The Oklahoma City Thunder are in serious talks to move Kelly Oubre Jr. to the Golden State Warriors, according to Shams Charania.

The Warriors will absorb Oubre’s $14.4 million salary into their $17.2 million trade exception once the deal is done, notes Adrian Wojnarowski.

Oubre was traded to the Thunder from the Phoenix Suns in the Chris Paul trade on Nov. 16.

The 24-year-old could give the Warriors another scoring and three-point threat on the wing with Klay Thompson out this season due to a torn Achilles.

Oubre averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.9 three-pointers per game last season with the Suns.
