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.
JV is a project with upside, not a focal piece. MU is doing important things right now, but his hires will be as important as firing the old guard like Kelly. We still have to sort out a long-term coach and handle the roster issues mentioned above. I think Lowry IS the backup guard, though.
