Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is now a Los Angeles Laker.
The former Detroit Pistons guard had his rights renounced by the team that drafted him earlier in July After the Pistons traded for Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley. As the young shooting guard looked to sign a new deal it appears the market for Caldwell-Pope was not quite what he expected.
But according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Caldwell-Pope will sign a deal for just one year at $18 million with the Lakers.
While this deal probably wasn’t quite what Caldwell-Pope’s camp was expecting, it also perhaps is telling for what the Lakers expect Paul George to do after his one season in Oklahoma City is up.
