We all know that the Washington Wizards are not having an amazing NBA season – again.
The team currently sits at the 10th team in the East with a painful 11-13 record and they have only won 1 of their last 6 games.
It’s a bit surprising to see them struggle because there are some powerful and talented players on the roster.

Kyle Kuzma has stepped it up this season, averaging 20.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists a game.
That is his best point average ever and some of the greatest numbers of his career.
This means that Kuzma is playing to the best of his abilities and has become an important part of the team.
He has also become a trade asset too.
Apparently, multiple teams are interested in acquiring Kuzma, including the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns, according to Shams Charania.
We don’t know how seriously the Wizards are taking any inquests about Kuzma but the fact that others are knocking at his door shows that he may be leaving DC soon.
Kuzma Continuing To Grow
One of the biggest complaints about Kuzma over the years has been his inconsistency, sometimes he’s hot and sometimes he’s cold.
He’s gotten much better at staying stable while in DC and this has surely attracted a few teams.
The Wizards might want to seriously consider any offers because they could get a good return for Kuzma and, frankly, they are struggling even with him on board.
The Wizards always look to be a work in progress and are seemingly constantly on the verge of trading away the whole team in hopes of rebuilding.
Therefore, we don’t know if this rumor about Kuzma will actually result in anything.
