A deal with the Suns

Warriors acquire: No. 10 + Kelly Oubre Jr.

Suns acquire: No. 2

The Warriors have been involved in several rumors this offseason. Holiday, Aldridge and others are all part of the rumor mill that the Warriors have been. Another name that’s popped up is Phoenix’s Kelly Oubre Jr.

The best part about Oubre Jr. is there isn’t a need to include other assets as he would fall within the team’s $17.2 million trade exception. Oubre Jr. is coming off his best season in the NBA, averaging 18.7 points per game.

It was just his fifth season, and he’s been improving his scoring and shooting in each of them. At just 24, adding Oubre Jr. should be something the Warriors look into, and if this trade is a deal the Suns would take, it’s one the Warriors should agree to.

The Suns have Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton. Add a high-scoring player like Anthony Edwards, and you may have the all pieces in the franchise that it’d take to compete for a title. This seems like a win-win deal.
