According to Michael Grange of the Globe and Mail, the Raptors are still trying to trade Calderon for a big man, with talk of the Spanish guard heading to Indiana in exchange for the Pacers’ Roy Hibbert.
According to Doug Smith, Jose Calderon remains on the trading block as one team still has a “big interest” in Calderon. Smith says that Colangelo will do “everything he can to move him in the next couple of weeks”.
It’s understandable for Michael Jordan to pull out of a deal that he thought he wasn’t getting a fair shake in, but turning around and giving up Chandler for Dallas’ trash makes this one hard to swallow.
This I can explain. His low usage rate when he is on the floor minimize his impact on team stats, such as team O/D rating and even plus minus (since that stat also accounts for the other members of the rotation. However, when he is being used, his individual stats, or the stats that are only dependant on his contributions, he looks pretty good, pretty great even.
Basically, like what everyone else has been saying, it comes down to usage rate. Involve him enough in the offense and there's no reason why his individual efficiency won't be reflected in the team stats.
Now here's where you might say "but the raptors lose more when he shoots more than average, so the usage rate argument doesn't hold up". That's a fair point, but I would argue that Jonas often gets those extra field goals when A) the guards are putting up a ton of bricks and Jonas is cleaning the glass, or B) he's a last resort after its clear that the other scoring options aren't working. In both scenarios, the team as a whole is playing below average, so it makes sense that they would win a lower percentage of games.
