    The Ringer looks over the NBA free agent market and says this about Kelly Olynyk.


    In the event you sort of lost touch with Olynyk after he got shipped to Houston in the Heat’s optimistic but ill-fated gamble on Victor Oladipo—understandable, because the Rockets were a pretty tough watch down the stretch—the former Celtic took advantage of his opportunity to sop up minutes and touches, averaging 19 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists in 31.1 minutes per game while shooting 64 percent on 2-pointers, 39 percent from distance, and 84 percent at the charity stripe. He’s unlikely to replicate that level of production in a more circumscribed role on a team with playoff aspirations, but he’s proved over the years a fairly steady and versatile hand, capable of playing the 4 or the 5 as matchups dictate, serving as a floor-spacing pick-and-pop threat or an offensive hub at the elbows. He also brings a ton of playoff experience from his stints in Boston and Miami, which could make him an attractive option for teams looking to bolster their frontcourt rotations with an eye on long postseason runs.

    The dude signs another contract for $1 million/month. Good for him.
