Another player of the Los Angeles Lakers is at the center of market rumors. Kyle Kuzma has been linked to several teams. Kuzma was included in the trade that would bring Davis to the Lakers, but then Los Angeles managed to hold back Kuzma. Now, the scenarios may change, but it must also be said that inserting the player in a trade is very difficult, having Kuzma still having the rookie contract.

The support of LeBron James

Kyle Kuzma started the season off the pitch due to a physical problem, and only in recent games he has found more confidence and offensive pace and would have a great sponsor in his teammate LeBron James. As reported by Sam Amick of The Athletic, James considers Kuzma to be an important player, whose offensive support will be crucial later in the season, and general manager Rob Pelinka would still be “reluctant” to see the wing start today.

James had already shown his support to Kuzma after the Christmas defeat against the Los Angeles Clippers, when a cryptic tweet, in response to a post critic against LeBron, of his athletic trainer Clint Parks had opened scenarios of disagreements between the two.
