Caldwell-Pope will be playing in his tenth NBA season. Prior to joining the Los Angeles Lakers for four seasons, he played his first four seasons of professional basketball with the Detroit Pistons

Caldwell-Pope saw a career renaissance while playing for the Wizards. He shot 39 percent from outside the arc and had a triple-double with 13.2 points

3.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game. In each of the preceding two seasons, he had scored fewer than 10 points on average.

Caldwell-Pope joins a Nuggets squad that is anticipated to be a strong Western Conference contender next season.

Denver finished 48-34 in 2021–2022 but lost to the Golden State Warriors in the opening round of the playoffs, who went on to win the NBA championship.

Nikola Jokic, the two-time defending NBA MVP, will serve as the team's head coach. With his passing ability, Caldwell-Pope will have plenty of chances to make spot-up three-pointers.

Jamal Murray, a point guard who missed the entire 2016–17 campaign while rehabbing from a ruptured ACL, will now be available for Denver, which will help the team.

In 2020–21, he had a 21.2 point and 4.8 assist average. Caldwell-life Pope's will undoubtedly be made simpler by playing in Murray's backcourt.
