Kentavious Caldwell-Pope News
The Denver Nuggets have acquired guard/forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and point guard Ish Smith in a trade with the Washington Wizards. The Nuggets sent guard Monte Morris and forward Will Barton to Washington in the deal. KCP figures to be a key wing for the Nuggets in 2022-23. Last year, the versatile veteran averaged 13.2 points, 2.1 three-pointers and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 39% from three-point range. Smith, meanwhile, will help give the Nuggets point guard depth behind Jamal Murray, who is expected to make his long-awaited return at the start of the upcoming season.
Washington Wizards center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (rest) have been deemed unavailable for Friday's contest vs. the Knicks. Porzingis' absence comes on the heels of a dominant 26-point, 18-rebound outing Wednesday, paving the way for Daniel Gafford and Thomas Bryant to take on increased roles in the frontcourt. Caldwell-Pope's absence on the wing figures to open up offensive opportunities for Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert. The final chance that Porzingis and Caldwell-Pope have to take the floor in 2021-22 comes Sunday against Charlotte.
Washington Wizards shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope emerged as the team's primary offensive option during Friday's victory over Dallas, as he dropped a season-high 35 points on 13-for-19 shooting. The last time that Caldwell-Pope collected 35 points in an outing was March 19, 2019, as a member of the Lakers. Now, Caldwell-Pope finds himself enjoying an offensive revival down the stretch of '21-22 with numerous key Wizards sidelined. Over his last four games, Caldwell-Pope has averaged 25.5 points on 67.8% shooting, including going 57.7% from behind the arc. While Kristaps Porzingis and Rui Hachimura both stand to see significant offensive roles on a nightly basis, Caldwell-Pope is a solid waiver wire add for the final week of the year, where available.
Washington Wizards shooting guards/small forwards Bradley Beal and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are both questionable to suit up for Thursday's game against Cleveland as they attempt to return from the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Beal and Caldwell-Pope have both missed each of Washington's past three contests, which has allowed Corey Kispert, Aaron Holidayand Deni Avdija to all see elevated roles and offensive usage. With Beal leading the team in scoring (23.3 points per game) and assists (5.9 per game) and Caldwell-Pope leading the way in steals (1.3 per game), getting the duo back would be a major boost for a team that is dealing with widespread injuries and COVID issues. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word, as Beal is among the game's elite and is a must-start in all formats when cleared.
