    39.3 last year is pretty darn close

    If he is good enough for contenders third string surely he is good enough for the raps, no? That was all I meant.
    39.3% is actually his 3pt shooting and 40.4 2pt. He is consistent!

    I'll take a 39% beyond the arc shooter any day. Korver a long range specialist was at 43.5 last year....but more one dimensional and Jamal Crawford 31%.

    Sorry but Jose's poor attitude would ruin this situation making Lucas the better fit. Every time Jose is made the backup he sulks and pouts and manipulates his teammates and talks about how with his big contract he should be the starter.
    Sorry, but his time is up.
    You +1'ed your own statement. Must be thought when your assertions are asinine. Back up in Europe LOL

    Wanting to be a top-tier point guard is different than being known as a back-up point guard.

    His performances this past season pre-injury granted him a top 10 spot. He's not a top-tier point guard yet, and he's not a back-up point guard. I would put him in the second tier of point guards such as Jennings, Curry, Irving, LOWRY, John Wall, Rubio...
    And that's where he puts himself.

    I'm with you. My favorite Raptor of all time. If he goes everybody will quickly realize just how good he is. Jose Calderon is definitely not the reason why the Raptors have struggled so bad in the last few years. Wish he could stay but don't blame him for wanting to start...he deserves it.
    As much as I want Calderon to be a Raptor, I feel like this isn't where he can ever be at maximum efficiency. Calderon would show that he's a better point guard if he's on a team that is filled with shooters and all-stars. Sorta like the Heat or Lakers. If he was surrounded by better shooters and better players, I think Calderon can actually average more assists than he does right now as a Raptor.

    Totally disagree. I think that if you put him on the Heat, they would end up losing more games than not. He's a cancer, plain and simple.

    As I've previously stated, I don't think John Lucas III is gonna be a good enough back-up PG to Lowry. It worries me if Lowry gets injured and we're stuck with Lucas as our starting PG. That's a scary thought. Lowry-Calderon is a bit safer and better than Lowry-Lucas. Also, Lucas is 29 years old, so there's no real potential to get better. So I think how well he plays now is as good as he gets. I think Lucas is more of a third-string point guard. So I don't think he's worth about $2.5 million per year.

    Lucas will be better in the locker room and community, and he'll be a better teammate. Not to mention the upgrade in athleticism. Well worth not having Jose around. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

    Train-wreck thread.. I'm one of those losers who comes here to do more reading than posting. Here I am trying to browse through and learn more about Lucas' game and my time has been wasted sorting through all this stupid banter back and forth. I mean, I came here to waste time, but it was for the purpose of educating myself. I hope we end up with a new John Lucas lll thread, and that it can be about John Lucas lll.
    Ps. Never realized how much I appreciated the usual posters until right now. I really enjoy these boards most days and learn something new every time.

    I like this signing because it opens the door for us to find a suitor for Jose Calderon and strengthen another position. However I am curious to see how much we sign JL3 for because if it is for between 2-3 million I feel like we would've been better served if we kept Bayless ...

    That being said JL3 is a good 3 point shooter, and he must be a sound defensive player since he is from Chicago.

    Agreed.

    Thank you very much for posting this. I started the thread to hear what people had to say about John Lucas and it got turned into Jose sucks thread. Disappointed to say the least.
