Report: Warriors listening to lots of potential Oubre offers

When the Warriors play at the Kings on Thursday night, will Kelly Oubre still be a member of the franchise?

That is one of the main questions across the NBA as the trade deadline -- Thursday at noon PT -- fast approaches.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported Sunday that the Warriors are "shopping" Oubre.

ESPN's Zach Lowe, citing league sources, used different language Monday morning.

"The Warriors are listening to lots of potential offers on Oubre," Lowe writes. "They don't seem to feel much urgency to move Oubre.

"On the flip side, Golden State seems to be taking a pretty honest view of what this particular roster can do this season -- and might be willing to move Oubre for something that helps it in the future."

So it sounds like the Warriors are canvassing the market and seeing who they might be able to acquire in exchange for Oubre, while also receiving a good amount of interest in the 25-year-old wing.

The No. 15 overall pick from the 2015 draft sprained his left wrist during practice on March 2, and is shooting 16 percent (4-for-25) from beyond the arc over the last six games.

Oubre shot better than 43 percent from 3-point range over his prior 14 appearances.

If the Warriors do not part ways with the 6-foot-7 lefty this week, it's safe to assume they will make re-signing him this summer in free agency a top priority.

 

"I would love to stick around," Oubre told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke last week. "I'm trying to make a home somewhere, grow in life. And I think [after] getting acclimated more and more here every day, this is a great place to do that.

"Everything happens for a reason in this life, and I'm here right now. I would love the opportunity to just play, and be comfortable here and continue to grow relationships with people in this organization."
