via: LA Times.

Although he's had multiple ups and downs with the Lakers organization, the fans never gave up on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, as he was there through it all, from the losing seasons to the NBA Championship.

His loyalty has now been rewarded, and 'KCP' has reached an agreement to return to the Lakers on a three-year deal, $40M, according to Shams Charania from The Athletic.

The third year for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Lakers contains a partial guarantee. The deal gives him a $15M average salary over next two seasons and $68M guaranteed over five years.

Caldwell-Pope had several interested teams after playing a vital role in the Lakers‘ title run, but ultimately he decided to stay with the Los Angeles organization. 'KCP' shot 42.1 percent from deep in the team’s first three playoff series during the Orlando restart.

Caldwell-Pope first joined the Lakers via free agency back in 2017 after four seasons with the Detroit Pistons, and has re-signed with the team twice since.
