Oubre attended two different high-schools as his family moved to Nevada during his senior year. His talents earned him a massive reputation, and the forward committed to playing for the Kansas Jayhawks upon graduating high school.

Oubre completed just one year with the University of Kansas, but he had already shaped himself to star in the NBA. Hence, the 6’6” forward decided to forgo his remaining years at college after his freshman season in 2015.

He was given plenty of playing time as a rookie, and Oubre didn’t disappoint. He shot 44.4% of his attempted field goals and averaged 9.3 points and 5.0 rebounds in 36 games for the Jayhawks. 

Furthermore, Oubre attained a massive achievement in his personal life when he got engaged to Instagram model Shylyn. He proposed to his girlfriend early in December 2020 and posted the happy message on social media afterward.

The Atlanta Hawks spotted Oubre’s talents in the 2015 Draft and they selected him with the 15th overall pick. However, a subsequent trade sent him to Washington, where he played for the Wizards. 

He struggled to get game-time in Washington, and his disappointing stint with the Wizards came to an end after 2018. Oubre was then traded to the Phoenix Suns, where he began posting impressive numbers.
