Rights renounced by Pistons

Rights renounced by Pistons

This comes only an hour after finalizing a trade with the Boston Celtics to acquire perimeter hawk Avery Bradley and a 2019 second-round pick for forward Marcus Morris.

With Bradley in the fold, the Pistons renounced their rights to Caldwell-Pope, making him an unrestricted free agent as they lost the right to match any offer sheet he signs.

Teams with projected cap space include Brooklyn (but only if the Otto Porter offer sheet is matched), Chicago, Indiana, LA Lakers, New York (but only if the Tim Hardaway Jr. offer sheet is matched), Orlando, Philadelphia and Sacramento.

After the Bradley deal, the Pistons are expected to be about $16.5 million below the hard cap, meaning they could not match any offers for Caldwell-Pope larger than that figure.

Le Pen has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and claimed the allegations are political "persecution" against her. They believe the money went to paying FN employees in France, rather than those working in Brussels.

Detroit has already made a slew of moves on a smaller scale since the free agency period began last week. However, the front office is said to prioritize shooting, which is an area the former Pistons guard could desperately improve.

Caldwell-Pope is coming off averaging 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 three-pointers per game in his fourth National Basketball Association season and could see an expanded offensive role in 2017-18, depending on who he ends up signing with. He averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists last season.

As for Caldwell-Pope himself, he would give the Lakers a young knockdown shooter who would help space the floor and would fit well in the backcourt next to Lonzo Ball.
