Kevin Huerter Quotes

"I don't think there's one specific guy, but I think that for me, one of my strengths is shooting the ball. I think my game goes past that and a little bit further. So guys I try to look up to (are) Gordon Hayward, Klay Thompson, Bradley Beal -- just the way those guys can shoot the ball but also put the ball on the floor and make plays for others." 

On Dwyane Wade: "You never hear him with off-court type of stuff. He brought championships to this city. He's been with the Heat for the majority of his career. He's been loyal to them. And as a guy coming up, a young guy, starting out with the Hawks, I hope I can continue a long career with them. The league's going to miss him, for sure." 

“I’ve been so fortunate with the opportunity I’ve gotten, to kind of show what I’ve been able to do.”
