No deal for Kelly Oubre?

The NBA has an important deadline coming up that affects the Wizards and their future with former first round pick Kelly Oubre Jr. Oct. 15 is the last day teams can reach rookie scale contract extensions and Oubre, who is entering his fourth season, is eligible for one. However, it does not appear likely a deal between the two sides will get done, according to multiple people familiar with the situation.

Royce White: This season the world saw three very good NBA players (Kevin Love, Demar Derozan & Kelly Oubre) make global headlines. These men BRAVELY disclosed their own mental health struggles with the public. However, they were not the first and MORE IMPORTANTLY they won’t be the last. Recent studies have shown that athletes may be even more predisposed to mental health struggles than other citizens. …. The most notable case of a completely PROACTIVE approach in the NBA may certainly be my own. Sadly when I challenged policy and advocated for my own health, people within my own support system feared the peripheral effects of my public castigation. They worried many players wouldn’t discuss their plights going forward due to the condemnation that was crystallizing around my story. Although I didn’t want to believe it, they were somewhat right. Over the past 5-6 years I’ve been contacted by hundreds of players that have expressed many of their various mental health afflictions. Unfortunately many of them have also expressed an apprehension to share those afflictions with their team or the public.
