The Los Angeles Lakers made headlines over the weekend when the team traded for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.
Los Angeles shipped Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round picks to the Pelicans for the six-time All-Star.
One of the key names NOT involved in the trade was Kyle Kuzma.
The Lakers reportedly refused to put Kuzma in trade talks – but now Lakers fans might be wishing he had been.
Kuzma has been very active on social media, teasing fans with his posts. Earlier today, the young Lakers forward posted a photo of him working out with Kawhi’s Leonard’s trainer on Instagram.
Not long after, he took to Twitter with a bevy of eye emojis. Even Kuzma’s mom got in on the action.

Oh, and he also changed his Twitter avatar to a picture of him guarding Kyrie Irving – who has also been mentioned as a possible target for the Lakers.
So what does it all mean?
Unfortunately for Lakers fans, Kuzma is probably just having fun at their expense. However, the Lakers are making moves to open enough cap space to land another star, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Stay tuned for the latest ahead of the NBA draft.
