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. Follow @raptorsrepublicFollow @CornerSniper
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”. Follow @raptorsrepublicFollow @CornerSniper
