Sources: Lakers Talk With Jazz and Two Other Teams, But Still No Takers For Kyle Kuzma


There's no secret around the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers would like to unload Kyle Kuzma. Unfortunately for them, they have yet to find any takers. 

This is all in addition to their rejected offer to the Indiana Pacers that we reported on Tuesday. 

Today's prime rumor has the Lakers offering up their 26-year-old forward to the Utah Jazz in return for long-range bomber Joe Ingles.

The Lakers would send their No. 22 pick along with Kuzma in return for Ingles and No. 30. 

Another deal that's still on the table, according to The Athletic's Sam Amick, is a deal with the Sacramento Kings, that would bring Buddy Hield to L.A., while sending Kuzma and Montrezl Harrell upstate to Sacramento.  

The Lakers would love to unload Kuzma before the free agency period begins on Aug. 2nd, and they'll likely keep trying until something sticks.
