But 19 still means he’s capable, even if he’s not Thompson. It’s part of his arsenal. Oubre has become a better 3-point shooter as he’s matured. He hit 31 and 28 percent his first two seasons in Washington. He spiked that to 32 his first season in Phoenix and then to a career-high 35 percent last season on a healthy 5.5 attempts per game.
The splits are a bit cockeyed. Oubre was actually better on pull-up 3s (38 percent) than catch-and-shoot types (34 percent) last season. He actually had better success when a defender was within 2-4 feet (43 percent) than when nobody was within four feet (34 percent). So the kind of looks the Warriors would ideally want to get Oubre — wide open, catch-and-shoots created by Curry’s gravity — isn’t his strength.
Oubre just isn't good with what we're asking him to do based on past experience and is his D really that great to offset his weakness?
Also, makes you wonder if the Warriors still have an analytics person on staff who did the due diligence prior to giving up a potential first round pick --albeit a late one -- for him.
