With Bradley in the fold, the Pistons renounced their rights to Caldwell-Pope, making him an unrestricted free agent as they lost the right to match any offer sheet he signs.

ESPN's Bobby Marks noted the only other teams with cap space for the time being are the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings.

Caldwell-Pope, 24, has played four National Basketball Association seasons for the Pistons, averaging 13.8 points in the 2016-17 season - and 11.7 per game in his career. Here's a team that had hard-capped itself, even with Caldwell-Pope still on the restricted free agent market. He averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists last season.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski went on to indicate that the Brooklyn Nets are a prime potential landing spot for KCP. ESPN reported the Lakers also might have some interest in Caldwell-Pope on a one-year deal.

The problem is the Nets now have nearly all of their salary-cap space tied up in an offer sheet to Washington Wizards small forward Otto Porter Jr., their first-choice restricted free agent.
