Kelly Oubre Jr. finds himself in an interesting spot right now heading into the offseason. 

At 25 years old, Oubre is an unrestricted free agent for the first time. After one season with the Warriors, does he want to find a new home or remain in San Francisco?

"I'm a Warrior right now," Oubre said to Chris Haynes on the latest Posted Up podcast. "So, until further notice. We'll weigh our options whenever the time kicks in, the free-agency period ramps up. But at the end of the day, man, I'm a Warrior right now.

"That's all I know."

Oubre's averages dropped across the board his first season in Steve Kerr's Golden State offense. He averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists while playing 30.7 minutes per game. The lefty also shot just 31.6 percent from 3-point range and his season ended early due to a wrist injury. 

Oubre should have a solid list of suitors in free agency. The Warriors also own Oubre's Bird Rights, and he could possibly be used as a sign-and-trade option.

In other moments talking with Haynes on the podcast, Oubre showed displeasure with Kerr's comments on possibly becoming a bench player next season. He also said he's looking for a long-term contract. 

Oubre said to Haynes if there's one thing he wants teams to know, it's "that I can't be put in a box."
