Report: Spurs and KCP might be a good match

With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope headed toward free agency this summer, the San Antonio Spurs would seem a logical landing spot for the shooting guard.

So writes Frank Urbina of Hoops Hype, especially if incumbent Spurs shooting guard Danny Green opts out of his contract and becomes a free agent.

“San Antonio will have some options to replace him, as the shooting-guard market won’t be totally barren among players set to be available,” Urbina writes.

“One such player could be Caldwell-Pope.

“Though not the 3-point shooter Green was in his prime, Caldwell-Pope is coming off a career campaign from beyond the arc, hitting 38.3 percent of his triples as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017-18 – his most accurate mark since reaching the NBA.

“The 6-foot-5 guard is also an underrated stopper on the less glamorous side of the floor, with a keen aptitude for getting skinny, going around screens and staying glued to his man.”

Urbina speculates the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies, as well as a possible return to the Los Angeles Lakers, as other possible landing spots for the 27-year-old Caldwell-Pope.
