Kyle Kuzma    F  Lakers



Lakers GM Rob Pelinka likes the energy and tenacity that rookie Kyle Kuzma brings to the court. "The thing we walked away with is he just has an energy about him, and that also translates to the court," the GM said. "He’s incredibly light on his feet, makes great decisions. Versatility has been a big guide for us...He’s long, he’s athletic, and I think he’s going to continue to work on his defense and his shooting." It's clear the new Lakers front office is putting a renewed emphasis on work ethic and character as defining points in their culture.

Kyle Kuzma    F  Lakers



The Los Angeles Lakers have selected Kyle Kuzma with the No. 27 overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Lakers acquired this pick from Brooklyn in the D'Angelo Russell trade. The 6'10" Kuzma carried the Utes offense with his team-high 16.4 points on a 27.0 usage rate and 56.5 true shooting percentage as a junior. Kuzma's offensive game is well-rounded with shots from all over the court, but he did make just 36.0 percent on two-point jumpers and only 32.1 percent on treys for his 0.9 makes per outing. While he did pull down 9.0 boards per game, he also didn’t really much else with 0.6 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.1 turnovers. He'll have a lot of work to do if he hopes to earn meaningful minutes in his rookie season in Los Angeles playing behind Julius Randle and Larry Nance.
