What is Kyle Kuzma's net worth? Power forward agrees to 3-year, $40m contract extension with LA Lakers
His contract extension might allow Kuzma to become a free agent when he's 28
It does look like Kyle Kuzma's recent pre-season efforts paid off after it was reported that he and the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed on a three-year deal worth $40 million. The news was reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, who also added that his deal was one of a kind non-max rookie extension. The site reckoned this would allow Kuzma to become a free agent when he's 28. With this, all eyes now are on how much Kuzma actually makes in a year.
According to celebrity net worth, Kuzma's net worth is estimated to be $3 million, which will now rise considering his latest deal with the reigning NBA champions. In his first three seasons with the Lakers, he started in 114 games and averaged 16 points, however, his previous season was quite average. His 2019-20 season saw him average 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. This time around, there is a remarkable change as he played in all the pre-season games against the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns.
The Lakers pipped the Phoenix Suns 112-107 in their third pre-season game and it was Kuzma leading from the front with 23 points, three rebounds and two assists. The news of Kuzma's extension meant some pressure off according to his teammate, Anthony Davis.
"I mean, it's good for him," teammate Anthony Davis said Sunday, according to ESPN. "You don't have that contract anxiety for the whole year. Now that it's out of the way, you can go out there and play, which he was doing anyway. He was having a great preseason. He's been playing great for us in the bubble and all of last year.
"He's locked in. He made a great jump on both ends of the floor. So, it's good for him. We're excited to have him here. I know he's excited to be here. And he's a champion. You deserve it. I'm glad that the Lakers were able to work something out with him to be able to allow him to just go out there and play and not worry about contracts for the rest of the season."
