    This coming year is a breakout year for Kuzma. I think he has steadily improved to the point that a little more nudge and he will be at the all-star level. If Lakers trade Kuzma right now they will sell an all-star level player dirt cheap.

    Kuzma did what he could. I believe he should stay. His assist went up when he was cold and defense went up too. I thought he played like we all expected in the finals...nervous. Next year if they keep him he will be more mature and polished. #teamkuzma

    What a lot of folks don't seem to understand is that Kuzma is playing within the Frank Vogel system, where plays aren't run for him. With AD and Bron as leaders starting and Rondo coming off the bench at point, Kuzma is like 4th or 5th option in that complex offense that Vogel runs. The vast majority of his points come from creating his own shots, sheer hustle and rebounding. But this is also a business and with a Chip on his resume, Kuz is now free to....Follow The Money!!

    I’d love to see kuzma stay a laker. Obviously, you gotta listen to the offers. Make counteroffers that might include him. But personally, I would rather re-evaluate at the trade deadline. Give Kuz the chance to prove what he can do for the beginning of the season and see where his stock is at after that.

    Nothing wrong with Kyle Kuzma's numbers IMO other than FG%. His efficiency was bad with limited pressure and his defense is inconsistent. I like that I saw him cutting and being more active off ball. I think you have to assess him differently on this team.

    The Lakers should get Josh Richardson or Spencer Dinwiddie. Both players are in 11-12M salary range, both are playmakers, Richardson elite defensively with a good 3pt % and Dinwiddie all-star level player can be the next all-star pg for the Lakers. They can be traded for Kuzma, Cook, Javale & 1st Rnd Pick.

    Danny Green had a fabulous finals with the Spurs. I haven't seen him do well since then. He is just too inconsistent of a shooter. Get a new shooting guard. If the Lakers get that, they become unstoppable. If you can trade Kuzma for that, it is worth it. If not, just keep him. He is decent - more consistent than Danny Green.

    Kuzma is a rhythm player, he needs to be on the court for a period of time to shine. However, their opponents in the recent playoffs run did not allow him to be playing with AD and LBJ concurrently due to his size, 6’9”. That’s why Danny Green/Caruso and KCP starts instead because of their higher mobility.

    It makes sense for LA to give up Kuz, McGee, and DG for either Hield or Oladipo. Resign Rondo, KCP, Markieff, and Dwight. Sign Marcus Morris, Boogie Cousins and other vet shooters. Provides the team with shooting, defense, high IQ, and size. The trade for CP3 is not feasible with that massive contract, the package that the Lakers have is weak for a perennial allstar like Beal (29ppg) and Bulls arent giving up Lavine especially when they hired Donovan to maximize his skillset.

    I saw a post that suggested the Lakers COULD be interested in Derrick Rose. While I appreciate Kuzma, the idea of him being traded to Detroit (in his home state of Michigan) is compelling. He'd be given an opportunity to showcase his full potential, much like Ingram in New Orleans. Who knows? He could be a future Most Improved Player. Either way, I hope the best for Kuz. Be it with Lakers or otherwise.

    I think with everything that happened this year to the NBA and Kuz personally I think Lakers should either extend him or keep him this year or maybe trade him at the trade deadline. Remember he was injured at the start of the season so that definitely effects HIS grove and chemistry with others. Lakers only had 6 players return from last year's roster so that early season time is crucial for a team still finding chemistry. Then what was said in video about him not starting so every stat dropped for him is huge for a young players confidence and rhythm. It's NOT easy playing with 2 all stars that are both play your position. Role-players on LeBron led teams are under a ton of pressure to produce too. Danny Green was a bigger flop this year than Kuz. Another big reason to not ship him out this off season is Kuz's play fluctuated with his confidence and chemistry. Why blow up your core when chemistry is such a vital part of a championship team and not to mention back 2 back champions. Just like LeBron needed 2 years every time he got on a new team before really rolling, Kuz needs more time healthy to flourish with team changers AD & Bron. Later in the season we saw flashes of great play because I think he was starting to find his role. Imagine what a 2nd year with the same role and major players AND same coach too. Now of course Lakers still need to be willing to hear trade offers from other teams. He is not off the trade blocks just because the organization likes him and last season was rough in many ways. I can't see a 1 for 1 trade where the Lakers get a dramatically better piece so now the question is how many players would you be giving up to get 1 better player? Can you get KCP & Rondo back? What about Morris or another vet you could sign for the vet minimum? Lakers are all set at being legit back 2 back championship threats if they keep their core together. Kuz is part of that core and I still think he has an upside to him in every part of his game.

    I had such high hopes for Kyle Kuzma but unfortunately he isn't living up to his potential. Or perhaps he has already reached his ceiling and this is the best we will ever see from him. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for certain and that is this season he has regressed. I cannot stand players who are not improving yet they are going in the opposite direction and actually getting worse. With that said, I no longer want to wait for him to mature into his NBA potential. I'd rather trade him now that he still have trade value before it's too late.

    Kyle kuzma was doing great Before AD , he became one of the top scorers for Lakers before ad , When AD came on his minutes got less so he never had time to get his game flow going , look at the two seasons when he was starting his stats was going the right direction but boom next season he became a bench player due to that it stunt his growth, I think they should keep him his young and has time to growth be a perfect fit knowing the team system once Lebron retires!
