Pistons renounce rights to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope amid Avery Bradley trade

Nets Lakers among top teams who could sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

With Bradley on his way to Detroit, the Pistons withdrew their $5.5 million qualifying offer and renounced their rights to restricted free-agent guard Kentavius Caldwell-Pope. Newcomer Avery Bradley is set to make roughly $8.8M this upcoming season before becoming a free agent himself, so the Pistons have a year to figure out if they see Bradley part of their long-term plans. The Nets have been considered a potential suitor for Caldwell-Pope since before free agency began. They accomplish that by swapping Bradley for Morris, but in helping the Celtics, the Pistons also helped themselves. The 24-year-old will have a robust market that could include the Brooklyn Nets, assuming the Wizards match Otto Porter's signing sheet, as well as the Los Angeles Lakers if he chooses to pursue a short-term deal.

After signing Andre Drummond to a max deal last offseason in addition to carrying big contracts for Reggie Jackson and Tobias Harris, the prospect of having to match a max or near-max offer sheet for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was not particularly palatable.

With Slovak Sagan disqualified, Norway's Alexander Kristoff came second and Greipel third. The world champion was also docked 80 points from his green jersey total.

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.

The former top-10 pick averaged 13.8 points while shooting at a 35 percent clip from three-point range this past season.
