Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey announced that the team has signed Kelly Oubre Jr.
The eight-year pro joins Philadelphia after averaging a career-high 20.3 points (43.1% FG, 31.9% 3FG), 5.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 48 games (40 starts) with Charlotte last season.
He logged five games with at least five made three-pointers, the second-most of any season in his NBA career (12, 2021-22).
A New Orleans native, Oubre Jr. swiped a career-best 1.4 steals in 2022-23, aided in part by a career-high six steals at Orlando on Nov. 14.
In 527 career NBA games across eight seasons with Washington, Phoenix, Golden State, and Charlotte, Oubre Jr. has averaged 12.8 points on 43.4% shooting (33.0% 3FG), 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 assist, and 1.0 steal.
He has produced at least 15.0 points in each of his last five seasons dating back to 2018-19, while tallying back-to-back seasons with at least 100 three-pointers and 50 steals.
Originally selected by Atlanta with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Oubre Jr. played one collegiate season at Kansas.
There, he helped lead the Jayhawks to a 27-9 regular season record and a No. 2 seed in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
He was named to the Big 12 All-Newcomer team as he scored in double figures 15 times, including a 25-point outing against TCU.
Oubre Jr. will wear No. 9 for the 76ers.
