Ryan Kelly

Ever since making his changes to the starting lineup, Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott has had a pretty set rotation, especially when it comes to the frontcourt. Jordan Hill, Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer all get around 25 minutes depending on who is playing best that night, and Robert Sacre has averaged around 15 minutes as well.

The addition of both players gives the Lakers some different options depending on the matchup each night. Last year, Kelly turned out to be one of the more consistent rotation players and even earned a starting job by the time the season ended.
