Jose Calderon would like to know where he is playing next season

calderon.jpgJose Calderon was the best point guard Toronto had last season, he played above average and by the end of the year took the starting job from Jarrett Jack, but Bryan Colangelo is apparently not a fan. Or at least is not a fan of the three years, $29 million Calderon is still owed.

Colangelo tried to bring a new point guard in at the trade deadline last year. He thought he had a deal to ship him out to Charlotte and get two big men back as part of a complex deal this summer, but then Michael Jordan realized he was getting hosed and pulled out.

Calderon is currently in the Canary Islands, training with the rest of the Spanish national team, but he told Sportando he would love to know where he will be playing next year.

“I feel well. I am focused on Spain. My future will be known when Toronto and my agents will take a decision. They are working daily for the best solution for me and the franchise. Now, there is anything new to say,” said Calderon.

So we might still see a move this summer, or closer to training camp. But you can bet Colangelo is still looking for a home for Calderon even as we enter the slow part of the summer.

    I don’t know what it is about Calderon, but I always kick ass with him in NBA2k. Like, he gets to the basket like no other. And, also, he racks up crazy amounts of assists. Like this one time he came in the game off the bench, and finished as my top assist guy. He had like 12 in 7 minutes and stuff. Insane. If I was a GM, I would be all over him just for that. Cuz I would base my scouting/moves off a players performance in a video game, naturally.

    I thought Calderon was better than he ended up being ranked among NBA point guards. But I guess the numbers don’t lie – he ended up behind Jarret Jack and ranked 28th –

    This post is clueless. Calderon was the starter as the season opened, and he LOST his job to Jack by the end of the year because he completely collapsed. He couldn’t be counted on at all, especially in tight spots near the end of games. Believe me, I watched more than a few games from pretty close. He wasn’t and isn’t the best PG we have here in Toronto, not right now.
