One thing I noticed watching the highlights: can finish his left hand, great shot fake, good high post passer. Lots to like.


Lots of Larry Nance passing to his game. But can handle in transition.

I'm not familiar with him but the scouting department has earned my trust and respect with picks like Larry and Zub. So I'll be eager to see some film.

McBasketball doesn't like his #s and I haven't digged too much into them yet... But his highlights show a lot of unique skill.

He was 1st team all defense in the PAC 12. So at the very least he gives great effort on that side of the ball.

Defense, shooting, can run the floor and pass the ball.

Of course not at an elite level or he would not be available late in the draft, but it can be Nance 2.0, a solid role player every team needs.

His college high-lites look great, seems to play with more confidence than Nance, time will tell..


Hopefully we can see him in the Summer games...

I hope i'm wrong but i agree.

Combines mean nothing, people watch the game tape.

inconsistant, not that quick.


Is it even possible to be a bust at 27?

Nice. Happy to see better shooting from our bigs starting with Brook.

It'd be like Randle playing the 3 if he could shoot. Skills aren't maximized there / mobility is tough to consistently keep up on the perimeter defensively. Not natural at all, I say, no.

This guy was Utah's entire team last year. They fell off greatly when he was not on the floor. I watched him in Maui and when he got hurt, they couldn't do anything. He does a little bit of everything on the court and he's a good athlete/long perimeter defender. He reminds me of a more athletic Kyle Anderson. This guy could develop into a Thabo Sefalosha. We need defense and players like Kuzma help out immensely.

At his very best, he could be Otto Porter.

I love
Kuzma ,Larry, Hart , Ingram - filling the lanes with Lonzo passing ahead. All of those guys can get up/down and slash

Really like this pick.

Any way he could function as a pnr ball handler on occasion? Great passer, solid handle. Could be a matchup nightmare

his passing improving to Diaw-lite is not a stretch, and that's a huge compliment. His passing reminds me of Nance, but he can do it off he dribble
