Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was quiet on Wednesday, going 2-of-4 from the field for five points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.
KCP simply wasn't involved offensively tonight, and his usage should jump vs. the Magic on Friday. Detroit is now 3-11 in the second game of back-to-back sets this season, which is the worst mark in the NBA. Tonight's setback leaves them a full game behind the No. 8 seed Heat, with the Bulls breathing down their neck just one game back. Mar 22 - 10:38 PM

The New York Post is reporting that pending free agent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be a top target of the Nets this summer.

Caldwell-Pope will be a restricted free agent, so the Pistons will have the right to match any offer he receives. However, the Nets will have more than $30 million in cap space this offseason and can make KCP a very lucrative offer, up to $103 million over four years. Moving to Brooklyn would be a boon to KCP's fantasy value, as the Nets play at an incredibly fast pace and he would become a focal point of Brooklyn's offense.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope got hot in 33 minutes vs. the Suns, scoring 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting with five 3-pointers, eight assists and three rebounds.

KCP turned it over just once tonight, and this is easily his best game of the month. He shot no better than 37.5 percent in his previous four games, but tonight's eruption is a reminder of his upside. He's holding top-100 value (9-cat) this season on the strength of his scoring (14.0), threes (2.1) and steals (1.2), with a dash of assists (2.6) and low turnovers (1.1).
Mar 19 - 7:26 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finished Wednesday's game with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting, two 3-pointers, one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes.

KCP took a hard spill the the first half and appeared to hurt his shooting elbow, but it didn't cost him any time. He didn't start the second half tonight, but it looks like that was due to a problem with his uniform. Barring a pessimistic update, we're leaving him off the injury report.
Mar 16 - 12:39 AM

Stanley Johnson started the second half for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Wednesday.

It was just a uniform malfunction for KCP, so it's not injury related. Caldwell-Pope is having a bad game right now.
Mar 15 - 8:51 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored two points with one rebound, one block and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Yikes. He's coming off a six-point dud after a 26-point Saturday. Caldwell-Pope has been all over the place this season, but he does have eighth-round value per game on the season and is one of the most durable players in the NBA. He should hang around that value going forward.
Mar 8 - 11:30 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope took advantage of a favorable matchup in a win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 26 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He was great on both ends of the floor. The second unit has been pushing for more minutes, but it's not going to be affecting Caldwell-Pope. While he has been inconsistent, KCP has averaged 19.6 points, 4.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 treys since the break. He's likely going to be a top 75-100 guy going forward.
Mar 4 - 9:11 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made 2-of-11 from the field for five points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

We can probably just chalk this one up to KCP playing 47 minutes on Tuesday night. Plus, Caldwell-Pope has been a disaster on his back-to-back games, making just 33.3 percent in his previous nine games without rest. Keep that in mind the next time you think about using him in DFS on no rest.
Mar 1 - 11:12 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finished with 18 points, three assists, three rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist in Sunday's loss against the Celtics.

KCP has been stroking it from behind the arc lately, connecting for 12 triples over his past three outings. He has been a rather streaky player for his fantasy owners, and right now he is enjoying a hot stretch with 22.3 points and 5.7 rebounds over the past three games to crush his season averages. As such he has been a solid bargain in daily formats.
Feb 26 - 9:50 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went off on Thursday, hitting 11-of-25 shots and seven 3-pointers on his way to 33 points, nine rebounds and three assists in 43 minutes of a 114-108 overtime win against the Hornets.

This wasn't a season high for KCP, but it was easily one of the best games of his career, as he and Kemba Walker went head-to-head down the stretch and matched either other with big shot after big shot. KCP's 3-pointer with 18 seconds left ended up sending the game to overtime, where the Pistons coasted. Stan Van Gundy loves him and the trade deadline is over, so hopefully KCP will continue to play well over the last few weeks of the season.
Feb 23 - 10:29 PM

The Pistons are reportedly "welcoming offers" for Andre Drummond and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The report goes on to state that Detroit has been most aggressive in trade talks involving Reggie Jackson, whereas they have "not discouraged offers from interested teams" for Drummond and KCP. Stan Van Gundy has proven to be an opportunistic trade-maker, and the Pistons could make a move before the deadline, but right now there aren't any clear fantasy adds.
Feb 22 - 9:56 PM

The Pistons have been "open" to possibly trading Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Woj did add he doesn't think this will happen. He also said the Pistons "love" him and do want to try to sign him as a restricted free agent this summer, but the team likely doesn't want to pay him close to max money. With teams like the Nets having a lot of cap space, Caldwell-Pope could get a monster deal a la Allen Crabbe. For now, it would be a surprise to see KCP be traded.
Feb 22 - 2:12 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has reportedly received a lot of interest around the league.

KCP is one of Stan Van Gundy's favorites, so it's unlikely that another team out there will be able to match the asking price. Reggie Jackson or Andre Drummond could be moved, though.
Feb 21 - 4:56 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope bounced back on Wednesday vs. Dallas, scoring 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

This was a welcome sight for KCP's owners after he was limited to seven points on 2-of-10 shooting vs. the Bucks on Monday. He added five rebounds, one assist and two triples in tonight's win, and his outlook is safe as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline -- KCP isn't going anywhere and he's eyeing a massive contract extension with Detroit this summer. Keep rolling him out there for his triples and steals.
Feb 15 - 11:12 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit just 2-of-10 shots for seven points, three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes of Monday's 102-89 loss to the Bucks.

KCP went off for 38 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Feb. 1, but it's been a bit of a struggle ever since. He's scored in single digits in four of his last eight games and has hit just 24-of-78 shots over his last seven games. That's 31 percent shooting for those of you scoring at home, and while KCP's still worth owning, he's clearly struggling with his shot right now, despite getting 34 minutes a night.
