On January 6 Beijing time, the Los Angeles Lakers have recently begun to listen to offers for a deal for Kyle Kuzma, according to famed NBA reporter Sam Amiko.
Recently, rumors of kudzma's trades have emerged. Over the past two seasons, Kuzma has gradually become a core member of the Lakers. Last summer, the lakers gave away almost all the young core players in the anthony-davis trade, leaving kuzmar alone.
However, this season, in addition to injury factors, Kuzma's performance in the Lakers showed a significant decline. He all got points, rebounds and assists in the season. But this season, the kuds track has all had points, rebounds and assists, and his shooting rate has fallen to a career-low%.
Even if the Lakers don't send Kuzma before this year's trade deadline, they need to consider the future of Kuzma this summer. Kuzma is eligible for an extension this summer, meaning the Lakers have to decide whether they want to give Kuzma a big contract.
Kuzma's contract for next season is $3.5 million, so the Lakers can wait until the summer of 2021 for Kuzma to become a restricted free agent before deciding his future.
Amiko points out that if davis renews his contract with the lakers this summer (as is widely seen), kudzma will remain a replacement for the lakers until james retires.
LeBron James, of course, has a role to play in the Lakers \"lineup structure. But while Kuzma's trainers have recently attacked James on social media, James still supports him, according to a person familiar with the matter.
