    I was thinking about this last night. I reckon Danny Green, Kuz and a few picks could get them a solid star player possibly

    He deserves a team that he can make an impact on right away ! I was a fan until that game last night I watched him miss about 12 to 13 shots unacceptable bottom line!!!!

    I don’t think kuzma has that much upside. The reason he was so good right off the bat was because he spent 4 years in college so his game was more polished. He is gonna stay around this level

    If Kuzma was on any other team, no one would even know his name.

    The question is: who out there can replace kuzma?
    Kuzma only need a little bit of consistency for the lakers to get the chip.

    for me they need to get a forward who can make plays and be a dog in the defensive side and can make the right decision without being ball dominant also a championship mentality

    This may be an Elden Campbell/Shaq scenario. No disrespect to Kuz, but the fit may not work. The Lakers aint trading Anthony Davis. If Kuz cant play next to Davis then the best move might be to trade Kuzma.

    NOPE. Kuzma will stay even when LeBron's contract is over. He is the future of the team. They already gave up too much from the Davis trade

    I didn’t want him to get traded but this fan base is so toxic now that the lebrontards are in the mix, I want him to get traded to a team where he’ll be appreciated and is contending for a title. Like whoever that takes his place via trade will make a huge difference lmao since all Lebron wanna do is draw fouls, whine like the usual and ride AD all game every game.

  • Matt Mc
    Matt Mc 8 months ago

    Obviously it depends what they can get back, but yes, lebron is 35 and they're a title contender, and Kuzma is older than you'd think (24) and one of the more overrated players in the league (he's inefficient, not a great passer, and a bad defender). In his prime maybe he turns into like the 4th best player on a championship team, more likely is ideally he's a microwave bench scorer that shores up his efficiency and defense. If lebron were in his prime i might say nah, keep him if you don't get a pretty good return, but due to lebron's age there's some urgency to win now

    Trade Kuzma & watch he start balling consistently like Brandon Ingram 💯

    Everyone saying ESPN bringing up trade talks for Kuz. We all know L3-6ron has been trying to get him traded since he pushed him into playing D last season. The trainer comments didn't help anything either.
    Edit: I honestly feel sorry for the Real Lakers fans. LeChoke has traded away your teams entire youth. After he looses to PG and Kawhi this year and next he will jump ship, yet again, to another man's team and try to form one last super team only to loose, yet again, in the finals. Meanwhile the Lakers franchise is left in ruins all because of L3-6ron.
