He won his first ring after just a couple of seasons in the league when he and his Los Angeles Lakers took down the Miami Heat in the 2020 Finals.
But things quickly soured for the young star in LA and he was sent packing to the Wizards in a blockbuster trade for Russell Westbrook.
Since joining the Wizards, the spotlight has been mostly off of Kuzma but he’s been working hard – on and off the court.

Most recently, Kuzma tried on the role of model for New York Fashion Week, as he was spotted making his way down the runway in an outfit that will certainly never be appropriate for the basketball court.
It may be some time before Kuzma takes on more modeling jobs because he is a young man whose best days in the league may be ahead of him.
Then again, he will need to get his team in working order before that can be true.
Kuzma In The Capital
Since moving to DC, Kuzma has put up some of the best numbers of his career.
He has averaged 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists a game during the 2021-22 season.
Those are the best rebound and assist totals of his career, although the points are just shy of his 18.7 from the 2018-19 season.
So, Kuzma is arguably getting stronger in Washington but the team is still lacking in some huge ways.
They might get just a bit better in the upcoming season but things aren’t looking very good for the Wiz.
Something huge will have to happen to shake the squad up and Kuzma might be part of it.
As one of the team’s best players, he may ironically be on the trading block soon if Washington wants to make a major trade.
