Kuz is expected to join the Puma family.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma will reportedly be joining Puma’s ever-growing NBA roster ahead of the 2019-20 season.
Kuzma, who has been repping for Nike, specifically Team Kobe, is currently a free agent in the sneaker world, although it is expected that an official announcement with Puma is on the horizon. The New York Times’ Marc Stein reports that the two sides are “closing in” on a deal.
As mentioned, Kuzma has been rocking Nikes since entering the league in 2017 and he was recently featured as part of Undefeated’s Nike Kobe 4 Protro collection, which honored other “Team Kobe” guys such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Devin Booker and DeMar DeRozan.
If Kuz does indeed sign with Puma, he’ll join a stable of young stars that includes this year’s third overall draft pick RJ Barrett, as well as Kevin Knox, DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Michael Porter Jr. Puma also has a number of vets on their roster, including DeMarcus Cousins, Terry Rozier and Danny Green.
