As a restricted free agent, Oubre was always expected to land back in Phoenix, but it's unclear just how much interest was out there for the swingman on the open market. Regardless, Oubre will get a lucrative two-year deal for the Suns after appearing in 40 games for the team last season and averaging 16.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. He is expected to play a big role for the team in the upcoming season as the likely starter at small forward.
Oubre was extended a qualifying offer by the Suns on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The decision to make Oubre a restricted free agent doesn't come as much of a surprise, though it remains to be seen if Phoenix will retain the Kansas product, who's expected to receive significant interest on the open market. After beginning his career in Washington, Oubre was traded to Phoenix last season, where he appeared in 40 games and averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks per contest.
Oubre will undergo a minor procedure on his left thumb and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He'll require 4-to-6 weeks of recovery time.
This is a disappointing end to what was in many ways a breakthrough season for Oubre, who saw his production skyrocket after being traded to Phoenix in December. Over 40 games with the Suns, he averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.7 triples, 1.4 steals and 1.0 block across 29.5 minutes per contest while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. His absence for the final few weeks should open up more run for Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson.
Oubre (thumb) will not play in Thursday's game against the Pistons, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
After being listed as doubtful, Oubre will be sidelined for the second straight game with a sprained right thumb. Mikal Bridges is expected to get the start on the wing once again in Oubre's absence Thursday, with Josh Jackson filling in off the bench.
Oubre (thumb) is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against Detroit, Duane Rankin of AZCentral.com reports.
Oubre is still battling a sprained right thumb, which also kept him out of Monday's game against the Bulls. If he does, in fact, miss another contest, Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson would stand to benefit.
Oubre (thumb) will be inactive for Monday's game against Chicago, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Originally listed as questionable heading into Monday with a sprained left thumb, Oubre will be sidelined versus the Bulls in order to get his thumb healthy again. In Oubre's absence Monday, and although it's unknown at the moment, Mikal Bridges or Josh Jackson will likely garner a spot start with both of them chipping in more minutes than usual.
Oubre is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Chicago due to a left thumb sprain, Even Sidery of The Bright Side reports.
It's unknown when exactly Oubre suffered a sprained left thumb, as he seemed just fine during his season-high 32 points in 43 minutes of action Saturday against the Pelicans. It would be a big blow for the Suns if Oubre is ultimately held out Monday; the Kansas product is averaging an outstanding 25.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists over his last 10 outings.
Oubre finished with 32 points (12-25 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 43 minutes in the Suns' win over the Pelicans on Saturday.
Oubre continued his productive run with another big game in Saturday's win. In his new role in the starting lineup, Oubre has averaged 19.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 1,5 assists and 1.0 blocks over his last 11 games, proving himself to be an elite fantasy option right now.
Oubre offered 22 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five steals, four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 36 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Rockets.
Oubre matched his career high in steals while also providing an efficient offensive performance. He has scored at least 20 points 11 times through 39 appearances with the Suns, including 10 of the last 29 games. The 23-year-old forward seems to be closing in on a big payday this summer, as he is finally delivering on the promise he displayed during his tenure with the Wizards.
Oubre ended with 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 114-97 loss to Utah.
Oubre remained relatively solid Wednesday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting. He has been a consistent top-50 player over the past month, a much-improved effort when compared to his time in Washington. Granted he has been given a larger role, but he has taken full advantage and will certainly be rostered on a number of winning fantasy teams this season.
Oubre supplied 22 points (9-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt) five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 33 minutes in the Suns' 115-111 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Oubre's production perfectly complemented the team-leading exploits of Devin Booker, as the former put together his best shooting night since Feb. 4. Oubre has now shot at least 50.0 percent in three of the first six games of March, and he continues to serve as a steady contributor in rebounds, steals and blocks. The talented wing has at least one rejection in five straight contests and has recorded at least one steal in nine consecutive games, with the former streak helping lead to a career-high average of 1.3 thefts per contest during his 37 games (nine starts) with the Suns.
