Default The waiting game - Jose Calderons deal

Okay so lets pick a date and guess.

Firstly it would be "stupid" to amnesty Jose's Contract set to expire this year. A dozen teams would love a $10.5 million expirer I am sure for FA runs next year... even if Howard is sent to NY.

(not that its past this ownership group to do something stupid tho )

Bottom line is with Lowry here Jose will move for assets.

Before season starts ?
Trade deadline?
Soemwhere in between ?

My guess is trade deadline... yours ?

Who or what for ??

My guess - a middling vet small forward - possibly Iggy.

I'd say a trade at the deadline for a 2nd round pick. Oh, the excitement.

Todays news - the 76ers make another move.

"All they need now is to sign a back up PG" for Jrue H"

I think I know a good one with an expirng contract.

The more the rumors are refuted the more I think there is fire near the smoke.

I thing Dre - Iggy is coming to TO

Dre is something like $15 M for 2 more years. $10.4 Million of that is Jose Calderon. Since I guess we are "at the cap" and unwilling to pay a tax you gotta throw Kleiza in on the deal to match up very closely.


So you end up with something like

Lowry / Uzoh (or other D league player)
Derozan / Ross / JJohnson (rotation for mismatches)
Iggy / Fields / JJohnson
Bargnani / Ed Davis/ Amir
Val / Gray / Amir

Still a little weak at PG by loosing Bayliss but there are others we could offer a MLE out there...

Looks like Jonny Flynn wont be signed by Portland so perhaps you give Flynn the nod at back up.
