The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a new deal with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
The deal is for three-years, worth $40M, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Caldwell-Pope declined his player option with the Lakers, worth $8.5M, and became a free agent. However, he decided to remain with the defending champions.
Third year for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Lakers contains a partial guarantee, sources say. The deal gives him a $15M average salary over next two seasons and $68M guaranteed over five years — and last year’s championship ring soon. https://t.co/LssARAoEpV
