With shooting guards Jodie Meeks and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope both injured, the jumbo alignment is one hybrid method for addressing a short-handed perimeter. "As it works out, having Josh take some of the minutes on the perimeter probably helps us a little bit this week," Van Gundy said. "We'll see what happens. We've had exactly one day of practice with that lineup, so I'm sure that will be smooth." Booth Newspapers

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had to be helped off the floor in the third quarter and did not return Sunday in the Detroit Pistons' 91-89 loss to the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. The second-year guard sprained his his left knee after slipping on the floor. The severity of the injury is unknown and Caldwell-Pope will be evaluated after the Pistons (2-1) return home. He didn't appear to be putting weight on his left leg when leaving the loss to the Wizards. Booth Newspapers

Will Bynum: There's a lot of new faces on the team. I really like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He has the potential to become a great defender. He has a high basketball IQ and he plays basketball the right way. Chauncey said he was like a Tony Allen/Bruce Bowen type of energetic defender. Everybody was very competitive during the preseason: myself, Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, Charlie Villanueva... Everybody! HoopsHype

Billups was asked if Caldwell-Pope defensively reminds him of a young Tayshaun Prince. “It’s different,” he said. “Tay was always, and still is, a very good, solid defender. He’s just going to stay in front of you, contest the shots. He’s not going to put a lot of pressure on you or make you turn your back. This kid is different. He’s got great feet, he’s got great hands, he’s going to pressure you. He’s not going to just wait until you make a move. He’s going to pressure you and force your hand. He’s more of a Tony Allen, Bruce Bowen type of energetic defender.” NBA.com

According to a source, Oklahoma City really is intrigued by Caldwell-Pope and would consider trading up to land him. Several teams I spoke with believe he is the target of several teams looking to jump the Thunder. SheridanHoops

Caldwell-Pope said he’s worked out with the Timberwolves (No. 9), Trail Blazers (No. 10), Mavericks (No. 13), Bucks (No. 15), Celtics (No. 16) and Cavaliers (No. 19). “It would be surprising just to go to a team that I didn’t work out for,” Caldwell-Pope said. “They haven’t seen me, what I can do. it would just be surprising to me.” He also said that he expects to be a top-10 pick. So, Caldwell-Pope doesn’t need to read another mock draft to get a read on his stock. It sounds like he has a firm grasp already. Connect the dots, and he expects to go to the Timberwolves or Trail Blazers. NBCSports.com
