Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope stays centered amid swirling trade rumors

Orange County Register

In most other games, in most other situations, it would have gone unnoticed.

Luke Walton called a timeout late in the first quarter, and as the team walked toward the bench, TV cameras caught Walton approaching Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and appearing to make a passionate critique. Caldwell-Pope never broke stride as he seemed to wave Walton off.

Without sound, there are a number of ways to interpret that. One is the way Walton and Caldwell-Pope said it happened: It was a heat-of-the-moment exchange in the game, one of countless such interactions that happen all the time. Pope went on to be a helpful player in the Lakers’ 108-105 victory over the Heat on Monday night, scoring 11 points and adding three assists.
