After being rumored to various teams this week, Kyle Kuzma is staying in Washington D.C. after all.
Reports surfaced Friday afternoon that the forward and the Wizards have agreed to a four-year, $102 million deal to keep him with the franchise. The deal is suspected to be fully guaranteed with no options on the last year. After a career year, Kuzma cashes in big this offseason.
