I still think that if Meyers can hardball him into a "bet on yourself deal" he could either be forced into a role that helps the team (matchup driven off the bench) and with maximized positive minutes while Klay plays into shape. If a few things break right, he could be very tradeable at the next deadline.
I thin this is the best case scenario. An Oubre sized TPE in a sign and trade probably nets us... another Kelly Oubre level player down the line that we'd need to give up more picks for and we'd likely have to burn some picks to even convince a team to do a sign and trade with us to et us the Oubre TPE. Oubre back on a 1+1 deal is easier to salary match when you're big fish hunting.
