Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said that he thought his season with the Lakers was "the best season" of his NBA career.
Caldwell-Pope posted career-best marks in field goal percentage (42.6%), three-point field goal percentage (38.3%), three-point field goals (2.1) rebounds (5.2), and tied his career-high mark in steals (1.4), but he took a slight step back in scoring (13.4), assists (2.2), and free throw percentage (78.9%). It's anyone's guess where KCP winds up given the Lakers uncertain summer ahead, and it may again be a difficult free agent market for Caldwell-Pope to navigate in the search of a multi-year deal. A reunion with the Lakers isn't completely out of the question, though we're a long way from that potential scenario playing out. Apr 15 - 3:14 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) will not return on Wednesday.

It's an AC joint sprain and the severity isn't known yet, although X-rays were negative. KCP had himself a solid year on a one-year deal and he may have helped himself get a long-term deal, assuming this shoulder injury isn't bad.
Apr 11 - 10:53 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will play limited minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Lakers have no reason to push their veterans and KCP is heading into free agency, so he's probably more interested in staying healthy.
Apr 11 - 9:16 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points with six rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He did bang knees in the fourth quarter and went to the locker room, but Caldwell-Pope was available to return and checked in for overtime. KCP was playing 39.5 minutes per game in his previous two, and he should play a bunch as long as Brandon Ingram (concussion) is out. He's had a solid campaign on his one-year contract.
Apr 5 - 1:16 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 28 points with five rebounds, one assist, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Jazz during a 117-110 loss on Tuesday.

Besides his ejection game on Friday, KCP is logging huge minutes with 35-plus in each of his last nine other games excluding the ejection. Caldwell-Pope should see significant minutes the rest of the way and should be handling the ball more due to the injuries to Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram.
Apr 4 - 1:30 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was ejected from Friday's game against the Bucks after picking up two quick technical fouls.

KCP thought he was fouled while chasing down a rebound and he was not happy about the lack of a call. He was visually upset and eventually had to be held back by Brook Lopez just before he left the court. Caldwell-Pope finished with six points on 3-of-8 shooting, including 0-of-3 from behind the line, while posting three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 16 minutes before getting the gate.
Mar 30 - 11:41 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went for 18 points over 43 minutes in Saturday's 100-93 victory in Memphis.

Caldwell-Pope finished 5-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, while adding 4-of-4 from the free-throw line.

Mar 24 - 11:35 PM

KCP opened the game with guns blazing, going 5-of-5 from beyond the arc through the first quarter of action, and the hot 3-point shooting was a team-wide trend with the Lakers matching their season-high in trey-bombs with 17. Caldwell-Pope will continue to see major minutes and plenty of opportunity on offense with Josh Hart (hand) and Brandon Ingram (groin) watching from the sidelines.
Mar 22 - 11:15 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 20 points, six rebounds, two steals and one assist in 38 minutes on Sunday, making 7-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers.

Brandon Ingram (strained groin) has been ruled out for back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday, which ensures added minutes and usage for guys like KCP and Kyle Kuzma (14 points, 10 boards in 39 minutes). Caldwell-Pope hasn't fallen below 36 minutes in any of the Lakers' past six games, which is ridiculous, and he's peaking at an ideal moment for fantasy owners.
Mar 12 - 12:19 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 6-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in Monday's loss to the Blazers.

The Lakers are trying to win every night out and KCP is a huge part of what they're doing. He should be owned everywhere, obviously.
Mar 6 - 1:15 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went for 18 points and 13 rebounds over 43 minutes in Saturday's 116-112 win at San Antonio.

KCP hit 7-of-13 from the field, including 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while adding 1-of-1 from the free-throw line. He also chipped in with thee steals, two assists and just one turnover. Caldwell-Pope is on a six-game streak with at least two successful 3-pointers, and he has managed two or more steals in four of the past six outings. It seems like he has been around for a while, but remember he is just 25 years old.
Mar 3 - 11:56 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 4-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, a career-high 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in Monday's easy win over the Hawks.

KCP isn't going away and had his third double-double of the season, and second in his last four games. He's scored in double figures in four straight games and has played at least 30 minutes in seven straight. He should be held until the Lakers pull the plug on him, which might not even happen this season.
Feb 26 - 10:00 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said he's been more focused now that his legal issues are behind him.

"It was kind of hard with that situation I had, but now that’s behind me," KCP said. "I can focus on just one thing — that’s basketball. It’s been good just to be able to get my work when I need it and just be ready for games." KCP has played 30+ minutes in six straight games, scoring 14+ points in five of those contests including a 34-point game on Saturday with eight triples. With that said, it will be interesting to see how the Lakers handle his minutes in March and April since he has an expiring deal.

KCP remains a solid hold in most standard fantasy formats.
Feb 25 - 1:49 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 17 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

It's still unclear what his role is going to be after the break and it's possible he does lose some run to the younger players. It's also possible he loses his starting job at some point. Still, Caldwell-Pope is playing well enough to be held in standard leagues and his owners can just cross that bridge when they get to it.
