Profile:

ATL Forward: 6’11, 230 lbs; 5th year, Duke 

NBA Role: ‘stretch four’ 

This R. Kelly can’t fly, touch the sky or make a remix to ‘Ignition’ but can sorta shoot from deep; so far, Kelly is a ‘stretch four’ who, er, needs to stretch the floor better (career 31% shooter from downtown!); does not have a defined NBA position but spends most of his time up front – too slow to guard threes and not strong or quick enough enough to contain fours, has the jumper that suggests “floor spacer” upside at PF; at 6’11, Kelly should hold down the block and perfect a turnaround…buttt to stay in the league, focusing on becoming a true pick and pop power forward isn’t the worst idea; Coach Budenholzer values distance shooting, especially from bigs – can Kelly earn minutes in ’17-’18?
