Default Jose Calderon fires his agent

Jose Calderon recently fired his North American agent thinking that he will stay in Toronto.Their is more pressure on Bryan Colangalo to keep Jose Calderon now. I think this means that the Raptors are going to trade T.J Ford.

Nice.

A player without an agent SHOULD be easier to get at a lower price. Time for Colangelo to work his magic and bring down Calderon's price a little bit.

This is very true, it couldn't have happened at a better time either.

Doesn't he have a European agent though and does that matter?

He still has a European agent though. He has two agents, an American one and a European one. He fired the American one, but still has the European one.

He does. But the point of a Euro player hiring a North American agent before hitting free agency is so he's got someone familiar with the NBA to shop him hard around the league to find the best spot for the best money. Obviously Jose has gotten some kind of assurance by the Raps that they're keeping him no matter what, so there's no need to keep paying the guy.

So this pretty much means T.J Ford is done in Toronto. Cause Calderon is so sure that he doesn't need a North American agent to shop him in free agency.

But Calderon wants a big offer from other team to force the Raptors to match and pay him big money, doesn't he?

The only reason to fire his agent is that the deal is done and they are waiting to sign the contract until July the 1st. Would they have to wait or could they sign right now?
