If we’re trading him while on his rookie deal it’d better be for a third star caliber promising young player of Kuzma’s level or better. Tatum? Good luck.
Patty Mills? Hell no.
Kuzma will make a whopping 1.9 mil this coming season. He averaged just under 19 pts 5.5 rebs for 1.7 last year.
He's the 323rd best-paid NBA player this year.
He was the 364th best-paid NBA player last year.
He's the 139th best-paid forward this year.
He was the 148th best-paid forward last year.
And there's a fair chance he will be even better this year. To a point I understand that there's a clamor to trade him away bec of some question marks about the PG situation. I like Caruso and he showed promise but he only has a career 62 games mostly garbage time. Rondo can pass and set up the offense but is a horrible combo with Lebron with his bad defense and awful touch. Cook and Daniels can definitely shoot but are also bad defenders and passers. Bradley played good defense under a well structured Boston team but struggled big time with the Clips. Most attribute it to injury, we'll see.
This team only need ONE, hopefully 2 of these players to play good defense and hit their 3pt shots this coming season. If I have to bet, I'm thinking Caruso. Bradley has a fair chance. Vogel and his staff must find ways to help these guys succeed with great nurturing, scouting etc.
