Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs dribbles past Julius Randle #30 of the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half of a game at Staples Center on November 18, 2016 in Los Angeles. Kuzma was one of the NBA's best rookies last season, tied for the team lead with 16.1 points per game after being taken with the 27th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
