Nets Miss Out in Caldwell-Pope Sweepstakes

NBA Free Agency: Where should Kentavious Caldwell-Pope sign?

General manager Rob Pelinka has said the Lakers are firmly committed to preserving enough cap space in 2018 to sign two free agents to max contracts.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the Lakers and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope have agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal. They accomplish that by giving Caldwell-Pope a one-year balloon deal.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who was a restricted free agent when free agency started, now sits atop of the board as an unrestricted free agent since the Pistons renounced his rights after trading for Avery Bradley. While point guard D'Angelo Russell is now long gone, it's expected to be the Lonzo Ball show for the Lakers, with Brook Lopez being a nice addition inside for the team. Caldwell-Pope is an excellent shooter with a soft touch and is coming off his best season shooting the three (35 percent). The Los Angeles Daily News' Mark Medina tweeted Tuesday that the Lakers "expressed serious interest" in Rondo and plan to follow up with him.

With the Bradley acquisition, things didn't come down to that and the Pistons gained financial flexibility as well as roster flexibility to play some of their younger players.

Again, he would be a great fit on this young Lakers team. He averaged 11.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 314 career contests since being selected by the Pistons with the eighth overall pick of the 2013 draft.

What Would Rondo Bring to the Lakers? If he continues to improve his 3-point shot, he could become one of the NBA's better two-way players.

Nwaba had been playing in Summer League with the Lakers, showing fortitude as one of the team's strongest players. By many projections, he was in line possibly to get a maximum offer of four years and $106 million from another team, which the Pistons would have been able to match. Time will tell, but both players could carve out nice roles with the Lakers in 2017-18.
