The Washington Wizards aren’t entertaining trade offers around Kyle Kuzma, per Sam Amick, Anthony Slater and Fred Katz in The Athletic NBA Show (h/t HoopsHype).
“Everything you said about the Wizards exuding confidence in their ability to keep Kyle Kuzma is accurate. They have not entertained trade inquiries from people who would like to bring him aboard.”
Upon the departure of Rui Hachimura and his landing to the Los Angeles Lakers last month, the Wizards have shifted their focus of having Kuzma on a long-term viewpoint.
Kuzma, having a career year this 2022-23 with his 21.8 points average, is being projected to opt out his $13MM player option for next season and enter unrestricted free agency.
