Getting His Model On: NBA Player Kelly Oubre Jr. By David Agbodji
NBA player Kelly Oubre Jr. of the Washington Wizards was lensed by model and photographer David Agbodji.
This guy could serious make a lot of money off the court, expanding his modeling and fashion brand. I could see him in the pages of Vogue, GQ, Complex and on the runways across the globe.
Oubre Jr. is now adding model to his résumé.
We previously reported that ReQuest Model Management is now representing the 20-year-old New Orleans-native on special arrangement (see it here).
Last fall, donbleek.com reported that Paul Oubre Jr. inked a deal with German-based footwear, apparel, and sports giant adidas Hoops (see it here).
The former University of Kansas basketball player was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the 15th overall pick at the 2015 NBA Draft which took place last June at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York.
His draft rights were then traded to the Washington Wizards in exchange for the draft rights to the 19th pick, Jerian Grant, and two second round draft picks.
Oubre Jr. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to Richmond, Texas after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He attended George Bush High School in Fort Bend, Texas before transferring to Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada for his senior season.