Oubre managed 17 points (6-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 127-120 loss to Portland.
Oubre continues to play well for his new team, putting up numbers across the board in the seven-point loss. He has been a revelation since joining the Suns and was recently quoted as saying he would like to remain with the team for the rest of his career. Owners who managed to snap him up off waivers when he was traded have to be thrilled with his production and he may go a long way to helping win a number of fantasy leagues this season.
Oubre accumulated 27 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 12-17 FT), 13 rebounds , three blocks, an assist and a steal in 32 minutes Monday against Milwaukee.
Oubre dominated the Bucks, scoring his second-most points of the season while grabbing a season-high 13 boards. He's thrived in an expanded role in Phoenix, and is averaging 18.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.6 assists in his six starts for the Suns. Oubre would be a worthy pickup if available in any format as he's receiving a much heavier workload than he was in Washington and has managed to translate the added opportunity to more consistent production in points, rebounds and steals.
Oubre finished with 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 118-109 victory over the Lakers.
Oubre continues to flourish with his new team, contributing across the board in another well-rounded performance. He has been a top-80 player over the past month, much-improved from his time with the Wizards. Oubre has been especially impressive on the defensive end of the floor, averaging 2.2 steals and 0.6 blocks over that period.
Oubre accumulated 19 points (8-22 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, four steals, and two assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 130-116 loss to the Pelicans.
Oubre was inefficient but poured in counting stats galore. He has reached double figures in scoring in 21 of the last 22 games, and Oubre also matched his season high in steals in this one. He'll try to keep it rolling during Saturday's matchup with the Lakers.
Oubre totaled 23 points (8-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, three steals, two blocks and an assist over 41 minutes in the Suns' loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday.
Oubre put out another productive all-around line in Thursday's loss while starting his first game as a Sun and playing a season-high 41 minutes. Oubre has been a valuable contributor since arriving in Phoenix and over 28 games as a Sun, he's averaging 15.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 blocks over 28.0 minutes per game. Even more productive games could be on tap if he continues to find himself in the starting five.
Oubre is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Cleveland, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Oubre is slated to make his first start since being traded to the Suns, and as a result, Mikal Bridges will shift to a bench role. In Oubre's previous five contests as a role player, he's averaging 19.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals, so Phoenix evidently believes he's deserving of a chance to start.
Oubre posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes in the Suns' 134-107 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.
In what was yet another disappointing loss for the Suns, Oubre stepped up with a momentous individual feat. The young wing's scoring tally was the best of his career and served as his third effort of more than 20 points in the last five games. Oubre has proven capable of offering even more of a spark off the bench than he did in his Wizards days thus far in his new Phoenix digs, and he continues to offer strong complementary production in rebounds, assists and steals as well. Factoring in Wednesday's production, Oubre is averaging 18.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals across six February games as his squad heads into the All-Star break.
Oubre put up a team-high 25 points (9-19 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT) to go with 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 34 minutes Friday in the Suns' 117-107 loss to the Warriors.
The Suns' addition of Tyler Johnson to the second unit didn't prevent Oubre from turning in another solid scoring outing off the bench. It was the fifth time in 16 games in which Oubre has popped for 20 points, and the swingman has accentuated his fantasy profile by averaging more than one steal and one block during that span. The impending returns of Devin Booker (hamstring) and T.J. Warren (ankle) will probably hurt him a bit, but Oubre is worth holding in most formats while he continues to turn in quality numbers night in and night out.
Oubre amassed 23 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, three steals, two assists, and one block in 36 minutes during Monday's 118-110 loss to the Rockets.
Oubre was awesome, enjoying an extremely efficient scoring performance while contributing in every category. He has reached double figures in scoring in 14 straight games while swiping seven steals across the last two tilts, and Oubre continues to thrive as the team's sixth man. After scoring in single digits in six of the first 10 games with the Suns, the change of scenery seems to have unlocked the consistency that always evaded him during his previous tenure with the Wizards.
