Lakers, Nets, Clippers, Blazers, others made offer to Kelly Oubre Jr.

Earlier this week, Kelly Oubre Jr. came to an agreement on a two-year, $25 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets. When the news broke, Oubre was widely regarded as the top free agent remaining on the market.

Prior to joining the Hornets, Oubre received offers from quite a few teams.

According to Oubre's agent, Torrel Harris of Unique Sports International Management, the following teams made an offer to Oubre: the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, Brooklyn Nets, Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Teams like the Lakers and Nets were hoping that Oubre would take less in favor of the opportunity to compete for a championship and get a ton of national exposure. However, the 25-year-old decided to take the larger salary and join an up-and-coming Hornets team. Oubre has earned $39,228,550 over the course of his six-year NBA career. 

Oubre is coming off a down year with the Golden State Warriors in which he averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and a steal while shooting 43.9% from the field, 31.6% from three and 69.5% from the free-throw line.

However, the prior season, he had a career-year with the Phoenix Suns, averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 threes, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks while shooting 45.2% from the field, 35.2% from three and 78.0% from the free throw line.

Now, he'll look to have a strong bounce-back season alongside LaMelo Ball and Co. in Charlotte.
