The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly offered Kyle Kuzma to 'almost every team' in the NBA. That doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon, as the purple and gold included the forward in a trade package rejected by the Indiana Pacers.
Kuz is linked with a move away from Staples Center, and the team is actively trying to deal him this summer. After a couple of rough seasons with the squad, it seems like Kuz's time in L.A. is finished, and the team is trying to find the best offer for him.
However, that won't be easy, as teams already started rejecting offers from the 2020 NBA champions. According to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Lakers tried to move up in the draft before the Pacers rejected their trade proposal.
Kuzma and the Lakers’ 22nd pick was also discussed with the Pacers. The talks centered around acquiring the 13th overall pick from Indiana and needed salary filler but was turned down, HoopsHype has learned.
If reports are to believe, Kyle won't miss suitors this offseason. The young player is ready to make an impact on any other team in the association, but the Lakers need to find the right squad with the right deal.
Kuz can be helpful for other franchises in the league. He's been linked with the Sacramento Kings recently, and that won't be the last time we hear of trade rumors involving the player.
