Kyle Kuzma is a very interesting player hitting free agency this season. While he may be overlooked in many free agency classes, he has the potential to be one of the most impactful players in free agency this season. There are three teams that would be incredible fits for him.
In the 2022-23 NBA playoffs, it was clear that the lack of depth on the Phoenix Suns was detrimental to the team. It is likely that the team attempts to move the large contracts of Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton and use the freed-up cash to better round out their roster.
Kyle Kuzma would be an incredible addition to the team. He would slide in perfectly to the small forward position with Devin Booker at shooting guard and Kevin Durant at power forward. Kuzma had the best scoring season of his career with the Phoenix Suns and also has the championship experience necessary to be a big contributor in the postseason.
The second team that could make a run for Kyle Kuzma in free agency this offseason is the Dallas Mavericks. If the Mavericks are able to retain Kyrie Irving on the roster, it is clear that the duo of Irving and Luka Doncic need defensive players around them to be successful.
During his time with the Washington Wizards, Kuzma was one of the best defenders on the team. While it would not be ideal for him to guard the opposing team’s best guard or wing player, he would be a great help in hiding Irving and Doncic on the defensive end. Along with this, he would be an elite third-scoring option for the team.
The final team that would be a very interesting fit for Kuzma is the Detroit Pistons. While Kuzma would not be competing for championships on this team anytime soon, he would be an incredible leader for the Pistons’ young roster. Along with this, he is a Michigan native, and signing with Detroit would allow him to be close to his family.
Despite the Pistons being one of the youngest teams in the league, if they are able to find a gem with the 5th overall pick and add Kuzma to the team, they would be more than capable of making their first playoff appearance since 2008.
