Kuzma’s uneven play has fueled speculation that the Lakers may look to move him for a more team-friendly part. That seems unlikely, however. Kuzma is under an extremely team-friendly contract, earning just under $2 million this season and about $3.5 million in ’20-21. That limits the salary level of the players the Lakers can absorb in return. More importantly: Giving up on Kuzma this early isn’t something the Lakers should be interested in. Kuzma is just 24. He’s a proven NBA scorer. He’s experiencing a learning curve playing alongside James and Davis, but there simply is not enough evidence to declare the fit in L.A. a failure. Expect the Lakers to hold on to Kuzma in the hopes he develops into a reliable third scoring option this season—and beyond.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma has signed a multiyear extension of his footwear and apparel endorsement partnership with the GOAT app as he continues to expand his personal brand on and off the court. Short for “Greatest Of All Time,” the app was founded in 2015 and is now the world’s largest digital sneaker marketplace, with over 20 million users and 1 million listings across 164 countries.
Kuzma will also showcase GOAT’s newly launched apparel and streetwear selections through his pregame arena entry outfits. The GOAT app will feature a selection of more than 50 streetwear and luxury brands during its pilot apparel offering. “I’m really excited to continue my partnership with GOAT,” said Kuzma. “It’s been great working together and getting to show off a bit of my style through my favorite shoes and gear.”
Bryant still has informal conversations with Lakers’ controlling owner Jeanie Buss, general manager Rob Pelinka, LeBron James and young player Kyle Kuzma. He attended two Lakers games this season and attracted attention from NBA stars and fans alike. Yet, Bryant maintained he has “zero” involvement with his former team and has higher aspirations than chasing nostalgia.
As the trade deadline approached a year ago, the Lakers were holed up at their hotel next to Boston Common. For Kuzma, it was a whirl. He had been offered up in trade packages as part of the Lakers pursuit of Anthony Davis and spent the hours before tipoff against the Celtics at TD Garden watching the clock and scanning social media. “That was a weird day,” Kuzma said Monday. “Before trade deadline it was weird, you knew something was going to happen but you didn’t know what was going to happen. But like after the deadline it was like you’ve got to play a game.”
