Kyle Kuzma made headlines when he changed his hair color. There was also a lot of talk surrounding his name when NBA YoungBoy tried to holler at his girl.
But Kuzma has recently been in the news because there was talk that he was going to be traded by the Los Angeles Lakers -- perhaps to the Knicks for Marcus Morris. The NBA trade deadline was yesterday, and Kuzma remains a Laker.
He commented on dealing with all of the deadline chatter when he was asked if the trade-talk bothered him.
"Nope,” he said. “Just play my role. Come in, play with energy. Crash the boards every time. When I get the ball, just make the best of it. There’s no pressure. The media people they may try to make those extra pressures on you, but I trust my teammates, and I trust what we got going on here. I’m just trying to play my role.”
Do you think the Lakers made a good decision keeping Kuzma?
