2. SF Kelly Oubre Jr.
The Washington Wizards have been starting Kelly Oubre Jr. at the small forward position while moving Otto Porter Jr. to the power forward position. While this has worked out in the favor of a 4-2 record to start the year, the Wizards are better suited to go out and get a more natural four.
Porter is doing just fine at the power forward position for the Wizards, but Washington could use some size and physicality. Porter is averaging just 7.5 rebounds per game this season, which is not bad, but definitely could be improved upon. If the Wizards want to take that next step towards reaching the NBA Finals, they are going to have to add the right pieces.
The right piece to add right now is a starting caliber power forward. This, of course, would move Porter back to the small forward spot and Oubre to the bench. Instead of moving Oubre to the bench, the team could simply swap him for a power forward.
That power forward? Julius Randle. Randle has seen a decreased role with Larry Nance Jr. starting at power forward. With the acquisition of Oubre, Kyle Kuzma can become the primary back up four while Oubre takes his minutes behind Ingram. If Los Angeles can throw in a large contract as well this is a huge win.
Oubre definitely holds his own, as he is averaging 11.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. The defense of Oubre off the bench would be huge for the Lakers; he is no defensive wizard, but he definitely adds much-needed depth.
