According to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, the Los Angeles Lakers offered small forward Kyle Kuzma to the New Orleans Pelicans for point guard Jrue Holiday before making the move for point guard Dennis Schroder.

“From what I understand, there was interest in Jrue Holiday on the Lakers’ side ahead of Dennis Schröder with a similar package, but with Kuzma in it as well. … So I know that, on some level, they’d be willing to move him. Like, if it was a significant upgrade,” Pincus said on the “Locked on Lakers” podcast, via Lakers Daily.

Last season, Kuzma averaged 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game, while shooting at 43.6 percent from the floor and 31.6 percent from three.
