The Knicks had shown interest in Kelly Oubre a few years ago when he was a free agent. As his stint with the Charlotte Bobcats likely comes to a close, he could be back on the Knicks’ radar.
Oubre, averaging 20.3 points last season over 48 games and a . 431 field goal percentage, has proven his worth. However, his three-point shooting could be a sticking point if the Knicks go for better spacing and perimeter shooting.
Oubre’s average three-point hit rate is . 330 and his effective field goal rate is . 497. With 5.2 total rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, he offers a reasonable package. While Oubre may not be the perfect fit, his availability as a free agent expands the Knicks’ pick pool.
