Philly’s depth chart is at present uncertain due to the feasible addition of James Harden, who is seeking to leave his existing group. In light of this, the 76ers have decided to sign Kelly Oubre to a a single-year deal. The choice was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and later confirmed by Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia. The deal will be for the veteran minimum, generating it a low-threat move for Philly. Oubre, a 6’7″ wing, was the major cost-free agent accessible, identified for his potential to typical 20.three points and five.two rebounds per game final season with Charlotte. Even though he has places of his game that want improvement, such as three-point shooting, general efficiency, passing and defense, Oubre nevertheless has a part to play in the league and with the Sixers. This signing provides him an chance to showcase his expertise and potentially safe future contracts.
Just before adding Oubre, the 76ers planned to have Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris start out on the wing, with D’Anthony Melton, Danuel Home Jr., Furkan Korkmaz and Danny Green as backups (with Green’s contract not assured). Oubre will now aim to establish himself in this group, but the complete lineup could undergo alterations if Harden effectively leaves his existing group.
