    Default Free agent point guard ... why not Jose?

    I see Jose Calderon is flying back to the US to sign a contract with a team.

    Am I the only person on this forum who wishes that might be us? We need help on the point. Casey liked him as his number one point guard. He plays team defense well, even if he is getting older and slower. He's a great three point shooter. He's great on the pick and roll with Jonas and Amir, or finding Novak open in the corner. Can someone tell me if there is a chance of getting him back? Would you would want him if we could?

    Would I want him?

    If tanking - no. If not tanking - yes.

    Is there a chance of him signing with Toronto - I'd put money on extremely slim

    Absolutely not. It doesn't even matter if Jose is serviceable, we don't want anything to do with the BC-era. Besides, him and Lowry didn't exactly work at the PG.

    No. Not under any circumstances. Been there .. done that. We know what he brings ... and its not what we are looking for. Based on last year, Im not sure that Lowry is either (he might be) .. but Jose for sure is not.

    Having said that, I think he could be a good addition to the right team. That team just isnt us ..

    Dallas has acquired two point guards in the last few days, drafting Shane Larkin and signing Gel Melkel.

    And both those guys have no NBA experience. Therefore Jose is an extremely logical choice to pursue as the starter, but someone who'll still leave minutes for those guys to fight for time.

    Why would Ujiri willingly rekindle the point guard drama that hung over the team's head for the last 5+years?

    I'm a huge Calderon fan by the way - this just isn't a good idea.

    You lost credibility when you tried to say that Jose was anything but a sieve on defence. This would be a terrible decision. Time to move on.

    Why would you want to make a lateral move at the PG position? Jose is better in some aspects Lowry isn't, and vice versa. If it was a clear improvement I would say yes go for it, but it isn't imo.

    Like others have said, there aren't many good reasons why signing Calderon would be a good idea.

    Let's look forward, not backwards.
