The camp features top 2013-14 NBA D-League prospects and gives players an opportunity to display their skills and be evaluated by NBA team personnel in advance of NBA Summer Leagues and 2014 training camps.

The 6-9, 255-pound forward was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the second round (57th overall) of the 2013 NBA Draft.

Kelley averaged 19.4 points and 5.1 assists in 34 games with the Skyforce (all starts). The 6-0, 188 pound guard was acquired via a trade with the Austin Toros on January 4.
