Kentavious Caldwell-Pope opened up about the addition of Andre Drummond to the Lakers and how he plans to help the big man adjust.

Caldwell-Pope said his friendship with Drummond and the fact that they played together for three years in the Detroit Pistons will help Drummond adapt faster.

“On court chemistry, it’s not there yet. The one game we did play, we didn’t really get acquainted, I would say. But I know Dre, I played with him three years in Detroit and playing with him then was what was good, he’s a great great great big.

Just him being added to the team is really gonna help us out when our other two guys are back, Bron and AD. So just adding him, it’s a positive.

Our friendship is still there, it’s been there since Detroit. So it’s just easier to come up to him and talk to him, just get him acquainted to the ins and outs. So it’s good to have him over,” Caldwell-Pope said about Drummond, via Lakers Nation.

Caldwell-Pope and Drummond played together against the Milwaukee Bucks, but the big man got injured and has missed the last two games of the Lakers.
