Reports: Clippers to meet with Caldwell-Pope, Bradley

The Los Angeles Clippers will kick off free agency by meeting with shooting guards Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley, according to multiple reports.

Caldwell-Pope, 25, played for the Los Angeles Lakers last year after four seasons in Detroit and will meet with the Clippers on Sunday, according to ESPN.

Picked No. 8 overall in 2013 by the Pistons, Caldwell-Pope has averaged 12 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 388 career games.

Bradley came to the Clippers in the Blake Griffin trade with the Pistons last season, but played just six games with Los Angeles, averaging 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

Bradley, 28, was taken 19th overall by the Boston Celtics in 2010 and has averaged 12.3 points and 3.0 rebounds for his career.

His meeting with the team was first reported by the L.A. Times.

The Clippers recently traded Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards and selected guards with the 11th (Shai Gilgeous-Alexander) and 13th (Jerome Robinson) picks in the 2018 NBA Draft.

They also lost center DeAndre Jordan, who reportedly agreed to join the Dallas Mavericks shortly after free agency opened at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday.

Marcin Gortat, who came over in the Rivers trade and is in the final year of his contract, figures to replace Jordan in the lineup.
