Caldwell-Pope, 25, played well despite serving a 25-day sentence in which he reported to jail between home games because of a probation violation stemming from a misdemeanor DUI plea.

In five seasons with Detroit and the Lakers, Caldwell-Pope has career averages of 12 points and 3.4 rebounds.

The Lakers also agreed to terms with LeBron James on a four-year, $154 million deal that will alter the dynamic of the franchise.
