The Kyle Kuzma Trade Proposal

The Los Angeles Lakers will receive Kyle Kuzma.
The Washington Wizards will receive D’Angelo Russell, Cam Reddish, Maxwell Lewis, and two second-round draft picks in exchange.

Jedd Pagaduan of the ClutchPoints has proposed this trade deal between the Wizards and the Lakers. Pagaduan is a popular NBA news writer.

Pagaduan wrote in his NBA trade column:

“Kyle Kuzma would then give the Lakers more size on the wing, another player who will be relentless on the boards as well as someone who could take on matchups against bigger wings.”

“A lineup of Kuzma, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Rui Hachimura, and Jarred Vanderbilt may even be viable in spurts.

Pagaduan further added:

“With Gabe Vincent, Austin Reaves, and LeBron James around to handle playmaking duties, with Kuzma able to do so in a pinch as well, the Lakers would do well to acquire the Wizards forward in this deal. Alas, this trade may end up being too cheap for the Wizards’ liking.”
