The Indiana Pacers need a power forward. Kyle Kuzma needs to play for a franchise that has a hope of winning in the near future. At face value, it seems like a match made in heaven.

There are multiple rumors that Kuzma may be available, although some new reports are that Washington continues to try and communicate with other teams that they are hopeful to keep Kuzma for a longer period of time. Although, Marc Stein reported that Kuzma might be ready for a change of scenery.

That being said, Kuzma is the perfect player for the Pacers roster as currently constructed. Not only that, he’s not far from the timeline for the majority of the players on the roster. He has good size and speed, and naturally fits the power forward position. He also is able to play solid defense and can carry an offense if needed. The eye test would indicate that he would match nearly perfectly with Tyrese Haliburton and the high octane offense that is being run in Indy.

That being said, it will take a lot to get Kuzma away from the Wizards. But we think a trade like this could make it happen.
