When you say ''PG of the Future''... What does future means? 2 years? 5 years? IMO, Calderon is the starting PG of the future for at least this year and next. Before then, I don't see why we should talk about a new PG.
You need two in this league and they both need to understand the coaching guys' system very well BUT each needs to have their own strengths as to how the system is applied to game situations. Jose should stay and the dude from Houston who drove Bayless wild last night could be the other one - Drajic?
BUT you need two for a playoff run in the NBA.
PS - Retire Jose as a Raptor. It's time to show some class in Toronto - the league is watching....
i just checked. david robinson was the last player to play his entire career on one team. duncan, kobe and i think pierce will be the next.
tony parker brought san antonio multiple championships and they were going to trade him for BigV. i don't think there is a more classy team than san antonio. jose is a really nice guy but tenure for a couple playoff seasons sadface.
if the right offer comes you make that trade and talk about how hard it was and how he was great for the team and city. that is professionalism and this is a profession.
whining and bitching and complaining that "stupid ignorant american players" don't want to play here is classless.
Dragic. BC get him already. ugh.
I would like to trade for underrated guys like Dragic or maybe Bledsoe, who showed many times, that if they get time on court they can produce some nice numbers. And they are young and not too expensive
(Sorry for poor English )
Did you read the first post?
This is not about Calderon. This is the very public statements BC has made that he is looking for a PG of the future.This is not a 'trade Jose' or 'keep Jose' thread - remember that.
The fact is Bryan Colangelo has said on numerous occasions this year that a focus of his is, one way or another, acquiring a point guard of the future.
Like it or not, that would strongly imply the point guard of the future is NOT Jose Calderon considering he is already under contract.
I'm not too sure what he means by that but I would assume it is a PG who can play with JV and company as they enter their prime (around 5 years down the road).

What I like about the height is the ability to throw the pass over the top on the pick and roll. I am having strange tingling thinking about that possibility with JV.
Golden State gets:
Leandro Barbosa (and his expiring deal)
Andres Biedrins (and his terrible deal)
It would take a lot to get him, sure. But it would be entirely worth it. Toronto would trade two B grade prospects, for a legit blue-chipper. Golden State gets to turn its back court into something much more sensible (though less talented) than it has now, gets a solid and young PF and gets out of the Biedrins deal.
Doing this deal would entirely blow Toronto's cap space. But who cares? They're not going to get anyone as good as Curry in free agency, anyway.
I think of a guy like Jason Kid (who is 6'4"). He was not the fastest guy yet he was All-Defensive by using his basketball IQ. I don't know if Calathes has that ability but DraftExpress was all over his basketball IQ:
There are very few players in college basketball who bring his combination of production and basketball IQ to the table, though, and considering that he's just a sophomore, he probably still has room to improve as well. In the right system alongside the right type of players Calathes could likely be very effective, but whether or can find that is not a given.

With Barg's return, we could conceivably lose more ping-pong balls, which is a good thing IMO as it will get us closer to some of the PG's in the lower portion of the draft order. I've heard Lillard moving up the draft charts.
