As free agency wears on, the Jazz have an interest in adding "more shooting in more spots," a league source tells The Salt Lake Tribune.
One of the names that could pop up is Los Angeles Lakers forward Ryan Kelly.
He fits the mold of what Quin Snyder wants, which is a big man who can shoot the ball, stretch the floor and open up space for the guards to get to the rim. Kelly had a good rookie season with the Lakers, although he did battle foot issues.
But he can shoot. And right now - with Marvin Williams a free agent - the Jazz could use shooting in that spot.
Kelly also has size. He’s 6-foot-11 and 240 pounds. He won’t be much of a post threat. But if the Jazz do have interest in him, he absolutely fits the offense that Snyder wants to run.
