Kelly Oubre Jr.

The Philadelphia 76ers getting Kelly Oubre Jr. on a minimum last off-season was an absolute steal, as he was one of their best players. After his impressive 2023-24 season, he's likely due for a raise, and the 76ers would love to keep him, but if, for whatever reason, that does not work, the Bucks should be all over him.

This particular writer has been high on Kelly Oubre Jr. for a long time for plenty of reasons. He's an uber-athletic 6-foot-7 wing who can defend almost anyone on the floor. With his height and length, he'd give the Bucks plenty of versatile lineup combinations, especially when they go to their smaller lineups situationally.

Offensively, he's not a great 3-point shooter - 32.7 percent for his career - but he's still got the tools to make an impact on that end, averaging 15.4 points per game this past season. He could give the Bucks another needed complementary scorer, something this roster lacks outside of Bobby Portis. Oubre is a legitimate two-way threat.

After playing on a cheap deal this season, one would not fault Oubre if cashing out was high on his priorities list this off-season. However, many expected him to earn a raise last off-season, and he ultimately settled for the minimum. If there's any shot he does the same this off-season, he needs to be a primary target for the Milwaukee Bucks.
