Previously considered the best player in this draft, Anthony has tumbled down draft boards due to injury and inconsistent play for the Tar Heels.
A natural leader, Anthony could come in straight away and be the secondary play-maker the purple and gold desperately need.
When locked in he can also shoot the hell out of the ball and can get
volcanic from the 3-point line.
Having Cole Anthony alongside Danny Green in the back-court would give the Lakers potentially their point guard of the future who isn’t afraid to take big shots, maintaining cap space for Giannis Antetokounmpo, and continuing to win is what the Lakers value most.
If the Lakers keep Markieff Morris next season, they have a ready-made
replacement to stand in and take Kuz’s minutes…
Kyle Kuzma started his Los Angeles Lakers career with so much promise, he
looked a Laker from day one. Confident shooter, hard worker, and fan favorite, but as time has gone on in Los Angeles and moves made to benefit the Lakers, not Kuzma, it has become more apparent that maybe a change of scenery is best for both the Los Angeles Lakers and Kyle Kuzma at this point.
