According to the LA Times, Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be unavailable to play in any Lakers away games while he serves his 25-day jail sentence for violating his probation. That sounds about right until you learn the guy can still practice with the team and play in home games because he was granted a work release.
Ridiculous details of this special treatment from the report:
The 24-year-old is serving his sentence in the Seal Beach Police Department Detention Center and, under a work-release program, is being allowed to leave the facility for games and practices, according to court and jail officials and court documents.
Caldwell-Pope is not allowed to leave the state, which will result in missed games in Houston and Minneapolis. He is expected to be at the Lakers game against the Warriors in Oakland on Friday.
KCP was slapped with the jail sentence for blowing off alcohol and drug screening tests, a requirement after pleading guilty to a DUI when he was on the Pistons. The NBA suspended him for the first two games of this season for the DUI.
As for the Seal Beach Detention Center it’s a fancy schmancy jail for the wealthy that reportedly provides satellite TV and yoga sessions.
