Here are 3 quotes from USA Men’s Basketball managing director Grant Hill discussing Utah Jazz center Walker Kessler.

(via Utah Jazz):

Thinks USAB experience will help Kessler develop:

“I think Walker will come out of this a new person, a new player, and have newfound confidence that will help continue to launch his game and continue to get closer to reaching his potential.”

Talks Kessler’s rookie season/high character:

“Walker had a really fantastic rookie season. I got a chance to get to know him a little bit and cover some of his games when he was at Auburn. His size, his length, his understanding of who he is. I think he’s someone who has high character; you want character, not characters. He kinda exceeded my expectations this year as a rookie.”

Says he’s excited for the young center’s future:

“This kid has a chance to be a fantastic player, an All-Star, and I’m excited that he’s with us. I’m excited for Utah and his future. I envision he’s someone who will be a part of this for many years to come. So get him in the fold now, and let him sort of grow as we continue to grow.”
