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.
Feb 13 - 10:53 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points with two assists and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes in Sunday's 102-101 victory over the Raptors.

KCP struggled with his shot tonight, going 8-of-22 from the field and 2-of-12 from beyond the arc, but sunk in a game-winning 3-pointer. The Pistons came in ranked 27th in 3-point percentage this season, and as a team they went just 8-of-31 from behind the arc tonight. These kind of cold streaks are to be expected from KCP, but fantasy owners should hang on to him, as he will eventually get it going.
Feb 12 - 8:40 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was back in double-figures on Monday, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes of action.

KCP made only 4-of-11 field goals, but two of his makes came from downtown. He's been maddeningly inconsistent of late, following up Wednesday's career-high 38-point outburst with a combined 18 points in his next three games, but owners should hang in there. He's a mid-round value on the season and his recent extreme swings should balance out before long.
Feb 6 - 11:10 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored four points with two rebounds in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

And he's cold again. After his career-high 38 points on Wednesday, Caldwell-Pope has just six points combined in his last two. This isn't the first time he's done something like this with respects to extremes, but this has the highest magnitude. He is still a hold in standard leagues.
Feb 4 - 10:27 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored two points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 37 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

What goes up, must come down? Caldwell-Pope is coming off a career-high 38 points, and now that game has been pretty much diluted with four ugly games since returning from his injury. In those five, he averaged 15.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.4 treys on 36.4 percent from the field. He's piling up the steals and treys, so his owners can't complain.
Feb 4 - 12:39 AM

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has the potential to become a "real good scorer."

"Is he going to be a guy who’s going to average 24 points per game? He’s young, so anything’s possible," Van Gundy said. "I don’t know if I would bet heavily on that, but he can score. I think he’s a guy who can be a 16-18 point a night scorer. He’s been a little more consistent this year. He’s shooting the three at close to 40 percent." KCP is looking at a significant raise in his near future and was already having an impressive season before erupting for a career-high 38 points on Wednesday with eight 3-pointers, four rebounds, four steals and one assist.
Feb 2 - 10:11 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope lit up the Pelicans on Wednesday with a career-high 38 points, making 12-of-18 shots with eight 3-pointers, four rebounds, four steals and one assist.

Welcome back, KCP. The Pistons sharp-shooter had been slumping, shooting a combined 11-of-41 in his previous three games, but the Pelicans' defense took care of that issue tonight. He's racking up 3-pointers and steals, with a trickle of boards and assists, so even when he's not erupting for 30+ points he's still a sneaky fantasy play.
Feb 2 - 12:06 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit just 5-of-16 shots, 2-of-7 3-pointers and 6-of-8 free throws for 18 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes of Monday's 113-109 loss to the Celtics.

KCP has been back for three games from a shoulder injury and tonight was easily his best one, as he scored just five points on Saturday against the Heat. His shot is broken right now, as he's hit just 11-of-41 shots in his three games since returning, but you have to think his shot will start falling sooner than later. He'll try to shoot his way out of the slump starting on Wednesday against the Pelicans.
Jan 30 - 11:28 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored five points and shot 2-of-11 from the field in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

He played 34 minutes and added one assist, one steal and one triple. KCP just recently returned from a left shoulder injury (his non-shooting shoulder), so he's likely still shaking off the rust. KCP should bounce back and is worth deploying in a four-game Week 15.
Jan 28 - 11:08 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returned from a five-game absence with a shoulder injury and started, finishing with 14 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer on 4-of-14 shooting in 37 minutes on Monday.

His shot was a little rusty but if you rolled the dice and started him this week, it looks like the move should pay off. The Pistons are somehow off until Saturday, which should give KCP plenty of time to get ready for the Heat.
Jan 23 - 11:50 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) is starting as expected on Monday vs. the Kings.

He made it through pre-game warmups just fine and there are no indications that he will be limited tonight. Season-long owners can activate KCP in lineups, but keep in mind that the Pistons only play twice in Week 14. Reggie Bullock will return to the bench and Stanley Johnson will lose most of his value as well.
