The 2021 NBA offseason is shaping up to be an eventful one for the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers are expected to be very active on the trade market. Los Angeles has been linked to everyone from Bradley Beal to Damian Lillard to Russell Westbrook.
According to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Lakers and Kings have been discussing a notable trade.
Per the report, the Lakers could send forward Kyle Kuzma to the Kings in exchange for a package that includes Buddy Hield.

Several NBA teams have reportedly expressed interest in Kuzma, whose future in Los Angeles is up in the air.
The small forward had an excellent start to his NBA career in Los Angeles, though he’s often struggled to find his role playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Perhaps he would be better off in Sacramento, while a shooter like Hield could thrive alongside James.
The NBA’s 2021 offseason should be very eventful, with the Lakers likely in the middle of a lot of the discussions.
