Kyle Kuzma hoping for a big deal

After helping the Lakers win the 2020 title over the Miami Heat in six games, Kuzma is looking to get paid handsomely by the Lakers. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Kuzma is expecting a “sizable deal” from the Purple and Gold. “Then you got Kyle Kuzma, who is extension eligible, still has a year left on his contract but is extension eligible,” Windhorst said on the Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective podcast, via Heavy. “And from what I understand, he is expecting a sizable deal, hoping for a sizable deal.”

Several clubs interested in Kyle Kuzma trade

After averaging 18.7 points a season ago, Kyle Kuzma adapted to a new role on these championship Lakers. He served as a scorer off the bench and flashed signs of his continued upside. Kuzma will be eligible for his rookie extension this offseason, and could discuss a new deal with the Lakers. The 25-year-old also could bypass an extension and use next season to continue elevating his value prior to restricted free agency. And then there is the option of a trade suitor with several interested clubs.
