Philadelphia 76ers Landing Kyle Kuzma – The Trade Proposal

The Philadelphia 76ers will receive Kyle Kuzma.
The Washington Wizards will receive Marcus Morris Sr., Danuel House Jr., Furkan Korkmaz, and a 2026 First-Round Draft Pick.

It wasn’t expected that the Sixers would perform this well in the current season. They were not expected to be in the title race, but with 8-1, they seem to be the title contenders. After trading James Harden, the Philly haven’t lost any game to the Los Angeles Clippers.

But the reason why Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report has proposed this trade deal between the Sixers and Wizards is because the Sixers’ small forward Kelly Oubre has met with a car accident in Philadelphia, so he won’t be available to play.

Bailey wrote:

“Kuzma has been far from the most efficient scorer over the past several years, but this deal would probably make him a reserve in Philadelphia.”

“His ability to score in bunches might be even more effective against reserves.”

Could Kuzma’s Steller Stats Land Him in the Sixers?

Kyle Kuzma has averaged around 23 points, 3 assists, and 6.4 rebounds this season for the Wizards. Moreover, he has a shooting average of about 47.4% from the field, 32.8% from beyond the arc, and 79.3% from the free throw line. As of now, Washington Wizards are 2-7 in the current season.

The Wizards ended up playing 4v5 on this play because of Kyle Kuzma ????

If the Sixers acquire Kuzma from Washington, they could start big with players like Tyrese Maxey, Tobias Harris, De’Anthony Melton, Joel Embiid, and Kuzma.
