Could the Chicago Bulls poach Kelly Oubre away from the 76ers in free agency this summer?

Could the Chicago Bulls poach veteran wing Kelly Oubre, Jr. away from the Philadelphia 76ers in free agency this summer? Having become something of a journeyman — if a fairly good one — in this latest stage of his career, it is certainly not out of the question, and such is the thinking of Bleacher Report’s Andy Bailey.

“In the event the Bulls aren’t able to move Zach LaVine and tip off a rebuild this summer, Kelly Oubre, Jr. is the kind of multipositional wing who could help them continue to compete for play-in berths,” writes the Athletic NBA analyst of the possibility of landing the Kansas alum this offseason.

“His 3-point shooting still leaves something to be desired, but Oubre’s slashing and competitiveness could be a boost to Chicago’s depth,” he adds.

We don’t think it is out of the question that the former No. 15 pick might see the substantial role he’d have with the Bulls and want to sign with Chicago.

But to make it happen, the team needs a strong finish and other supporting cast that would make sense on a team with postseason designs. Which they would be, clearly, if they were trying to bring on a player of Oubre’s caliber.
