The Los Angeles Lakers rookie, who played at the University of Utah from 2014-17, reportedly received $9,500 according to documents obtained by Yahoo! Sports. Kuzma is included on a balance sheet titled “Loan to Players” that showed accounts through the end of 2015. Kuzma’s mother, Karri, denied the report. “I never knew anything about it,” she told the Deseret News. Priority Sports, Kuzma’s current agency, was aware of the allegations but declined to discuss specifics. “We don’t have anything to say, if it’s commented on, it’ll come from him,” said a representative.
At Utah, Kuzma’s former coach Larry Krystkowiak and athletics director Dr. Chris Hill released statements on the matter. “This situation came to my attention this morning, and I have absolutely no knowledge about it,” Krystkowiak said. “At this point, these are allegations. I know we run a clean program and my complete focus will be getting our squad ready for our game against USC.”
How much has your life changed since you’ve become a Laker. I’ve talked to a lot of Lakers over the years about their wild stories. I know it becomes tough to go out, you have crazy fan interactions, you suddenly have celebrity friends and things like that. What’s the craziest thing about your life now? Kyle Kuzma: I’d say it’s the people I’ve gotten the chance to meet. It’s not like it’s on a daily basis, but I get to meet famous people very often. It’s crazy being cool with guys like Drake and Floyd Mayweather and so on and so forth – all of these prestigious people. Getting the opportunity to meet them and then befriend them too has been pretty cool.
