The fact that Caldwell-Pope reportedly agreed on Tuesday to a one-year deal worth $18 million with the Lakers is evidence Nets general manager Sean Marks made a strategic decision to preserve his future salary cap space.
Detroit renounced its rights to Caldwell-Pope last week after acquiring Avery Bradley in a trade with Boston. That made Caldwell-Pope an unrestricted free agent, open to sign with any team; by that time, the free-agent market was tepid, with big-dollar deals drying up the available market. He's streaky overall and his 39.9 field-goal percentage is something that needs to increase, but he's better creating off the dribble now and making plays moving with the ball (a career-high 2.5 assists per game last season, too). The Los Angeles Lakers have beat them to the punch.
The Nets' pending trade of Justin Hamilton for veteran Raptors small forward DeMarre Carroll plus first- and second-round picks in the 2018 draft was expected to become official Wednesday night when the money the Nets committed to an offer sheet for Wizards restricted free agent Otto Porter Jr. was freed.
Moscow shames United States for situation with Russian diplomatic compounds
However, the USA ambassador's Spaso House residence and the Anglo-American School in St Petersburg would not be affected. Russian Federation says President Trump presented "no plan to resolve the crisis" when the issue was raised in Hamburg.
The Lakers President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson, seems to be highly confident in his new young core and has been actively involved since being hired for the position this year.
For the Lakers, adding Caldwell-Pope gives them another guard that can score and shoot the ball well from the perimeter. There had also been significant interest from several other teams across the league.
Like Clarkson, Pope has spent his first few seasons in the National Basketball Association playing for a team that lacked the talent and assets to be a playoff contender.
The fight against gonorrhea gets a potential new weapon: a vaccine
Based on the findings of their study, an assessment of the effect on gonorrhea of that vaccine "seems warranted", they said. These structures, known as Outer Membrane Vesicles (OMV), are purified from the bacteria and used as vaccine antigens.
The Lakers now have $17 million in cap space but can get to $18.3 million in space.
The deal is a beneficial one for both sides. The Lakers had committed themselves to offering only one-year deals this year, but to compensate they were offering the remainder or most of their salary-cap space for those deals.
