Small forward Kyle Kuzma shared his thoughts on his Los Angeles Lakers career before the start of the 2020 NBA final series:
“I could have been at home enjoying myself right now… to be here, big trade… and decide to put me in the mix to try to win a championship. I’m very thankful,” he said, via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk.
Since the beginning of the 2019/2020 NBA season, the Lakers have traded Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart for Anthony Davis of the New Orlean Pelicans.
This season, Kuzma was also involved in multiple trade rumors but stayed in the Lakers roster and feels extremely happy about the possibility to win an NBA championship in his third season.
