On his way out of Arizona, he threw some shade at Suns owner Robert Sarver.
“You just hit the nail on the head,” Oubre said, during an appearance on “Damon, Ratto and Kolsky,” on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. “I can play for an owner — somebody who actually cares about the organization and not just the perception of the organization on the media end of it. It’s all about the foundation for me, man. You have a beautiful foundation, can build a beautiful [future].”
Oubre, 24, was originally a first-round draft pick by the Atlanta Hawks in 2015.
Over the last few years, he has developed into a capable defender, strong finisher and decent 3-point shooter.
In contrast to Sarver’s much-criticized manner of running the Suns, owner Joe Lacob has pushed the right buttons over the last several years for his Warriors.
Even without Thompson, the team will likely still contend for a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
