Pistons renounce rights to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope after Bradley trade

Pistons renounce rights to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope after Bradley trade”

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is willing to ink a one-year deal, the Lakers would have significant interest in signing him to such a contract.

After acquiring Avery Bradley via trade, the Detroit Pistons announced that they are renouncing Caldwell-Pope, which means that he's up for grabs in the free agent market. He was too far down the priority list for the Celtics to be that team to offer him the contract he'll command, but the Pistons will get Bradley for a year and will have the opportunity to make him a big offer. The 24-year-old will have a robust market that could include the Brooklyn Nets, assuming the Wizards match Otto Porter's signing sheet, as well as the Los Angeles Lakers if he chooses to pursue a short-term deal.

Caldwell-Pope was a restricted free agent heading into this offseason, meaning that the Pistons could match any offer made to their former 2013 first-round pick by another team.

While picking up someone of Bradley's ilk could quiet naysayers, losing Caldwell-Pope after just four seasons is still a rather tough blow. He averaged 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 79 games with the Pistons last season.

Caldwell-Pope's pick-and-roll defense could still use some work, but considering he won't turn 25 until February and has proved capable of making developmental strides, he's a worthy gamble for teams in need of perimeter reinforcements.
