He will be traded... It is just a matter of WHEN and for WHAT.

at the deadline, he'll have very high value for teams looking to pick up a quality piece for a deep run. The question will be are we buying or selling at the deadline.....despite what our record says right now, BC may want to do the crazy thing and buy.
lowry is better for "so called" motion offense but he has the same problem like jose: there is no much motion on the floor. lowry is more inpatient, forces things, and has the tendency to take over the offense when there are no good passing options. but taking over limits even more the contribution from the other players on the floor.
i understand why casey tends to play lowry off the ball late in the games. he wants to use his shooting and slashing abilities. the problem is that casey does not run plays that will allow lowry to get the ball in positions where his slashing is effective enough. this is why even with two pgs on the floor the offense dies or is a desperate 1-on-1 struggle in the last minutes of almost every game.
one more thing which i've observed is that sometimes both pgs are trying to give the ball to a certain player but without a proper play in place, for example to bargs. this end up bad because the defense of the other team sees clearly what is to come and neutralizes the attack. bargs or demar are not talented enough to take the ball from anywhere on the floor and score. they need easy shots in order to be more effective.
again missing x and os make the offense very mechanical and predictable regardless of who is running it.
so my conclusion is that both pgs performances are affected by the same problem: half court offense without a proper set of plays and with limited movement.

I think Casey tries to reconciliate our lack of playmaking from other positions by supplementing an additional PG into the line up but because of Lowry's and Calderon's divisive personalities, the theory doesn't really translate well on the court.

the best players to get the ball deep with the back to the basket are val and ed but there are very few plays run for them. most of the plays are for bargs and amir which don't have traditional back to the basket games.

Are people seriously that lazy? All you have to do is hold down the shift key when you press the first letter of your sentence, if you only have one hand you should still be able to do it.
With the way the season is going, i think it would be a good thing to trade Calderon at the deadline for nothing. If we are going to suck, we might as well be at the very bottom instead of having the 5th or 6th worst record and losing our draft pick.

Jose has trade value probably more so for his 11 million expiring than what he brings or does not .
