Could Kelly Oubre Jr Do Wonders for the Los Angeles Lakers?


Kelly Oubre Jr. is looking like the odd man in the club’s payroll as another free agent Hornet’s forward, P.J. Washington signed a fresh three-year contract projected at $48 million or more.



Los Angeles Lakers boast two open sports on their standard 15 man roster. However, rumor has it that Lakers is hoping to sign an experienced big man to one of those openings while keeping other vacancies open heading into the 2023-2024 season.

According to Sports Illustrated, could the Los Angeles Lakers opt to turn from their plan and add a 27 year old Kelly Oubre Jr, that is in his prime who, may not have a knockdown ling-range shooting, is a credible two-way threat capable of feasting from midrange and paint?

Across 48 games last year, Kelly Oubre Jr. has averaged 20.3 points on .431 / .319 / .760 shooting splits, 5.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.1 assists. Charlotte Hornets was the 14th seed in the East with 27-55 record, so Kelly Oubre Jr with the Los Angeles Lakers would take major step back.

The fact that Kelly Oubre Jr. was prolific, even on a bad team, remains intriguing, as well as his athletecism and size.

Kelly Oubre Jr is well worth a look, especially if Kelly Oubre Jr’s market has collapsed significantly that he is looking like a possible veteran’s minimum signing.

Kelly Oubre Jr could spell Lakers All-Star LeBron James at small forward. Or the probable starter Rui Hachimura. What Kelly Oubre Jr lacks in consistent three-point shooting, Kelly Oubre Jr makes up for scoring and defense.
