A priori, the Bogdan Bogdanovic track is abandoned for the Lakers, since the management has chosen to extend Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the team’s 3rd best scorer in the Finals against the Heat. At the club since 2017, “KCP” is rewarded for this superb end of the season with a contract of 40 million over three years.
A few days ago, Caldwell-Pope chose to put an end to an $ 8.5 million season, and he therefore won his bet. Aged 27, the former back of the Pistons has the typical profile of “3-and-D” that teams have been snapping up for a few years, and his versatility allows him to defend in several positions.
For the Lakers, it helps stop the bleeding after the departures of Rajon Rondo, Dwight Howard or Avery Bradley, and the team has anyway managed a great offseason by recovering Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell, the two best substitutes of last season. All while retaining the qualities of external address and defense with Caldwell-Pope, but also the arrival of Wesley Matthews, who will take over the role of Danny Green.
