Kyle Kuzma is excited that Marc Gasol decided to stay with the Los Angeles Lakers after the team added Andre Drummond to take over his role as a starting center.

The 25-year-old forward reacted to a story of Gasol saying he accepted his new role and is committed to the team.

“Champion!!! Glad you stayed my dude!!!! Marc Gasol,” Kuzma tweeted in support of his teammate. The Spaniard has just played the game of the season against his former team the Toronto Raptors.

Gasol played 28 minutes during which he had 13 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists, helping the Lakers take the win in Tampa (110-101).
