The Detroit Pistons announced today that the club has exercised team options on the contracts of guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and forward Reggie Bullock. In two seasons with the Pistons, Caldwell-Pope has appeared in 162 games (123 starts) averaging 9.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 25.7 minutes per game. He led the team in 3-pointers made (153), total minutes (2,587) and minutes per game (31.5) last season. Caldwell-Pope was named to the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge at NBA All-Star 2015. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound guard was selected by Detroit in the first round (#8 overall) of the 2013 NBA Draft.
“Disrespectful, that’s what I see it as, disrespectful,” Bullock said late Wednesday, when asked how it felt to be portrayed as an extra in the multi-player July trade with Phoenix, in which the Pistons’ real target was Marcus Morris. “Like I said, I had confidence in myself. I knew that I was coming here with Marcus. I knew that’s what they needed on the wing. But at the same time, I know what type of player I am, too.”
The Pistons are intrigued by Bullock, fully aware of his pedigree. He was caught in a numbers game with the Clippers, who loaded up on veterans with the postseason in mind, and wasn’t in Phoenix long enough to make an impression after being included in a trade-deadline deal last February. At the same time, he wasn’t targeted by the Pistons when they dealt with the Suns in July to fill their need at small forward, but came along with Marcus Morris as Phoenix scrambled to create cap space for its failed pursuit of free agent LaMarcus Aldridge.
And in a crowded wing field that will require paring by Stan Van Gundy to fit the 15-man roster limit for the start of the regular season, Bullock might indeed be the best shooter of those on the bubble for the last spot or two. But it’s his defense, Bullock believes, that will sway Van Gundy in the end. “I can guard stretch fours,” he said. “I can guard threes. I can guard twos. Get my feet quicker, now I’ll be able to guard ones. I like defense, so I should be able to guard pretty much one through four.”
