With the trade deadline approaching, there is great speculation about the future of the Lakers roster. In fact, players being moved like chess pieces is a common occurrence on teams with the future Hall of Famer Lebron James. The search for a third piece to complement Anthony Davis And Lebron James has been an ongoing struggle throughout the season. There have been rumors of a possible Kyle Kuzma trade. To keep, or not to keep Kuz!
Kyle Kuzma is young and hungry to get better! In five years, this team will be completely different – with an aging Lebron James – having experienced youth will give the Lakers hope for the future. But is the future enough? The versatile 6’8 forward has shown flashes throughout the season that will prove to be valuable in the postseason. The major problem with Kuzma is his consistency – And not being consistent is a tradable trait.
The time is now! The Los Angeles Lakers as a Franchise has never been a team to built young players. It is either you’re ready or not because the number one goal is championships every season. This motto fits alongside Lebron James. The Lakers need veteran shooters, not an inconsistent youngster with a chip on his shoulder. Trade Kyle Kuzma!
