Oubre has top free-agency priority, on 'same page' as Warriors

Kelly Oubre will hit the open market when NBA free agency begins Aug. 2.

So what is the No. 1 priority for the 25-year-old?

Oubre's agent, Torrel Harris, told Wes Goldberg of the Bay Area News Group that suiting up for a title contender like the Warriors is at the top of the list.

"Winning is everything for Kelly," Harris said. "They [the Warriors] want him back. We are on the same page."

It's unclear exactly what being "on the same page" means, and very much is open for interpretation.

Harris' comments to Goldberg come shortly after Oubre created headlines with his answers to some questions from Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes on the Posted Up podcast.

When asked if re-signing with the Warriors is an option, the 6-foot-7 forward didn't sound too keen for a reunion.

"I'm a Warrior right now, so until further notice ... we'll weigh our options whenever the time kicks in [and] the free agency period ramps up," Oubre said. "At the end of the day, I'm a Warrior right now. That's all I know."

Oubre -- who missed Golden State's final 10 regular-season games plus the two play-in tournament losses because of a wrist injury -- averaged 17.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals over his final 34 appearances (29 starts). 

 

He shot 47.2 percent overall and 36.5 percent from deep over that span.
