NBA Rumors: Free Agent Kelly Olynyk Garnering ‘Lots Of Interest’ Around League


Most top-tier NBA free agents no longer are on the open market, but there still are several quality players out there capable of helping any team.

One of those players is Kelly Olynyk, who became an unrestricted free agent Monday after being renounced by the Boston Celtics. And with the C’s appearing to be moving on from the four-year veteran, several teams reportedly would be interested in his services.

Though he’s not a superstar, Olynyk provides a unique skill set and can serve as a solid option off the bench. At 7-feet, he’s capable of affecting the game in the interior and can also step out for a 3-point shot. He’s a career 47 percent shooter with an average of 9.5 points per game.

Olynyk would be a nice addition for the Indiana Pacers, as he’d back up rising star Myles Turner. The Pacers need as much talent as they can get after trading Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Olynyk could help the team be competitive.
