Though he has yet to confirm his retirement, Steve Nash is under no delusions when it comes to the fact that his NBA career is at its end.

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.
