According to Lakers.com, the Los Angeles Lakers have officially signed their second round pick, Ryan Kelly. Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times says it is a one year, non-guaranteed contract.

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.
