The New York Knicks have had exploratory conversations with the Los Angeles Lakers about forward Kyle Kuzma, according to Shams Charania.

Several contenders, namely the Lakers, have expressed interest in Marcus Morris of the Knicks.

Morris is shooting 43.9 percent from three-point this season and could provide some more consistent shooting that the Lakers need around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Morris’ contract may make it difficult for a potential deal to get done though.
