Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is expected to decline his player option and become a free agent in the coming offseason.
Per Shams Charania, Caldwell-Pope will opt out of his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and test free agency.
However, the versatile guard and the Lakers have mutual interest to sign a new deal, yet several teams may express interest to acquire Caldwell-Pope.
“After establishing himself as a key player heading into next season, Caldwell-Pope is expected to decline his $8.5 million player option, sources said.
There’s significant mutual interest between Caldwell-Pope and the Lakers, but there will be some external suitors,” Shams Charania reports.
