A large haul in return for Kyle Kuzma

It would take quite a bit to make a run at Kyle Kuzma. And some Pacers fans might not be willing to pay the cost. However, if we want to try and get it to happen, a trade like this might get it done:

The cost initially seems high for many Pacers fans with a first-round pick as well as a recent first-round pick in Chris Duarte. It’s possible that the Pacers could negotiate a lower price point for Kyle Kuzma, but it’s entirely possible that Washington may need a bit more. Perhaps a second round pick or a pick swap in a future draft might be enough to get the deal done, especially if Washington feels that they will have some difficult years ahead.

TJ McConnell along with Chris Duarte add rotational pieces for the Wizards, with Duarte having some potential upside in future years. TJ is clearly about to run a second unit, as well as step into the prime role if needed.

But should the Pacers do a trade like this?
