With the 6'8" Kuzma joining the group, size won't be an issue for a lineup that already included LeBron James (6'9"), Anthony Davis (6'10") and JaVale McGee (7'0"). Danny Green will presumably be the only guard on the floor for Los Angeles when the ball tips.
Trudell noted the Lakers "like how Kuz is playing and want to see what that group looks like," referring to the four-forward attack.
Since the NBA's restart last month in Orlando, Florida, Kuzma is averaging 13.8 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 41.9 percent from beyond the arc.
His three-point shooting is vastly improved compared to earlier in the year. He had connected on only 29.7 percent of his long-range attempts prior to the NBA suspending the season in March.
Even with Kuzma's improvement, CBSSports.com's Sam Quinn questioned whether Monday's experiment will pan out:
The Lakers have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Their three-game losing streak may not be too worrisome since LeBron James showed during his second run with the Cleveland Cavaliers his teams often save their best basketball for the playoffs.
Now is the time for Vogel to experiment with any new wrinkles to his lineups to see what works and what doesn't ahead of the postseason.
