Calderon has been nothing but class for this organization. Hate to see him leave, but wish him nothing but the best. The Mavs are showing true interest in Jose and it might be a good spot for him.
Calderon for Dominique Jones + Jae Crowder + 2nd rounder could work.
Memphis and Philly have been suggested as well ...
Calderon + Derozan + Amir Johnson for Rudy Gay + Tony Wrotten + 2nd rounder could work
Calderon + Derozan for Iguodala + Vucevic could work.
Houston's clearing space for Howard, so they aren't taking on Jose (unless they plan to ship him immediately to Orlando). New Orleans just dealt their PG so they could give minutes to a young guy. So they aren't taking Jose either. You're right that Jose is less desirable than the other younger, cheaper PG's that have moved, but I'm right about the value that he'll fetch us at this point. Late 2nd rounder unless we take back a bad contract.
omgawd nooooo why is he leavin!!!??? There is nothing on the market to get in return...sooo does that mean Ben Uzoh will come off the bench after Lowry??? Oh my, I know Lowry can hold his own but can Uzoh do it if Calderon leaves....noooooooooooooooo da FRANCHISEEEEE!!!
http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/dal...sideration.eceThe Mavericks have interest in Toronto point guard Jose Calderon, but the only legitimate avenue that would bring him to Dallas is if he were to be waived by the Raptors via the amnesty clause. A source said that if Calderon were to be amnestied, the Mavericks would be players.
It appears unlikely that any trade could be worked out.
Scratch the Mavs off the list if this article has any merit.
Why is everyone surprised at Jose's reaction? BC would have to be an idiot to think Jose would just roll over (again), This is his contract year and he needs to be on the floor so he can score a decent last contract. BC typically doesnt keep disgruntled players around so something happens sooner than later.
I'm also assuming they think they'll land Brand and/or Scola as well, otherwise they'd have plenty of cap space to make it work.
The tunnel is closing, and trading Calderon for assets is really starting to look unlikely. Every team almost has a starting point guard, I could see him possibly going to Portland, Chicago, Sacramento in terms of point guard needs...
I'm really starting to think the Jose + Ed D. + DD for Iguodala + another asset is looking more and more likely to happen. I've been guilty of saying Derozan has potential but...
Iguodala is a gold-medalist, probably gonna be another one this Summer, an All-Star, a great defender, he's an NBA 2nd team all-defense, all-rookie team, Nnt bad if I may say. This guy does have a good 2-3 years left at very high play, and he may be on the decline, but I don't seem him declining into a player where the game is absolutely diminished... I see him move into a Grant Hill type role in the future. The guy can ball, and his game against the Dominican Republic was impressive, but nothing more impressive than Kevin Durant.
I've been critical of DeRozan in the past, but I'm not quite ready to give up on him (yet). Ideally, I'd like to see what he brings this season.
I'm hoping that his experience with the Select team will have a noticeable impact between his ears.

Maybe Ellington and Ridnour for Calderon? Jose gets to play with his young Spanish teammate.
Ridnour is a high value player at his contract price. He would be perfect off the bench in Toronto. He could deliver something similar to what Calderon isn't willing to do.
How much abuse can one player take. I suppose that BC wouldn't realize that a guy who gave his heart and soul to Toronto would be upset by constantly being mentioned in trade talks and amnesty decisions. Now what is the next move?
Bayless is gone and expect Calderon will be gone for little to nothing. Lots of talk about a trade but I expect nothing will get done except that we will have lots of money to spend and talk about 2013-14.
