Kyle Kuzma Signs 3-year Extension with the Los Angeles Lakers

Kyle Kuzma Signs 3-year Extension with the Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed Kyle Kuzma to a three-year, $40 Million dollar extension with a player option in 2023-24, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

In his first three seasons with the Lakers, Kuzma put up 16 points and 5.5 rebounds per game and has shown flashes of being a solid role-player. Last season however, Kuzma was asked to take a smaller role than he had played in the past after the Lakers acquired Anthony Davis. As a result, Kuzma played fewer minutes and took less shots than he had in his entire career and his productivity suffered.

In the 2019-20 NBA season Kuzma averaged career lows in points, rebounds, assists and field goal percentage.

Coming off their Finals victory, the Lakers are expecting Kuzma to take a leap going into his fourth season and the preseason may be showing off his growth. In the Lakers four preseason games in 2020, Kuzma averaged 17.5 points and shot over 41 percent from behind the 3-point line.

Kuzma has the size and skillset to be a valuable contributor in the NBA, his success with the Lakers will likely be determined by his ability to learn and accept his role as they look to repeat and win the 2021 NBA Finals.
