We take an in-depth look at the career of Kyle Kuzma thus far with the Los Angeles Lakers.

For the last two weeks, the Los Angeles Lakers have been at the center of the basketball world because of their public, or not so public, interest around New Orleans Pelicans All-NBA forward, Anthony Davis.

With the trade deadline now less than a week away, various “sources” have been reporting about the many trade packages that the Lakers have been putting together to try and acquire Davis.

At the center of these packages have been the Lakers top young player, Kyle Kuzma. Though some people might disagree with me on that, it is clear that no deal for Anthony Davis will get done without Kuzma being the centerpiece of said trade.

Kuzma is having the best year of his very young career, but just like the rest of the Lakers young players, there is a growing sentiment that they won’t be around much longer. Various trade packages have included players such as Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Ivica Zubac and a first-round pick.

Though others have been putting out conflicting reports of offers that only involve two of the Lakers young stars such as Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball.

Regardless, if this is indeed the beginning of the end for Kyle Kuzma in Los Angeles, then let’s take a look at his short career up to this point.
