Lakers Sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope To One-Year Deal
Jul 13, 2017, 00:20
They need to add depth at point guard somehow, and getting Rondo on a one-year deal which would leave Los Angeles plenty to work with during 2018 free agency would be ideal.
Caldwell-Pope also is a strong two-way player who is expected to improve the Lakers' defensive competence.
Signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to just a one-year deal gives the Lakers some flexibility for the future since they aren't investing in him for the long-term.
The Lakers, albeit under previous management, have experience doing this as they waived former point guard Kendall Marshall in a similar move.
The Los Angeles Lakers have already begun a mass overhaul of their roster from the 2016-17 season. In four seasons with the Pistons, he averaged 11.7 points in 314 games. With the Lakers last season, the shooting guard averaged six points and 3.1 rebounds per game.
The Lakers President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson, seems to be highly confident in his new young core and has been actively involved since being hired for the position this year.
Hopefully the Lakers don't ruin this by signing Rajon Rondo, although that appears to be their goal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. No matter what happens, the Lakers added a young, talented shooting guard to help Ball's transition to the National Basketball Association. It is believed he will play a significant role on a rising team. A one-year deal would be ideal for the Lakers, but he'd also be a great backup option for a longer-term deal if the team can't add a big name free agent or two next summer. If the things work out the way both sides are hoping to, Caldwell-Pope might be in Lakers uniform for more than one season.
This deal makes him one of the top 10 highest-paid shooting guards in the league, according to ESPN.
National Basketball Association players will nearly always gamble on themselves given the opportunity, and given KCP's youth (just 24), the role he so ably fills as a 3-and-D player and the potential he has to take another big leap forward, it's hard to fault his reasoning.
