Phoenix Suns forward Kelly Oubre signed a two-year deal to remain with the team and return to free agency when he is 25.

The restricted free agent was free to entertain offers from other teams, but the Suns retained refusal rights and planned to match any reasonable contract.

According to multiple reports, Oubre will make $30 million — $15 million per season — after an impressive showing with the Suns over the second half of last season.

Upon being acquired along with Austin Rivers from the Washington Wizards in December, Oubre played 40 games and averaged 16.9 points and also posted career-best averages in rebounds (4.9) and assists (1.6) before a season-ending thumb injury in March.
