Is Kyler Kuzma Dating Kendall Jenner?

Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons' romance cooled off at the end of May. Jenner may now be dating another NBA player now since she was photographed hanging on a yacht with Los Angeles Lakers player Kyle Kuzma but their love is not romantic. "The two were hanging out over the holiday as friends," its source started. "They’ve run in the same circle for a while and there’s no romantic relationship between them. Kendall is enjoying being single after ending things with Ben." A second source close to Kuzma echoed the first source's point. "It's nothing," the source said of Kuzma and Jenner's relationship. Jenner spoke before in February about how fast she can lose interest while dating. It was a rare comment from her about the love life she largely chooses to keep private. "I know when I’m off it, and I get off it really easy," she said. "But it’s not just for no reason. Someone has to do something to make me off it. I think that especially because of the lifestyle that I live everything is so magnified and everyone wants to know things, especially about your love life. A lot of the relationships that I’m in, I’m in it, and I’m in it with that one person and I’m a very loyal person once I’m fully in it.”

Kyle Kuzma should not start in 2019

The Los Angeles Lakers have filled out the roster fairly quickly and now can confidently have Kyle Kuzma come off the bench for the team. The Los Angeles Lakers had an extremely thin roster while the team was waiting around for Kawhi Leonard‘s free agent decision. After Leonard chose the Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers went to work and have built a somewhat deep rotation. He will still get ample playing time off the bench and can thrive more in a sixth man role where he is the leading scorer with LeBron and Davis on the bench. Thrusting him into the starting lineup is going to make him the third or even fourth scoring option, which is going to hinder his scoring. Having Kuzma on the bench will give the Lakers two forward pieces off the bench alongside Dudley. Because as it stands right now, Avery Bradley would be the back-up small forward. Six-foot-two Avery Bradley is not a small forward. The best starting five would be Rajon Rondo/Alex Caruso (we prefer Caruso), Green, LeBron, Davis and Cousins with Kuzma as the sixth man and the array of other bench pieces swapping in and out. The Los Angeles Lakers do not have to reinvent the wheel on this one.
