  • Kyle Kuzma spoke about how his 🇺🇸 coaches emphasized rebounding to him, and after checking in as one of the first subs vs. 🇪🇸, Kuz grabbed 3 defensive boards in his first 3 minutes of action. He also looked good pushing in transition, and added an early 3 + an assist.

  • Great example of what PJ Tucker was talking about after USA practice yesterday when asked if/how Kuzma can develop as a defender, and how communication is a major key on that end. Takes a lot of knowledge/experience to talk that much.

  • Kuzma on Cousins: "It's super unfortunate for a guy like DeMarcus because you can just tell how much he loves basketball through all of these injuries ... he's fought back and tried to get back as early as possible ... he was going to be a big part of what we're going to do."

  • RT @ByTimReynolds: Couple things ... USA Basketball is not picking a final World Cup roster Saturday. At least 14 players are going to Australia. Roster will be 12 when the team goes to China. Marcus Smart isn’t expected to play tomorrow vs Spain; he will likely play when team goes to Australia.

  • Donovan Mitchell on Kuz’s defense: "He’s a defensive player now. He can play defense. People kind of knock (his defense), I don’t know why … But he’s a guy who’s taking the charge, communicating … I think that shows a lot to his maturity and a lot about his work ethic."

  • Asked respected defender PJ Tucker about Kuz, who’s been focusing on his defense. Tucker said verbal communication is a big key, then added: "He’s so young and athletic, he has so much energy … he has a chance to be a really good defender, be a good 2-way player.”

  • A few of the USA players were asked about the scrimmage loss yesterday and (rightly) dismissed it. Came off 2 hours of practice against a fresh/hungry group of guys. Not a game. That happens all the time, dating back to the Dream Team. Should be no significance attached.
