Kentavious Caldwell-Pope shared his excitement for the performance of his teammate Kyle Kuzma this season.

Caldwell-Pope said Kuzma has ‘grown a lot as a player’ and has improved significantly, especially on the offesive end.

“He’s grown a lot … being more aggressive on the offensive end … crashing the glass … being in the right position and getting rebounds. He’s playing with great energy, and we need that from him,” Caldwell-Pope said, via Mike Trudell of Spectrum Sportsnet.

Kuzma had 24 points (8/18 shooting) and 13 rebounds against the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, leading the Lakers to the 100-105 win.
