With his 3-and-D skills, Caldwell-Pope was a valuable supporting player in the Lakers' run to the National Basketball Association championship this past season. According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, both the Lakers and Caldwell-Pope remain interested in getting a deal done, however, the most the Lakers can offer him is about $12 million, which makes it very hard to re-sign him.
The answer is three years for $40 million, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The New York Knicks are still looking for a way to use all their cap space, and appear to be pursuing a new option. Caldwell-Pope averaged 9.3 points, shooting.385 from beyond on the season. The Lakers, however, retain Caldwell-Pope's Bird rights.
He played a pivotal role for Los Angeles during the team's title run, shooting 37.8% from beyond the arc while averaging 10.7 points per game.
