Lakers walked away from the 2013 draft with one pick in the second round by drafting Forward Ryan Kelly from Duke University.

Kelly is a 6″11″ stretch 4 that shot 42% in his last season at Duke – exactly the kind of player that fits Mike D’Antoni’s system.

Kelly’s ability to stretch the floor should provide the spacing required for Dwight Howard should he decide to listen to the billboards around town and STAY.

Kelly averaged 12.9 pts per game and 5.7 rebounds last season for Duke, but is still recovering from a foot injury and will not be participating in the summer league.
