2. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is the longest-tenured player on the Los Angeles Lakers and he is one of the most underappreciated, even by Laker fans. While most fans have since turned the corner on KCP, there was a long time there that KCP was getting clowned by his own fanbase and everyone wanted to see him get traded.
Meanwhile, KCP has quietly become one of the most consistent wing role players in the league. His defense can be shoddy at times and he has had his moments where he is cold from three, but he really showed up to ball in the NBA Playoffs and has carried that over into a phenomenal start this season.
We are not going to use an eight-game sample size to try and sell KCP as the best three-point shooter in the league but goodness gracious has he been locked in. KCP has made 15 of his 28 threes (53.6%) and has an eFG% of .657.
KCP has the second-best three-point percentage with at least 25 attempts this season, only behind Seth Curry and has the 15th best eFG% with at least 50 shots. He ranks fifth among guards.
The Lakers may have overpaid KCP during his four years with the team but the reason why they overpay him to keep him around is that he keeps producing. Only 29 players in the entire league have taken at least 1,000 threes since KCP became a Laker at a 37% clip. He is one of them. He ranks 34th in the league in eFG% among players to take at least 2,000 shots since then.
So he has been a top 30-35 shooter/scorer over the last three-plus seasons. Very few people around the league would regard him as such.
