It has been 15 games since the Houston Rockets acquired Kelly Olynyk and he's appeared in 14 of them, playing better than advertised.
Olynyk is averaging 17.9 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists while shooting 59.5 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range. It's been a breakout season for Olynyk, averaging career-highs in points, rebounds and assists, and it's coming at the perfect time - Olynyk will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In a class that lacks star power, Olynyk should have multiple suitors who hope to secure a stretch big who's still in the prime of his career.
The trade to Houston may have been seen as a negative for Olynyk's career - there were rumours that he might have been bought out or waived by the Rockets - but instead, it has put him in a position to display his best talents in an offensive-friendly system.
Even though Mike D'Antoni is gone, Houston's offence still emphasizes two things - getting to the rim and taking threes. According to Cleaning The Glass, Houston ranks in the top five in both percentage of shots taken at the rim (shots within four feet of the basket) and percentage of shots taken from 3-point range.
Under that structure, Olynyk has become uber-efficient.
