    Oubre has an interesting skillset, but has bounced around several teams now. Supposedly BBIQ is part of it, but I'm wondering if there isn't something else? We could have a new Kelly O next year.

    Not that enamored with Oubre. Guess he fits the timeline better than Gordon and we have a positional need at SF assuming Tate is a natural PF? Would prefer picks to Oubre tho.

    Oubre for Eric has been my ideal trade since the draft. Nice to see that sources are aggregating my idea. I don’t see the Warriors taking on Gordon’s salary with that tax bill

    Hell No.

    Give us Buddy Hield instead.

    Edit: Nevermind, I just saw how much he makes.

    Probably because he's been inconsistent at both the 3 point and free throw line over the past few years for anyone to invest in serious $$ on him.

    Only thing Oubre has on Gordon is youth. Gordon is the much better player.

    I wish we were closer to the season so the reality that Wall and Gordon are going to be here hit. I wish we could trade them too but I want it get rid of them not trade them for more crap

    Oubre was easily attainable years ago, whose just been bouncing around from team to team. Well bc he isn't that good tbh. he never was. Now its the rockets would give EG for him. lol what a absolute joke. GS would commit robbery in a deal swapping the two

    Oubre doesn't really move the needle much on defense or offense. His stats are largely empty when compared to comparable players. But Gordon has also dropped off in the last couple of years, is older and more injury prone. We might come out ahead slightly in this trade scenario.

    Oubre lost a lot of shine last year after a slow shooting start, but was seen as a top up-and-coming 3 and D wing just barely a year ago. We could do much worse. Give us Phoenix Oubre and we are salivating for this to be part of our core. Good buy low candidate.

    If they give us a pick or some youth and take House, we have a deal.

    Oubre is not a good player, nobody wants him. Warriors always trying to trade him and nobody wants him. Also, Heild cost too much and does not play any defense.
