Kelly Oubre Jr. has been traded to the Suns with Austin Rivers in exchange for Trevor Ariza.
Oubre’s role with the Suns is unclear but our guess is that he will backup T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson at the two forward spots. His minutes could stay near what they were in Washington (26.0 per game) so he should be a hold for now. Ariza wasn’t going to stick around after this season so the Suns go with the much-younger Oubre to perhaps see if they can unlock some more potential.
