With the Los Angeles Lakers being willing to listen on offers for players, here are three trade scenarios for Kyle Kuzma,

The Los Angeles Lakers, after a bumpy December, are back in the swing of things and winning games which keeps them at the top of the west. A lot of the credit goes to the superstar forwards Anthony Davis and LeBron James who continue to push this Lakers team to heights not seen since the days of Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.

The trade for Anthony Davis has looked a good piece of business for the purple and gold, as Davis is playing at an MVP caliber level and is a likely candidate for Defensive Player of the Year. Not since Tim Duncan has there been a more well-rounded power forward/center.

Let us not forget LeBron James. If the fountain of youth is real then James surely has visited there and bathed in its magical and mystical waters.

At 35, LeBron is doing things superstars in their prime are incapable of doing. He is a walking triple-double every single night and is letting people know that the King ain’t dead.

While Davis and James have been fantastic, the same unfortunately can not be said for budding star Kyle Kuzma.

A great deal was expected from the last remaining member of the beloved young core. His ability to get hot and to score in bunches made him a piece the Lakers refused to give up in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans and even on that front he has yet to deliver this season.

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic “The Lakers are listening to offers for their young star“.

If true, this development isn’t completely unexpected. The Lakers mentality is Championship or bust and they need every player bringing their best.

With that said, here are 3 trade scenarios for Kyle Kuzma.
