Can Los Angeles land LeBron James and Paul George while keeping Randle? Without help from another team, that appears to be problematic unless James ($35.4 million) and George ($30.3 million) are willing to take less than their maximum salaries. If the Lakers renounced every free agent and non-guaranteed player (like Brook Lopez, Isaiah Thomas, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, etc.) except Randle, they would only have about $48 million in cap room.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was allowed to play in home games and practice during the sentence, which he served at the Seal Beach Police Department Detention Center. And while Caldwell-Pope completed that sentence in early January — he missed four games outside of California — it has taken the guard some time to hit his stride with the Lakers. Mentally, he was feeling the weight of his legal problems, he said. Once that was behind him, Caldwell-Pope averaged 16.8 points during a five-game stretch, before injuring his Achilles tendon in a game at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Jan. 17. His play was inconsistent upon his return from the injury, which sidelined him for two games.

Caldwell-Pope hopes to remain hot and continue to show the Lakers what he can do when he is healthy and playing with a clear mind. “It kind of takes you out of a rhythm,” Caldwell-Pope said of the injury and legal issue. “You’ve got the same rhythm every day just to keep you going. So once that rhythm is broken, it’s kind of hard to get back with it when you got a lot of things going on.” “I built my career in the league playing defense and making shots,” he added, “and also making plays when I needed to. That’s kind of my game and how I built my career.”
