Lakers assign Ryan Kelly, Elias Harris to D-League


The Lakers sent both their rookies from this year’s draft to their D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, on Thursday afternoon.

 

 

Neither Kelly nor Harris have seen significant action, seeing just 7 and 11 minutes of action, respectively. Both were seen as good fits in Mike D’Antoni’s offense, but neither have developed fully. More playing time in the D-League will certainly push their development along.
