In negotiations with the Lakers to extend his contract, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has finally reached an agreement with his team. A news that seems to have pleased LeBron James, very happy to be able to count on KCP for the years to come.
With many files to manage since the beginning of the free agency, the Lakers sometimes have to face setbacks. This is the case of Dwight Howard, who went to the 76ers after a huge mess. From day one, there is also the case Kentavious Cadlwell-Pope, eager to recover a big contract after his performances in the playoffs.
When a player is confident and asks for a big contract, negotiating is never easy. This was confirmed this Saturday since according to ESPN, the talks were quite complicated, even more so when the player’s agent is named Rich Paul. Luckily for everyone, a deal was reached overnight, according to Shams Charania.
