Ryan Kelly is a sharpshooting big man out of Duke University. In his final season at Duke, Kelly averaged 12.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.6 blocks, while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 42.2 percent from beyond the three point line. If Ryan Kelly is healthy, he could be the perfect stretch-four in Mike D’Antoni’s system.
