Maybe the situation will change later, but as of right now, the Raptors need to sign Calderon and keep him on this team.
That all depends on who they can get for Calderon and if the Raptors go with Ford for the future.
As I've stated, I think Ford is the better player now and has more potential. It'll be up to Colangelo to decide whether he risks Ford's health for the bigger possible reward or risks giving up Ford's talent (probably for not a lot in return) due to fear of injuries and plays it safe with Calderon. They'll have to go one of these directions because the Raptors don't have enough talent elsewhere to be able to keep a luxury such as 2 starting point guards and still be a great team.
