Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is one of two familiar faces that Andre Drummond found when he joined the Los Angeles Lakers. The other one was Markieff Morris.

Drummond and Caldwell-Pope were teammates on the Detroit Pistons through 2013-2017. After the loss to the Miami Heat in which KCP led his team in scoring with 28 points, the Lakers center was asked about the development of his teammate over the years.

“Having that relationship with KCP and seeing how he is now from where he was when he got drafted in Detroit is night and day,” Drummond said.

“Defensively he’s still and incredible defender shooting-wise he’s gotten so much better and just his confidence off the dribble has been incredible for us. Tonight was a great game for him. Just sucks that we didn’t win the game.”
