In an expected move, the Washington Wizards have exercised the $3.2 million option on Kelly Oubre Jr.’s contract, ensuring that he will return to the team for a fourth season in 2018-19. Oubre, 21, has a unique standing in the locker room as the team’s only first-round draft pick since 2015. The Wizards acquired Oubre, who was selected 15th overall by the Atlanta Hawks, as part of a three-team draft-day trade. Since having a pedestrian rookie year under then-head coach Randy Wittman, Oubre has since developed into a member of the team’s cherished core.
