Free agent G/F Kelly Oubre Jr. is reportedly on the verge of signing a one-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wajnarowski.
This move comes with the promise of significant playing time for Oubre in light of the uncertainty surrounding James Harden’s status with the team.
Oubre, at 27 years old, had previously been on the radar of the Miami Heat. However, recent developments in the Damian Lillard trade saga seem to have influenced his decision to join the 76ers.

Last season, Oubre showcased his abilities with the Charlotte Hornets, averaging an impressive 20.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists while maintaining a solid 43.1% field goal percentage.
With Oubre now on board, the Philadelphia 76ers are undoubtedly eyeing progress and success in the upcoming NBA season.
This move adds depth and versatility to their roster, setting the stage for an exciting year ahead for both the team and their fans.
