Nets, Lakers among top teams who could sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Posted July 09, 2017

The Pistons also finalized a trade that sent Marcus Morris to the Celtics for Avery Bradley, an established two-way shooting guard.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is now free to sign with any National Basketball Association team after the Pistons renounced his rights Friday, ESPN reported. Newcomer Avery Bradley is set to make roughly $8.8M this upcoming season before becoming a free agent himself, so the Pistons have a year to figure out if they see Bradley part of their long-term plans. The Lakers have serious interest too, if Caldwell-Pope is willing to accept a one-year deal to preserve the franchise's salary-cap space next year.

ESPN's Bobby Marks noted the only other teams with cap space for the time being are the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings. The Knicks will presumably sign Tim Hardaway Jr.as the Hawks are not expected to match the offer sheet.

Brooklyn appears the most likely landing spot for Caldwell-Pope, assuming the Wizards match the offer sheet the Nets gave Otto Porter. The decision to renounce his rights frees up some money for Detroit, with Caldwell-Pope's qualifying offer being worth $4,958,374.
