Oubre was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the 15th pick overall in the 2015 NBA Draft. Almost immediately, he was traded to the Washington Wizards in 3-team trade that included the Hawks, the Wizards, and the New York Knicks. He played in three seasons with the Wizards, where he averaged 7.6 points 3.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 20.2 minutes per game while shooting 32.2 percent from the three-point line.
Oubre would start last season with the Wizards but he was traded to the Phoenix Suns, alongside Austin Rivers, in exchange of Trevor Ariza. He would play in 40 games for the Suns and averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.4 steals in 29.5 minutes per game.
