    Ugh. Only 2 years.

    I guess that is better than 1

    I said earlier if we had an off-season that included Rubio and Oubre, I’d be a happy dude all things considered. I’m pretty happy tonight.

    Seems like a compromise to me. He’s taking some security and also betting on himself in 2 years. Can’t blame the guy honestly.

    Somewhat restores my faith in the organization after the debacle that occurred a few weeks ago, with the selection of college players..... Go Suns.

    I was hoping for another year, but I'll take a two-year deal.

    Do we lose Bird rights by signing him for only 2 years, or do we keep Bird rights based on tacking on to his previous contract?

    If the latter, this is a good deal for both sides and sets each side up for the 2021 free agent bonanza, with the option for Oubre to re-sign again.

    If the former, Oubre is definitely gone in 2 years, and the Suns have effectively lost half of their core (3/5, if you think Josh Jackson was salvageable) this offseason.

    Either way, this is technically Oubre remaining a Sun, at least for now, so I will now honor my word and begin my 3 month hiatus from posting.

    Yeah this is kinda getting the best of both worlds for Oubre. Gets $30M instead of $4M QO, so not a terrible gamble if he gets hurt, and he gets to renegotiate again in short time. His only downside is he has to wait 2 years for what he believes will be his big payday.

    Suns get reasonable contract but no long term certainty of price concession.

    Sounds like he wanted more than 15 million a year and settled for the 2 year to get to free agency sooner.

    He’s betting on getting a big payday in 2 years so he won’t be slacking off.

    Exactly. I don’t doubt he’ll work his butt off to get that payday. I always thought he had a good motor anyway and seemed to put in the effort every game.

    Yup. Now he’s kinda in a two-year “contract year” so we should get him
    busting his rump for two years. That’s a good thing.
