Default Wizards draft Kelly Oubre

Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced tonight that the team has acquired Kelly Oubre Jr. (the 15th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft) from Atlanta in exchange for Jerian Grant (the 19th overall selection) and second round picks in 2016 and 2019. The Wizards also selected Aaron White (49th overall) in tonight’s NBA Draft.

“Kelly is a very talented and athletic young player who can play and defend both the shooting guard and small forward positions,” said Grunfeld. “He has terrific upside and can come into a situation where he can take his time and learn from our veterans.”

Oubre Jr. (6-7, 200) averaged 9.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals while shooting .448 (104-232) from the field and .360 (32-89) from three-point range in his freshman year at Kansas. The New Orleans native was an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention choice and a finalist for the Wayman Tisdale Award, given to the National Freshman of the Year. Oubre Jr. was second on the Jayhawks in steals with 41 while leading Kansas in steals 11 times last season. He recorded three games of 20+ points and tallied three double-doubles during the 2014-15 campaign.
