NBA rumors: LA Lakers ‘discussed’ trading Kyle Kuzma for Buddy Hield, Per Shams Charania

Hield would be an intriguing addition to the Lakers. Although he has yet to earn his first All-Star recognition, his possible arrival in Los Angeles would help them improve their performance on the offensive side of the court and ease the burden on James’ shoulders in terms of scoring and creating plays.

It would give the Lakers a very reliable third-touchdown option behind James and Davis, as well as a decent playmaker and elite three-point shooter. Last season, he averaged 16.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 40.6 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from beyond the arc, according to ESPN.
