The Warriors are going to have to get creative to add pieces this offseason.

With almost no salary cap space, Golden State has a $17.2 million trade exception that they can deploy to sign free agents, but beyond that will be relegated to acquiring any new players via trade.

One of those players the team is reportedly mulling over is Kelly Oubre Jr., according to Nick Fridell of ESPN.

“The name that keeps popping up when you talk to people is Kelly Oubre,” Friedell said Wednesday on “The Jump.” “Can they get him in? What would they have to give up? They have the trade exception for Andre Iguodala as well that expires here in a little bit.”

Oubre, 24, would be an excellent fit for a Warriors team that is lacking true wings behind starters Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins. Oubre has averaged 17.9 points per game while shooting 34.1 percent from three in one and a half years with the Suns. Oubre is 15th overall pick with the Hawks in 2015.
