Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will now play for the Washington Wizards after getting traded by the Los Angeles Lakers.
The veteran guard took to social media and bid farewell to the Lakers, thanking everybody in the organization for the opportunity to play for the 17-time NBA champions.
“Who knew that a 1 year deal would turn into a 4 year run in the purple and gold. Thank you Magic, Jeanie, and Rob for believing in me. We are forever cemented in history with,” Caldwell-Pope wrote on Instagram.
The Lakers sent Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and the No. 22 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft in exchange for Russell Westbrook this offseason.
Caldwell-Pope spent the past four seasons with the Lakers and helped the team claim the 2020 NBA championship. In his four years with the Lakers, Caldwell-Pope averaged 11.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.
