Caldwell-Pope, along with Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and the No. 22 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, was traded from the Lakers to the Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook, a 2024 second-round pick and a 2028 second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After four seasons with the Lakers, Caldwell-Pope is being shipped out to the Wizards so Los Angeles can put together a Big 3 of Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. With the Wizards, Caldwell-Pope should continue to play minutes in the mid-to-upper 20s and provide value as a 3-and-D wing. Last season, he hit 1.8 threes per game at 41.0 percent.
