Just a couple of days ago the Los Angeles Lakers took home championship number 17, now it comes the offseason and by the looks of things so far, the roster could look different outside of LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Lakers could have a lot of questions to answer this offseason, with one of the most notable storylines being whether or not Kyle Kuzma gets trades. The Kuzma trade rumors were very prominent before the trade deadline but nothing came of it. Kuzma stayed in LA, continued his volatility throughout the rest of the season but won a championship in the process. But now they have come up again.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, teams are reportedly looking to acquire the 6'8" 25-year-old.
The forward averaged 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists while shooting 43.6% overall and 31.6% on 3-pointers. In the playoffs, Kuzma’s numbers dipped to 10.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per game on 43.0% shooting from the field and 31.3% on 3-pointers. His defense improved drastically and played a key role in the Lakers’ championship.
