Kyle Kuzma started the season off the pitch due to a physical problem, and only in recent games has he found more confidence and offensive pace, and would have a great sponsor in his teammate LeBron James. The Lakers have gotten good returns on that investment, but this season he has struggled to gain the ground lost from his injury suffered this summer with the United States of America. While Kuzma is a solid young piece, he's a poorer shooter and plays the four position, something Sacramento does not have any sort of need for.

The time crunch was on at that time, as ABC had already begun airing promos for the telecast even with no host announced. A year ago the Oscars went without a host after the Kevin Hart controversy and the ceremony ended up working out fine.
Without question, the Lakers would win this trade by a landslide if they can pull it off.
Kuzma has been coming off the bench for the Lakers, who may want to add a veteran for a playoff run. He is now coming off the bench and averaging just 11.8 points per game on the season.
