Pistons coach speaks highly of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy spoke highly Wednesday about second-year guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to the team's official website.

"You always look at players first to their strengths, where can a guy be great," Van Gundy said. "I think he can be an elite defender in this league at the two guard and we’ll look for that every night. I think he is a high-energy guy who can get up and down the floor and attack the basket in transition. Those two things have got to be his foundation."

Caldwell-Pope averaged 24 points per game in the Summer League. However, he's still not at the stage in his career where the Pistons are counting on him to be one of their top scorers.

"On the offensive end, he’s going to have to slow down a little bit, get under control, and like a lot of people it will come down to how many shots he can make, how efficient he can be shooting the ball, how consistent can you be," Van Gundy said. "But I think he’s got a great foundation with the defense and energy that will get him on the floor and give him a chance to develop in those other areas."

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler battling for time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) In the battle to be the Pistons' for minutes in the Pistons' wing rotation second-year pro Kyle Singler appears to be edging out rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Singler started his third game in a row in Chauncey Billups' absence Wednesday against the Bulls, while Caldwell-Pope continues to come off the bench.

Singler played just 12 minutes Wednesday due to foul trouble, however, opening up a big role for Caldwell-Pope as one of just four guards on the active roster. Singler scored six points on 2 of 5 shooting, while Caldwell-Pope put up 18 points on 6 of 17 shooting in 40 minutes of action.

Singler is averaging 9.0 points per game on 51.9 percent shooting in three preseason games, while playing 19.3 minutes per game. Caldwell-Pope has taken on a much bigger role despite coming off the bench, and is averaging 10.3 points per game in 28.3 minutes. Still, he is shooting just 13 for 48 and 4 for 20 from three-point range. 


Kentavious Caldwell-Pope a potential starter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) The Detroit Free Press took a stab at projecting the Pistons' starting lineup Monday, more than two months before the start of the regular season. And it looks like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick in this summer's draft, could begin his career as a starter.

Caldwell-Pope was listed as a first-team shooting guard, as the team will really need some shooting in a starting lineup that essentially features two power forwards and a center, none of whom have a reliable jump shot. Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe fill out the rest of the projected starters. 

Caldwell-Pope could fit in as a floor spacer, after making 37.3 percent of his 3-pointers as a sophomore at Georgia, while attempting more than seven per game. Caldwell-Pope's main competitor for the spot will be veteran Chauncey Billups, another dead-eye shooter who has nonetheless proven liable to break down at the age of 36.
