Kelly Oubre: ‘Why would I go anywhere else’ in Free Agency

Phoenix Suns wing Kelly Oubre Jr. has quickly become a fan favorite since being acquired in a December trade with the Washington Wizards.

With that being said, Oubre’s long-term future in Phoenix is a bit unknown. He’s a restricted free agent this upcoming offseason, and while that means the Suns can match any offer, they traded for Oubre in one-of-a-kind circumstances after a three-team deal fell apart on a roster crowded with wings.

“Why would I go anywhere else?” Oubre said when asked if Phoenix was his preferred destination across the entire NBA. “I’m here, I’m getting established and I’m not a guy that really wants to be on a million teams in my tenure in the league and I just want to create a dynasty and a legacy here in Phoenix with [Deandre Ayton], [Devin Booker], [Mikal Bridges], all the guys in the locker room. It’s beautiful.”
