Suns Kelly Oubre Jr. Wants to Stay Long-Term

Published

on

Phoenix Suns forward Kelly Oubre Jr. is slated to hit restricted free agency later this summer, but he prefers to stay in Phoenix for the long-term, hopeful that a long-term deal can be worked out.

Oubre was acquired from the Washington Wizards earlier this season as part of the Trevor Ariza trade.

“Why would I go anywhere else?” Oubre said, according to Kellan Olson of Arizona Sports. 

“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.”

The Suns continue to struggle and are lottery-bound, yet again, but Oubre sees improvement from the team.

“We’re learning from our mistakes that we’ve made in previous games and throughout the season and we’re starting to realize that we are definitely capable of competing with the best so we have to continue to go out there and prove that,” Oubre said. 

“We’re just trying to get some momentum going into next year.”

“I’m just so happy that Phoenix, (Suns general manager James Jones) made the call and traded for me to come to Phoenix man because that was the biggest blessing of my career so far,” Oubre said.

“One-hundred percent I would love to remain Phoenix.”
