Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has agreed to a three-year, $40 million deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers, his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, told ESPN on Saturday.

Caldwell-Pope had interest from teams around the National Basketball Association, including the Atlanta Hawks and the New York Knicks, before ultimately staying in Los Angeles.

According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, both the Lakers and Caldwell-Pope remain interested in getting a deal done, however, the most the Lakers can offer him is about $12 million, which makes it very hard to re-sign him.

However, one player, from their supporting cast, who they aren't letting go of is Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

The agreement is another example of the Lakers swiftly executing their offseason plan, which has included trading for guard Dennis Schröder and signing Harrell and Wesley Matthews in free agency.

Caldwell-Pope averaged 9.3 points and 1.6 assists in 25.5 minutes per game while shooting 38.5% from deep with the Lakers last season.

Caldwell-Pope played a key role in the Lakers' title run in 2020 and was their third best player at times.
