2017 Free Agency: Lakers met with Kentavious- Caldwell Pope

The Lakers have been quiet so far in free agency, meeting a few players here and there. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Lakers have met with free agent guards Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Since the Caldwell-Pope hit the free agency market, a lot of suitors have been interested in acquiring the young wing including the Los Angeles Lakers. KCP would help the Lakers’ depleted backcourt tremendously. His defense and offensive versatility offer the Lakers a perfect starter to pair next to Lonzo Ball.

Last season with the Detroit Pistons, KCP averaged 14 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists. He also shot a career-high 35 percent from beyond the arch.

If KCP agrees to sign with the Lakers, expect the two parties to accept a short-term deal since the Lakers are still trying to have flexibility and spending power come next summer.
