Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Signs New Three-Year Deal

The championship Los Angeles Lakers are bringing back a key piece as the team has signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a new three-year deal worth $40 million. This marks another order of business taken care of by Lakers management as the team tries to run it back.

The sharp-shooting 'KCP' is important for the Lakers as he helps space the floor for LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The kick-out option made 38.5% of his threes last season. 

Originally drafted 8th overall by the Detroit Pistons, Caldwell-Pope spent four seasons in Motown before making his new home in LA. Turns out he'll be enjoying the weather in California for a few more seasons.

The ring doesn't hurt either.
