Jose Calderon released a statement on his personal website addressing the Charlotte-Toronto trade that never was. He says that he does not want to leave Toronto and that he considers himself as a citizen and fan of the Raptors.
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.
