Kyle Kuzma is set to continue his career with the Washington Wizards after four years with the Los Angeles Lakers. The 26-year-old forward saw his role change over his time in LA from one of the focal points on offense to coming off the bench.
According to Kuzma, one aspect of the game that he has developed last season in particular is his passing ability. Instead of focusing on scoring, he learned to get his teammates more involved.
“This offseason I’ve really done a great job of hammering my ball-handling,” Kuzma said. “I think last year with the Lakers, I did a great job of showing and being a willing passer, somebody that can get guys open and get guys open looks.”
This past season, Kuzma averaged 12.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 28.7 minutes per game.
