Utah graduate Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles Lakers has been tabbed as the steal of the NBA draft by USA Today.

“I played behind a lot of NBA draft picks, and I don’t know why they missed on me,” Kuzma said to The Undefeated. “Scouting departments aren’t that tight, I guess. I don’t know. Who knows? A lot of folks are biting themselves now though.”
