The Lakers didn’t get Kyle Kuzma and Kentavius Caldwell Pope recipients
The Los Angeles Lakers are ready to regain the championship until they do not, and now LeBron James, Anthony Daves and his team are scrambling to add some firepower to their lineup, despite the limited cap space.
Enter the much-maligned Kyle Kuzma and Kentavios Caldwell Pope.
The Lakers desperately need a scorer and organizer to become the third round of the James Davis machine, but neither Kuzma nor Caldwell Pope has worked. Now the Lakers are seeking to trade one of them or two.
In the WOJ and Lowe show, Adrian Wojnarowski said that it is difficult to buy the pair in Los Angeles.
“Almost every team I have contacted in the league has got a combination of Kurtz and KCP; sometimes they are two and one, which will not allow them to return to a point guard like Dennis (Schroder). So I think, listen, he has the opportunity to choose Chicago and New York again, and I still think there is a deal that will allow him to stay with the Lakers.

Since LeBron joined the Lakers, Kuzma has been working hard to find his place in the Lakers.
This 26-year-old forward This season, he averaged 20.8 minutes per game, 12.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists. The rookie season averaged 16.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
Kurz devoted himself to rebounding this season and did his best to contribute, but the fourth-year player failed to have a strong influence on the team.
CommScope This season, he averaged only 9.7 points per game, and his first year with the Lakers averaged 13.4 points per game.
Hilder, 28, averaged 16.6 points per game for the Kings last season and made 31.9% of his 3-pointers.
If Kurz and KCP finally come to Sacramento, they will be reunited with Los Angeles coach Luke Walton when each player joins the team.
Kurz currently has one 3-year $40 million contract Renewed with the Lakers, but changes in the environment may bring miracles to his data and future income.
