Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma has blossomed since getting traded to the Washington Wizards this past season. His numbers went up since the end of December.
The 26-year-old forward is averaging 26.4 points, 11.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 38.3 minutes per game in January, which is his best in the NBA so far.
Recently, Kuzma joked that he feels like LeBron James and alluded to his own situation with the Lakers. “I’m feeling like LeBron lately. I told the guys to be careful with how they talk to me with the trade deadline coming up,” he said.
This season, Kuzma is averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3 assists in 33.4 minutes per game for Washington.
