Kyle Kuzma was the one player spared from the Los Angeles Lakers' young core this past summer when they traded for Anthony Davis, in large part because he was seen as being the No. 3 scoring option on this team. What's the difference you wonder?
The Lakers have begun listening to trade offers for Kuzma, The Athletic reported Sunday, and a potential return could be Kings sharpshooter Bogdan Bogdanovic, according to the New York Times. He has come off the bench in all but one game after taking over a starting job previous year. Heading into this last stretch of the season, the team has some huge personnel decisions to make. As our Shams Charania reported Friday, teams are monitoring his situation and wondering whether he can be had before the February 6 trade deadline.

But if the Lakers are able to turn Kuzma into Bogdanovic, the rest of the National Basketball Association will likely be steaming mad.
And ... we're off - sort of.

It's been a season-long run of performances even coach Ed Orgeron has said it's hard to step back and truly appreciate. Burrow's current pace projects him to finish with 5,580, which would be good for No. 5 all time in a single season.
There should be plenty more rumors regarding Kuzma, the Kings and Bogdanovic before the February 6 National Basketball Association trade deadline. If only because nothing of real interest has come their way - yet.
The question is whether or not it is worth giving up on Kuzma already. The Lakers bench laughed at the comment while Kyle Kuzma smiled.
Kuzma was drafted 27th a couple of years ago with a pick acquired from the Brooklyn Nets in the D'Angelo Russell deal to unload Timofey Mozgov's albatross contract. Rajon Rondo has played poorly this season and some feel as though the Lakers could get a good backup point guard in exchange for these three players.
