Newcomer forward Markieff Morris had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Los Angeles Lakers Kyle Kuzma.

“He’s gonna be special. Kuz is young right now, he’s still figuring everything out. Third year, he’s playing like an eight or ninth year player. He’s got some stuff to figure out… but I’m excited for his future for sure,” Morris told reporters, per Spectrum SportsNet.

Kuzma has had an up-and-down season with the Lakers after having his role displaced when L.A. traded for superstar Anthony Davis.
