The alleged robbery came just two weeks after Caldwell-Pope’s Lakers were eliminated by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The six-game series loss ended a frustrating season for the Lakers, who were without LeBron James and Anthony Davis for much of the season, the latter dealing with a groin injury during the series.

Caldwell-Pope started all 67 games he played during the regular season, averaging 9.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists while shooting 41.0 percent from 3-point range. He is one season into a three-year, $40 million contract he signed with the Lakers last offseason.
