Report: Pistons “Prepared” to Move on From Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

The Detroit Pistons are ready to move on from restricted free agent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, reports Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

The Pistons acquired Avery Bradley earlier today in a trade with the Boston Celtics. Bradley primarily plays shooting guard, the same position as Caldwell-Pope.

Caldwell-Pope is a restricted free agent who could receive a max offer sheet from another NBA team. It has been speculated that the Brooklyn Nets are very interested in the 24-year-old guard. Detroit does not currently have the money to match a max offer sheet if Caldwell-Pope was to receive one.

He averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game last season with Detroit.

The Pistons selected Caldwell-Pope with the eighth pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

UPDATE

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that the Pistons have indeed renounced the rights to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. he will now become an unrestrcited free agent.
