2017 Draft Profile: Kyle Kuzma

Kyle Kuzma is a weapon with the ball in his hands. During his Utah career, he routinely showed off his skills as a scorer and passer at the power forward position, while also displaying some ball handling.

Also known for hitting the glass, Kuzma was one of the Pac-12’s top five scorers and rebounders during his last year in college. Immediately after, he shined at the NBA Draft Combine by scoring 20 points in as many minutes — thanks largely to a 4-of-5 clip from 3-point range that he hopes he can carry to the pros.

“I think I can bring to the NBA versatility,” Kuzma said. at his Lakers workout on May 22 “I feel like the league is going toward four men that can pass, dribble, shoot, rebound, defend. I think I can do all that and bring that to the table at the highest level.”
