    Default Speculation: Raptors Will Offer Jose Contract In Offseason

    A source familiar with the situation has indicated that Bryan Colangelo wants to bring back Jose Calderon this offseason.

    I know I'm not Woj, but I can assure you this is coming from a credible source, however the source requested to make it confidential.

    Or could you be doing this to create traffic to your blog?

    I'll change the title to "speculation".

    I don't want to get into a whole "do we want him?" thing, but if you look at the PGs available as a FA backup, Jose is clearly up there as maybe the best available....along with guys like WAtson if he walks, and Jack (who I'd really hate to see back in a Raps uniform)....

    All that said, I certainly don't want to overpay or want a controversy. If we can sign him for something ike 3-5 million a season for a couple of years, I'd consider it....although I think he'll get a nice offer from a team like Det or Dal, where he can probably start, and probably make more money...good for him though.

    For the right price, I'd love him back. Something tells though he's looking for something similar annually to what he's making now. If so, definitely not. But Jose's a cool cat and I'd expect him to give Colangelo and co. some serious consideration this summer and even perhaps give us a "hometown" discount. Or at least I hope he would.

    Maybe it's me but I don't understand the significance behind this thread. Of course Bryan is going to go after Jose. The team needs a backup PG; Jose has been a long suffering Raptor and Casey likes him.. if he flat out said that he wasn't interested in Jose this summer then that would be breaking news.

    The real issue is Jose. He has been treated pretty unfairly by the organization. Almost traded once; almost amnestied; was on the block all of last year and again this year; finally traded to Detroit of all places. If I was Jose I'd be pissed and would want to go anywhere else. Plus the most the Raptors can offer is the MLE, and even then it may not be the max MLE if they are anywhere close to the apron.

    I'd give the odds of Jose coming back to Toronto at about 20/80 right now.

    Jose's not a chump. He'll get a 2-3 yr contract offer from Detroit in the 6-8 million dollar range and will continue to start for that franchise. LOL for BC thinking he can get him back for a veteran's minimum.

    I'd be pissed off too if I was Jose. But then I'd take a bath in that $50 million Toronto gave me and cool off.

    I do think Jose won't hold really hard feelings. I doubt we're his first choice this season. But maybe after his next deal, where he makes fair money for another year or two (I don't think he'll get a deal near his current one for longer than a year or two), I could see him considering ending his career in Toronto, and possibly doing so quite cheap. Soemthing like 3 years/8 or 9 million, with the third being an option year (don't care if it's player or team at that price). I don't think Jose's game will really decline by much. He already doesn't depend on speed/athleticism, so he should be similarly effective, albeit on a lesser level with less playing time.

    Why? I think Calderon would be the perfect backup PG and is the best option of all the free agents this offseason.

    Perfect backup PG, yes (if only Casey was able to see him as such).

    I just dont think retreading old 7 year with limited success groun is a good idea and I would hate to sign the guy and hear reports about people being unhappy Calderon's playmaking blowing 10 point leads. Calderon statistically sucked off the bench averaged what 5 turnovers? Calderon never said it but he was upset about coming off the bench and played awful ball to prove it.

    Plenty of guards out there let BC find someone else

    The Raptors (1) brought in several point guards to replace Jose as a starter, (2) tried to trade him to the Bobcats, and (3) traded him to Detroit.

    All signs pointing to Jose signing up as a free agent with Toronto.

    Calderon is not the reason for a lack of success during his time in Toronto. He was a great teammate on and off the court throughout some pretty miserable years, including several rebuilds. As a veteran, pass-first veteran PG, who never publically does anything to create controversy, I think you'd be hard pressed to name a single PG that would bring more to the table to the Raptors.

    I don't buy it. The article doesn't look very legit and doesn't source anything. The chances a no name finds out and reports it before anyone credible are slim to none. I really don't think BC wants Jose back and that 2-3 million is a joke.

    Time to move on BC. I'm sure Jose already has.

    This is why you don't extend BC. He falls in love with players and has a hard time thinking out of the box.


    His comfort zone is too narrow, and our organization suffers as a result. I like Jose, but come on, a multi year contract? This is his contract year, never fall in love with players during their contract years. Jose did not looked this good when he had him for years and years, the sample sizes are important.
