Kyle Kuzma reacts to Alex Caruso leaving LeBron James, Lakers
Kyle Kuzma, who was recently traded to the Washington Wizards in the Russell Westbrook deal, couldn’t be any happier for his brother and former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Alex Caruso after the crafty guard got paid.
Caruso is leaving LeBron James and the Lakers after he agreed to a four-year, $37 million deal with the Chicago Bulls at the start of free agency on Monday. Upon seeing the news and the deal, Kuzma quickly took it to Twitter to send his congratulatory message to the playmaker.
Kuz also made sure to let his ex-Lakers teammate know that he would be the one paying their next “tee time.”
For what it’s worth, Alex Caruso obliged:
Love brotha 🙏🏼😂 I got us !!

Caruso will certainly be missed not only by his former teammates but also by Lakers fans. He established himself as a fan favorite in his four years in a Purple and Gold uniform, and there’s no doubt he worked hard to earn his minutes and place in the rotation.
Known primarily as a defensive menace, Caruso put up 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game throughout his stay in LA. He also shot 42.9 percent from the field and 37.7 percent from deep. His chemistry with LeBron James was also undeniable, as the two paired up with several highlight plays after The King joined the team in 2018.
It will be interesting to see when Kyle Kuzma and Alex Caruso will have their tee time. Of course, everyone wants to see whether LeBron will be there!
