Frank Vogel opened up about Kyle Kuzma signing a contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Vogel, the head coach of the Lakers, shared his excitement for the decision of the defending champions to keep Kuzma in the team long term.

“I personally couldn’t be more excited that we got Kuz into a contract extension. He’ll be with us for years to come and I just love what the young man represents…He’s the kind of player that we want here with LA Lakers on the floor.

He’s one of our hardest workers. He’s a team-first guy…He’s a big part of last year’s championship and a huge part of what we want to do this year as well,” Vogel told reporters about Kuzma, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Daily.

Kuzma and the Lakers agreed to a three-year contract extension, worth $40M.
