The Los Angeles Lakers re-signed forward Ryan Kelly to a two-year deal worth more than $3.3 million, the team announced Monday

In his rookie year with the Lakers, Kelly averaged 8.0 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. The 6-11 former Duke standout provided L.A. with a stretch big, shooting 2.4 threes per game at a 33.8 percent clip. 

Kelly will be coming back to a Lakers team with a suddenly crowded frontcourt. L.A. drafted Julius Randle with the No. 7 pick in June's draft, re-signed center Jordan Hill to a two-year, $18 million deal, won the Carlos Boozer amnesty auction and signed former Memphis Grizzlies forward Ed Davis to a two-year deal. Returning center Robert Sacre is also on the roster.
