A spotty season from Oubre in which he again did little offensively, then suddenly became a key scorer in the playoffs. Oubre’s length and mobility should make him a good defender - ‘should’ being a key word, as he has yet to perform like one yet due to lapses in his play, particularly off the ball - yet his offensive skill level is low.
