Lakers GM Rob Pelinka said what about KCP!?
The LA Lakers are an improving team looking to contend in the Western Conference for years to come. GM Rob Pelinka is trying to build through the draft and free agency, they drafted Lonzo Ball, who showed at Summer League why people think he could be a franchise-changing player. And the team has made moves (with more to come) to have a couple of max salaries slots next summer when a host of elite players will be on the market.
Among the smart Lakers’ moves: signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $18 million contract. Caldwell-Pope has great potential to step forward as a valuable “3&D” wing who fits with the Lakers’ young core and gives the team a much-needed defensive boost.
Pelinka went a little overboard when describing the type of signing that KCP meant to the Lakers franchise…

“I would venture to guess there’s people in the room that are familiar with the stories in the Book of Genesis. Where there was a time when the Israelites were wandering in the desert and, all of a sudden, bread came down from heaven. That’s kind of what today feels like for us, to have KCP join.”
So basically, KCP has been delivered from heaven to the Lakers. Uhhhh, what!? I mean KCP is a nice player, but won’t be the sole reason the Lakers make a playoff run. If LeBron signs with the Lakers next year, what would that signing be considered? Jesus resurrected? Calm down Rob.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/lakers-gm-rob-pelinka-said-what-about-kcp/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/ap_17199794008941-e1500465757970.jpg?fit=610%2C343&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/ap_17199794008941-e1500465757970.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1LA LakersNBAPacific DivisionRecent PostsKentavious Caldwell-Pope,LA Lakers,Rob PelinkaThe LA Lakers are an improving team looking to contend in the Western Conference for years to come.
