The Lakers and Kings have discussed a trade centered on Sacramento shooting guard Buddy Hield, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.Buddy Hield

Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma has been part of the proposed package, Charania reported, as Kuzma continues to draw interest from several teams.

The Lakers are still seeking a strong third wheel to play alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and have been linked to everyone from Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry to Spurs shooting guard DeMar DeRozan to even Wizards guard Russell Westbrook and Suns point guard Chris Paul.

Hield, 28, averaged 16.4 points, 4.7 points and 3.6 assists, but shot just 41 percent from the field, in 71 games.

Kuzma, 26, averaged 12.9 points and 6.1 boards in 68 appearances, mostly off the bench.

One thing we do know is both teams are looking to tinker with their rosters, as the Lakers are coming off a loss in the first round of the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Kings haven’t even made it in 15 years.
