The Phoenix Suns and forward Kelly Oubre, a restricted free agent, have agreed to terms on a two-year, $30 million deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to The Athletic’s Michael Scotto, Oubre’s new deal is fully guaranteed with no options.

Oubre, 23, inked a new contract that has a descending structure, with a $15.7 million first-year salary, according to Arizona Sports 98.7’s John Gambadoro.

Oubre shined following a trade that sent him from the Washington Wizards to the Suns last season, and in 40 games with Phoenix, including 12 starts, Oubre was averaging 16.9 PPG, 4.9 RPG, and 1.4 SPG, all career numbers, prior to a thumb injury that sidelined him.

Oubre and the Suns may work out a longer-term deal in the future, but this current deal keeps him in Phoenix for the next two years and allows Oubre the potential to hit unrestricted free agency at the age of 25.
