    I just hope that Portland (Batum S&T) and/or Philly (Iggy trade) are among the teams inquiring about Calderon's availability!

    Calderon would be a great mentor for Lillard in Portland, who could run the P&R quite effectively with Aldridge.

    He'd also be a good complement to Holiday in Philly, while providing them with a $10.6M expiring contract, given how they appear to be aiming to be big time players in free agency next offseason.

    That is a standard company line from BC.

    I'm not sure what he is suppose to say other than the quote.

    "Yeah, can't move the guy. Little value. Is it 2013-14 yet?"

    I do not put much faith in the comment.

    If we do give up Calderon for either Batum or Iggy, we would to find another PG to backup Lowry since we don't have another PG if we trade Calderon.

    I think Batum already went public and said he wants to play in Minny, so we can put a lid on that dream, and Jose's use in Philly would be the same as in Toronto, so why not keep him, let his contract expire so we can re-sign him cheap next year plus cap space.

    Batum might be irked that Minny hasn't taken the steps to commit to him. His agent has also said that he doesn't want to return to Portland, though Batum himself has contradicted that, saying he'd be happy in either place. At the end of the day, if he's not happy with the progress being made by either team, he could very well be swayed by a team that steps up and is ready to commit immediately and offer him big bucks, be it Toronto or another team. Money has a way of changing minds :-)

    Hypothetically speaking, Calderon could be part of a trade for Iggy AND signed on the cheap next offseason, if there was mutual interest for him to return to Toronto. There are still several decent PGs available who could be signed as a backup to Lowry.


    *** for the record, until I see this rumor being picked up by a far more reliable source, I don't put much stock in it, but it's something tangible to talk about for the time being!

    Yeah, and Turkoglu was going to Portland until he wasn't.

    Even with Jose expiring next year, my understanding is that the Raps won't have any space after dealing with Derozan and other various and sundry salaries and increases. If they want to utilize Calderon to free up space then they better do it now.

    I feel like Calderon is getting treated like shit the past couple years. He's one of the most loyal Raptors in history and he's been on the trading block year after year with numerous trade rumors involving him. But hey, I guess that's business....

    Default Calderon to New Orleans?

    New Orleans just dealt their only starting caliber PG Jarrett Jack to GSW in exchange for the rights to a Euro prospect and more cap relief. Now they have a giant hole in their roster and a ton of cap space ($28 M), and we have an expendable, high-performing PG on a large expiring contract. While New Orleans does indeed have Austin Rivers he definitely wouldn't be a wise decision at their starting PG spot because he isn't a facilitator in the least, plus he's a 19 year old rookie. Jose would be the perfect, facilitating veteran PG leader type that this young team would need, plus he only comes with a one-year commitment allowing them to move on and be big players in next years free agency market. New Orleans doesn't really have much to offer us back in return as far as players go. Perhaps in a deal for Jose they provide us with pure cap relief? Maybe we send another small asset their way to sure up some holes on their roster and in return we get a future pick, even second rounders would be worth it in my opinion. Maybe we can work a sign and trade for Kaman, who would be our starting centre until Jonas is ready to handle the role full-time? I'm not sure there are many better offers out there for Jose but this appears to be an incredibly viable option. What do you guys think Jose could pull in the trade market?
    Thoughts???

    Yeah! Just like Nash said he can't see himself playing for the Lakers?

    Dude, it doesnt matter what Batum says...If the Raptors have made a decent pitch...we all know Toronto is a better location for him as compared to Minny...this money wise, future wise etc.

    TORONTO is in a better position. Batum probably said that because he heard some promising stuff from Minny Staff. BC pls give his agent a call get a meeting in place. We can talk after

    You are very right there. No respect for the only guy who wanted to only play for the Raps. Cut the guy some slack and let him finish his career here. I am sure he will not mind staying for a reduced salary knowing that he made some money from being over paid. ;o)

    I don't know about that. If I was Jose, after being treated like dirt, I would leave the first chance I get. There is no loyalty in basketball. Money and championships dictate fate.

    You can say KG or whatever, he is still going to make $13M+ over the next 3 years. You think he would stay if the number was below $10M? If Jose gets a better offer to start next season, he would take it in a heart beat.

    Colangelo says Jose is upset about the Lowry signing.
    What about him being a great team player who would mentor the young pg of the future?
    If he can't accept his backup role he's gone.

    Jose has always been a great team player. He has always put team first, regardless of starting/not starting etc. But you gotta look at it from his point of view. After earning the starting role time and time again, and proving that he's capable to run the offense and put guys in good positions to score (I'm gonna leave out his defensive abilities, or lack thereof), and always remaining loyal to the team, all BC does is look for guys to take his spot. He's lasted through the TJ Ford and Jarett Jack days, was traded once (almost) and now this. If I was Jose, I would be pissed.

    Thankfully, regardless of the outcome of this situation, Jose is a pro (as Colangelo has stated already) and will do what the team asks of him, and put everything he's got into it because he's that kind of guy. I love Jose, and want nothing more than for him to win, and be appreciated wherever he ends up.

    BC should do another dog & pony show like the vid showing to Nash. This time to Batum in french with Jerry Lewis doing the narration/pleading.

    For those wondering about the JL reference...he is a hero in France for his humour...go figure.

    Apparently he said this on Prime Time Sports. I think this means that a trade is brewing.

    In the sixties he might have been a hero; Batum might not even know him.

    We should trade Calderon if there is value for him on the market. I always wanted him over Nash, but now that we have another pointguard as a starter we should try to get as much value out of him as possible and that's trading him because I highly doubt he is going to re-sign with us after the season. Not after almost getting trades, having to compete for the starting position a couple of times, becoming the back-up pointguard again with Lowry, all the amnesty talks and trade talks right now and us wanting him to take significantly less money on his next contract. He's a professional, but after this year he'll gladly be a professional on a contender.
