Earlier this offseason, Kyle Kuzma was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Washington Wizards. It was an unfortunate ending to his tenure with the franchise.

Kuzma became a fan favorite in Los Angeles in 2018, earning All-Rookie First Team honors. His role with the Lakers changed once they acquired LeBron James and Anthony Davis, but he proved in 2020 that he could make an impact on a championship team.

Although it must have been difficult for Kuzma to leave the Lakers this offseason, he said he remains on great terms with the rest of the team.
