The Los Angeles Lakers have signed free agent guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $18 million contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is heading west.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is another example of just how tight the market is in National Basketball Association free agency this year.
With the drafting of Duke shooting guard Luke Kennard, the Pistons viewed Caldwell-Pope as expendable and they rescinded the qualifying offer.

It said the developments could be seen either as a clever move by Merkel, or as her being "outfoxed" by leftist parties. One of his first acts as president was to withdraw the U.S. from a similar free trade deal with the Asia-Pacific region.
The Los Angeles Lakers were one of the last few remaining teams that still had a lot of salary cap space after the first wave of free agency.
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.
Rondo signed a two-year deal worth $28 million with Chicago last summer, but the Bulls released him on June 30 of this year after averaging under eight points and under seven assists per game. He averaged 11.9 points and 11.7 assists with six rebounds the season before with the Sacramento Kings, so there's no question he can still perform at a high level. Do they need to sign a veteran such as Rondo to help tutor Ball?
If Rondo does end up with the Lakers, he'd join a short list of players who were members of both the Celtics and Lakers in their careers. It's a risk, as with any gamble, because next year's market looks to be even tighter than this market was, which was already significantly less player-friendly than last year's. Jordan Clarkson should go back to his sixth man role with Caldwell-Pope in the fold.
