Now, you’re going to decide your future as a free agent. What are you looking for in free agency? Kelly Oubre: I’m really just looking to make the best decision with my team and my family, that’s best for us. Obviously, I want to be a leader, and I want to continue to expand my game, grow and spread my wings. I want to continue to show all the things I’m capable of and not be put in a box. I felt like the universe was trying to put me in a box last year. It’s something that always clashes because it’s a big deal whenever I’m trying to be put in a box because I can’t be put in a box. I’m to continue to show you and prove to you why you shouldn’t put me in a box. I think that just fueled me to work harder this summer and to come back next year and be a better all-around player. As far as the business side, I can’t control that.
Kelly Oubre: “I’m just looking for [a team that plays] defense, hard-nosed defense, scrappy, fast-paced, athletic open-floor offense. That’s what I thrive in. Kind of just getting after it, man. Just having a team full of hard-nosed dog individuals. That’s ideal. But at the end of the day, I’ll adapt to any situation I’ve been in because that’s just what I do. I’m very versatile in that way.”
Yet this is the time of year for the front office to go shopping with its cap space. It’s known Thibodeau has a yen for former Raptors/Blazers shooting guard Norman Powell, who as expected opted out of his contract. He’ll be seeking a deal close to $20 million per — as will another wing on the Knicks radar, Kelly Oubre.

Kelly Oubre: The whole world knows what I'm capable of, allow me to show it

Shams Charania: Warriors free agent Kelly Oubre Jr. sits down with @Stadium: “I can’t sit here and focus on the things that go on with the suit and ties. I have to lock in on the court. I think the whole world knows what I’m capable of…allow me to show.” On learning from Steph/Draymond, more: pic.twitter.com/G00iDt82tl

Kelly Oubre offers the same path for Golden State. And the list of interested parties for both players seems to keep growing, with Dallas, New York and Miami among the teams being mentioned for each talent. New York’s surplus of cap space (at least $50 million in room) makes it unlikely the Knicks would send out any assets back to their crosstown foe, and Dallas would need to cobble together several contracts to match the expected $16-22 million salary range front office figures project for Dinwiddie and Oubre.
