Kyle Kuzma is likely to be the second highest rated player for the Washington Wizards

Coming off a career year, Kyle Kuzma is set to receive the highest rating he has ever had from 2K. In his two seasons with the Washington Wizards, he has seen career highs in every major statistical category, those being points, assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks per game.

This last season in particular saw him average 21.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 0.6 steals per game, all of which are career highs. His statistical output during his two seasons in DC are All-Star caliber, but he just hasn’t been on a strong enough team.

As a Wizard, he has produced 19.1 points, 3.6 assists, 7.9 rebounds, 0.6 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game. Every single number is an improvement from his time with the Los Angeles Lakers with points, rebounds, and assists all being drastically better. He has even held the same level of efficiency.

While he likely won’t be getting an 85, placing him at an 84 seems fair to me. He’ll be taking a larger role and definitely took a step forward last season.
