Caldwell-Pope agrees to one-year deal with Lakers

The Lakers get a very strong two-way player without handcuffing themselves in free agency down the line.

The fact that Caldwell-Pope reportedly agreed on Tuesday to a one-year deal worth $18 million with the Lakers is evidence Nets general manager Sean Marks made a strategic decision to preserve his future salary cap space.

Now, there aren't many options left for Caldwell-Pope, in terms of which team to sign with. The Pistons, who were expected to match any offer sheet that Caldwell-Pope signed, now seem to be heading in a different direction with their latest acquisition of Bradley, who will take Caldwell-Pope's spot at shooting guard.

The one-year deal means Caldwell-Pope will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Lakers weren't in the picture, but now they have more young talent to play with their even younger core next season as LaVar Ball continues to profess that son Lonzo is carrying the team to the playoffs.

Caldwell-Pope was among the top talents remaining on the free agent market after spending his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Detroit Pistons. He's now the Los Angeles Lakers beat writer for Sports Out West.

Also playing are Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood and Thomas Pieters. "It's going to be unbelievable playing with Jon Rahm". Beginning the day tied for the lead alongside Im, Rahm holed out from 150 yards to eagle the par-five fourth and move two ahead.

Caldwell-Pope has made significant strides as a lockdown defender in the past few seasons, and he has continued to work on his offensive game. As our own Jonathan Adams broke down, the new-look Lakers roster features two new faces projected in the starting lineup and an interesting amount of depth as well.

Caldwell-Pope averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and a career-high 2.5 assists in 76 games last season with the Pistons.

What Would Rondo Bring to the Lakers? Jordan Clarkson should go back to his sixth man role with Caldwell-Pope in the fold.

Again, he would be a great fit on this young Lakers team.

This deal checks all the needs the Lakers were looking for, and able to do so without risking more than one year's cap space.
