The Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson says the Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma is perfectly fit for today’s NBA and will improve his game by playing for Team USA:

Per Los Angeles Times: “He’s perfect for today’s game with his ability to score on the perimeter. He’s really like a three man playing the four. He has to improve his catch-and-shoot ability a little more, obviously playing with LeBron [James] and A.D. [Anthony Davis] now, but I think he’s going to take on that third superstar role and really take off with it. He’s a very hard worker, which is what I like about him.

I know him playing for Team USA is going to pay huge dividends for him because that’s what it did for me. … That was the turning point in my career, playing against international superstars. If he goes out there and plays hard and puts the team on his shoulders, that’s going to give him so much confidence coming into this season like it did for myself in 2014,” Thompson said.
