Wizards Tell Teams Kyle Kuzma Not Available In Trade 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 24, 2023 2:11 pm

The Washington Wizards trade of Rui Hachimura to the Los Angeles Lakers has many speculating about their roster plans moving forward. From all indications, those plans include keep Kyle Kuzma in Washington.


The Wizards have reportedly told interested teams that Kuzma is not available in trade discussions. That includes the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns, who have had various trade talks with Washington in recent weeks.


Kuzma hasn't committed to anything beyond this season, as far as his future goes. Kuzma holds a $13 million player option for next season that he'll surely decline. Signing an extension with the Wizards is likely off the table, because such a deal wouldn't pay him near his market value.
