Appreciate his contribution but would anyone be surprised if KCP is traded as part of salary manipulation to keep Schroeder?

He has become so dispensable versus THT, Schroeder, and Caruso etc. Wes has been equally bad but at least costs nothing to keep.


Nope, he will stay. It's stupid to give up a proven playoff performer.

He's slowly getting his groove back, come playoffs time he will be ready.

Last 5 games he is shooting 52.2% from the field, 53.3% on 3pt (8/15)

Would a team give up a 1st round pick? Rockets got 2 1st round picks for P.J. Tucker.

When does he have that FG? He's shooting the lights out this past 5 games.

Last 5 games he is shooting 52.2% from the field (16/29), 53.3% on 3pt (8/15)

He just doesn't have enough attempts. smh

Nope. Dipo is done. injury prone. KCP is better than someone who can't even stay in the game for long stretches.

Is it possible that the 2nd half of last season that he just played way over his head?

How he’s playing this year is pretty how he’s been playing since I’ve started watching him play in a Lakers uniform.

I’m worried his good play was just an extended hot streak

Once again, KCP plays horribly. Sick and tired of this guy. With our 2 main guns out, we need our role players to at least play average. KCP can't even do that. I don't care about a no-trade clause; either ship him out or plant his ass permanently on the damned bench.

It’s tough to watch.

I dont believe he is hurt too. He is just awful player at the moment.
He had some good parts of the last year playoffs but in general I really dont like him as a player. Too many ups and downs for that amount of money. If he is paid 2-3 mil ok fine , but this huge contract to offer us what, nothing. Would trade him for the bag of chips right now. It gives us chance to extend maybe some players like Caruso, THT, Harrel or DS maybe. He is worthless player at the moment. He gave us good playoff and thank you for that but dont want to see him anymore in Laker uniform.

The Lakers are reportedly listening to trade offers for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, via ESPN.

Yeahhh, that's purely bs excuses imo. Even if he was hurt it's pretty obvious his confidence is paper thin, this is not something new that is just happening out of nowhere this season. It's been literally every single season pretty much where he not only has monumentally rough shooting stretches but during those stretches he does absolutely nothing much of the games due to his overall confidence being hit.

It was awesome watching him ball out in the bubble last season and to start this year but people forget that early in the season last year his own fans were booing him at Staples and his teammates had to publically back him up because he was getting destroyed in the media as well due to his awful play.

Saying all that if they don't trade him i'll 100% root for him and hope for the best obviously heading towards the end of the season but considering how deep we are at guard now and we're likely going to have to let at least Caruso walk this off season due to so many raises i'd much rather see him traded and have the possibility of keeping all 3 of our FA guards.

It's pretty brutal to watch him when the team is struggling because at least DS plays great defense still or can break down the defense and get a layup or kick out for an open shot. Caruso still does the little things and even barely 20 year old THT finds ways to still make an impact when his shot isn't falling. Kuz made the gigantic rare leap to his overall game he did but I believe KCP is who he is at this point and is by far the most dead weight (outside of Deng of course) contract wise on the roster. If we can actually get someone remotely useful this year while also getting out of KCP's contract to help free up a little extra money in the off season it would be a huge win.

If we can’t find a trade partner for him then he needs to be benched. Something drastic has to be done because this has been going on for over a month on both ends. He’s not a productive player. He’s averaging 8-2-1 for the season. Our starting 2 guard is only collecting 2 boards a game and dishing out 1 assist... have to stop rewarding past play.

Probably got wind that he's been in trade talks for a while now and that's affecting his play.

I mean I get that he's in trade talks, but he should be use to it by now. I mean how many years has he been in trade talks? He's gotta man up and practice his shots.

Still playing like (bleep). Nothing new. Awful player at the moment. Should be benched. Give THT starting role. This guy is useless. Waste of money.

KCP has been inconsistent, but at the same time, he is averaging 40.1% on three pointers as a starter and gives you pretty good defensive effort.

Not many guys in the league can give you what KCP has shown he can in the playoffs and are easily available.

The thing is, with Wesley Matthews, the Lakers do not have that Danny Green to rely on. Last year when KCP went MIA, Danny Green would step up. Vice versa. We usually had one 2-way shooting wing on. When both were on, it was over.

This year we are relying on KCP and Wesley or THT to be those guys. Dennis is not really that kind of outside shooter. When KCP goes MIA, it is that much more obvious.

I look at this team as how you want to play around AD at the 5 and Bron basically being your 1. The modern day Kareem-Magic. In that case, I still think KCP is one hell of an asset to have. Above average defense, gets on the break for the early 3 pointer and for the season shooting 40% from 3. This is what we need around AD-Bron in the playoffs.

They have a point in the laker film room podcast—this dude is tired. We dont need to trade him, because we know what he’ll give us once he’s rested and focused. We just need someone who will give him a breather.
