If Calderon is traded, another decent backup PG option just hit the market:

RT @BobcatsBballPR: Breaking @bobcats News: The team has withdrawn its qualifying offer to D.J. Augustin. He is now an unrestricted free...
Looks like he's going to be moved.. I wonder what Dallas would give up for him?
Says here he'd "welcome a trade".
I didn't expect him to like the Lowry deal. The guy has put up with some shit lately. I just hope we get something with some relevance for him. Sick of these unused TPE's.
It's a shame Jose wants to be moved now. I wanted him to retire a raptors
The problem is that BC's been speaking to Dallas for the past week and I can't see anything on their roster that I would take back, maybe a Marion return?
I will be BEYOND pissed if they dump him for a TPE...we are currently letting a big fat one expire anyways -- they are useless 9 times out of 10. I don't care how displeased Jose is, I'm sure he's been pissed before. I just refuse to let a player bottom out his trade value by making the demand public, if you're gonna play that game, you can wallow as backup.
You'd think we would've learned after Wince.
I'm worried that they've announce that they want to trade Calderon, I find that always spoils the pot a little, gives GM's a bit of leverage. Maybe it doesn't, but I don't like hearing about it.
That being said, I hope we put him somewhere good, he's always been a Toronto supporter, and despite not always loving him, he's deserved a solid reputation with the Raps.
Bobcats just rescinded their QO to DJ Augustine, try and get him, then goodbye caldy!!!! Point guard situation solved!!!!
I've had the feeling that Calderon would want to gtfo of Toronto, especially after the Lowry deal & the Nash pursuit prior. I'm just hoping his trade value won't drop significantly now that it is public he wants out.
I wouldn't want a TPE or a future 2nd round pick, but I have a feeling that is what is going to happen. As for Dallas, I don't see anyone in their roster I would like, not even Marion.
I was hoping Jose would be included in a deal that nets us Andre Iguodala. I'm not sure about that either.
marion & beaubios
would be interesting if VC's name has been mentioned in any of these talks LOL
