VETERAN Kelly Oubre Jr. is signing with a new NBA team before the start of the season.
Oubre, 27, averaged over 20 points per game last season with the Charlotte Hornets and is now headed to a contender.
The small forward is staying in the Eastern Conference and is signing with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The former No. 15 overall pick in 2015 has bounced around the NBA but hit his groove last season, averaging the most points in his career (20.3).
ESPN’s NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Oubre “could get significant opportunity on the wing with the uncertainty around James Harden.”
With Harden’s 76ers career in doubt, Oubre could be in line for a massive opportunity.
Philadelphia especially has a lack of depth at the small forward position and was in need of wings.
The only other players that should split minutes with Oubre at the position are NBA champion Danny Green and Danuel House Jr.
Green, 36, and House, 30, are both significantly older and nowhere near as threatening scorers as Oubre, too.
On Instagram from an unrelated week-old’s post, fans are already welcoming and congratulating him to the City of Brotherly Love.
One wrote: “Welcome to Philly,” followed by the fire emoji.
A second said: “Welcome,” with the wave emoji that Oubre frequently uses.
Another posted: “Welcome to Philly, time to ball out.”
With a fourth adding: “Welcome to Philly gang.”
The 76ers are Oubre’s fifth team in the league.
He’s previously played for the Washington Wizards, Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, and the Hornets.
By signing in September, Oubre will be eligible for 76ers training camp.
NBA training camp officially opens for all teams on October 3.
