Suns extend qualifying offer to Oubre Jr.

Suns small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. came on strong after a trade from the Wizards.

The Phoenix Suns have extended a qualifying offer to small forward Kelly Oubre Jr., according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Oubre Jr., 23, was acquired last season in a trade with the Washington Wizards. He will be a restricted free agent, meaning the Suns can match any offer he receives from another team.

“Oubre is a target for significant offer sheets in the market, especially with cap space teams who miss out on high-profile unrestricted free agents,” Wojnarowski reported.

Oubre averaged 15.2 points and 4.7 rebounds in 69 total games this past season.
