The Detroit Pistons are renouncing their rights to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, which means he will now become an unrestricted free agent.

Caldwell-Pope was previously a restricted free agent, but with the Pistons hard-capped following the signing of Langston Galloway, they wouldn’t have been in a situation conducive to matching a lucrative offer sheet for the 24-year-old wing.

The move comes shortly after the Pistons agreed to trade Marcus Morris to the Boston Celtics for Avery Bradley and a 2019 second-round pick, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania.

As far as Caldwell-Pope’s free-agent outlook is concerned, ESPN.com’s Zach Lowe noted a pair of teams who previously had plenty of money to spend could be out of the running
