NBA Comparison: Nick Fazekas

Strength: Standing at 6’11, Kelly has a nice shot at being a stretch four in the league ... A highly skilled big with great instincts ... Loves the game and has a tremendous work ethic ... A very accurate shooter (first evidenced on a national stage by winning the McDonald’s All-American Three Point Shootout in 2009) ... Shot 42.2% on threes this year on 3.6 attempts per game ... Is definitely more of a spot up shooter but has the ability to hit the pull-up jumper off one dribble as well as having a nice mid-range turnaround in the repertoire ... Has very good handles for his size and decent vision in the half court ... Surprisingly efficient defender according to the numbers. However his lack of strength, and lack of foot speed will hamper his effectiveness at the next level ... Excellent passer and decision maker, 1.7 to 1.0 a/to ratio ...

Weaknesses: Broken foot has come at an inopportune time as it will prevent him from being able to workout for teams leading up to the draft ... Does not seem to have a frame that will allow him to get much stronger ... A better athlete than given credit for but still below average for NBA level ... Will struggle guarding more athletic and stronger forwards in the league ... Does not have great foot speed/ foot work, especially moving side to side ... Almost strictly a half court player. His transition possessions make up less than 10% of his overall possessions. Extremely low ... Not a strong finisher at the rim as he is more of a finesse player ... Does not like to be physical in the paint and is a poor rebounder on both the offensive and defensive glass ... Only shot 45% and 44% from the field in his last two seasons at Duke, a stat that shows that he's far too perimeter oriented ... Will most likely need to find a team that fits his style in order to find his niche in the NBA.

Notes: Despite missing a portion of the season due to his foot injury and havfing post season surgery on it, scouts give Kelly a good shot to be a second round pick in 2013 ... Measured 6'11 (in shoes) 232 lbs, with a 6'11 wingspan at the 2012 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy ...
