2. Kelly Oubre Jr.

Another player that could rejoin the team is Kelly Oubre Jr. Oubre currently plays for the Philadelphia 76ers and has been a solid contributor for the team this season. He has averaged 15.4 points, 5 rebounds and is shooting 44% shooting.

The shooting guard played for the Suns for two seasons and averaged around 17 points per game for the team during the period of 2018-2020. Oubre played 96 regular season games for Phoenix and was a solid contributor. After this season, Oubre becomes a free agent and would fit Phoenix well.

He can defend and create his own offense, making him the perfect back up for Kevin Durant or he could slide in alongside the starters to fill the small forward role instead of Grayson Allen. The team could choose to alternate between Oubre and Allen, or the team might move on from Grayson Allen while his value is high due to having a career best season.

While Oubre could fill a number of different roles for the team, whether as a starter or coming off the bench, having him on the team would give the Suns a boost to the depth in their roster and allow for a number of different line ups. It would also grant them a great two-way player on a team friendly contract.
