BIOGRAPHY

Kyle Kuzma currently plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. 

Born on July 24, 1995 in Flint, Michigan, he is listed at 6' 10" and weighs 221 lbs. 

Kuzma went to high school at Bentley (MI). After high school, he committed to play for Utah where his talents went widely unnoticed by casual fans.

This was highlighted to a much larger degree come the 2017 NBA Draft. During it, Kyle Kuzma slid all the way to the No. 27 overall pick, actually chosen by the Brooklyn Nets before a deal sent him to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers.

After a hot start to his career, Kuzma was forced into a bit more of a rotational role after LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Purple and Gold, Despite that, given where he was selected in the NBA Draft, he’s exceeded all original expectations.

Off the hardwood, Kuzma often catches shade from social media users who suggest he’s only a “name” in the NBA because he began his career playing for the league’s most important team.

He’s only played for one team since his NBA career. That’s been the Los Angeles Lakers since 2017; though he’s finding his name increasingly attached to trade rumors.
