^ That.

What does it matter that he's getting paid? Seriously. The Lakers clearly see something there and would like to have the kid around. Who cares? Even if he ends up being camp fodder there's literally dozens of kids like this all over the NBA, why aren't you upset about every single one of them? Some of them won't play a minute even in the pre-season. Does that mean the teams shouldn't pay them?

Remember what we did for Turiaf. His heart issue was a bigger problem than Kelly's foot injury. Still, we kept him with the team and even if he was not great he was a good teamate and one of our favorite player. Turiaf like Kelly was a second round pick.
Offseason's finished for my long sleeping nights. NBA is back !!

what do I care about other teams fodder? sure its not my money, just shows how managment keeps wasting money, just like with DJO, spend 500k to buy the pick only to not even keep him on the roster.

I guess every team wastes money on these training camps. Let's just get rid of training camp, it's a waste of time and money.

Off on one of the side courts in the Lakers practice facility, second-round draft pick Ryan Kelly participated in shooting drills along with Chris Kaman. It was the second day Kelly did some light work on the hardwood.
“Where I’m at physically, that’s hard to say,” Kelly said. “It’s going to take some time … (I’m) trying to stay involved as much as I can.”
The former Duke product underwent surgery on his right foot on April 9, but had yet to be cleared by doctors in mid-July. The Lakers signed him on September 20, but they have been cautious during his recovery process.
“(Health) is the most important thing and that’s why I’ve been following what the Lakers have asked me medically,” Kelly said.
Kelly did miss playing in summer league, and has been limited thus far in camp in terms of participating in drills and 5-on-5 scrimmages. But he maintains there is no rush to get back onto the court.
“Certainly I want that opportunity, but health is more important than just one year (in your career), he said. “I’m a competitor and I want to be on the court obviously, and show what I can do, but you have to take care of your health first.”

Ryan Kelly will surprise a lot of people.

He plays like Troy Murphy (with better handles) / Dirk Nowitzki.

He doesn't play like Dirk at all... Dirk posts up mid range and shoots over you. Kelly either shoots or takes one dribble pull ups. He's more of a Channing Frye than a Dirk.

Troy Murphy could board a little bit in his prime and when healthy. Kelly can't jump and he doesn't seem like a strong rebounder.

Channing Frye is a good piece IMO. One element that every team needs is the stretch big man.

I like Kelly. I think he's got a future in the NBA if he puts some weight on. He knows the game, he's got a slick shot, and he's fundamentally sound. I think if he puts weight on, he can box out effectively and play some of that stretch 4.

Ryan Kelly is the next Dirk Nowitzki.

He will be an all star in 3-5 yrs.

Oh boy, here we go again. Mentioning Ryan Kelly in the same sentence as Dirk Nowitzki is like comparing Robert Sacre to Kareem.

But hey this is CL tradition. I'm surprised ridiculous comparisons haven't happened sooner this preseason. Remember these gems?

I actually think Kelly could have some promise. At 6-11 he is a good spot up guy that can also shoot off the dribble pretty well. On defense he is a liability but at least coming from Duke he has talent in taking charges. Likely not a serious contributor but a good asset to have on the bench. At worst he is Brian Cook.

Ryan Kelly is a hybrid combination of Dirk Nowitizki, Andrea Bargnani and Channing Frye.
