We should be trying to resign Calderon to a more team friendly deal, not trying to trade him. He is arguably the most efficient PG in the league right now, and one of the best pure shooters on our team. He is a PG that is able to make everyone around him better, and he is someone the other team must respect from behind the arc.
With the frequency of Lowry's injuries, I don't know how anyone would want to get rid of Calderon. Do you really want to see more of JL3....who seems to simply just play 1-on-1 every time he comes into the game?
I am actually excited to see what this team can do once we have JV coming off the bench against other teams second units.
I like the guy and definitely has been our best PG the last few games but for the same reasons why I didn't want Nash, I don't think he can be a good part of our core going forward.
Not to mention if Lowry becomes the main PG again we can keep JL3 and easily draft or sign veteran guys that can hold the fort and let guys liek Ross and AA handle the scoring of the bench.

Firing Coangelo will help lead this team to better trading and FA signings. I say dangle Calderon trade talks for a competent big. Make a move for Demarcus Cousins.
What would you give up?Impact Players Most Likely To Be Moved
(Ranked from most likely to least likely to be traded)
1. Josh Smith, F, Hawks
Smith has been on the trade block for several years, but the Hawks always pull back at the last second. Once again Smith is the talk of the NBA after he was thrown out of practice Tuesday and suspended for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn. His agent says Smith is frustrated, but hasn't demanded a trade.
The Hawks have been fielding calls, but have been reluctant to trade him because they believe Smith's presence in Atlanta could be a powerful lure for Dwight Howard this summer. But with Howard's situation up in the air, the time seems right for the Hawks and Smith to move on. Dallas, Houston, Boston, Milwaukee, Toronto and the Lakers are all potential suitors. The biggest question is: What is the price tag for a mercurial forward who is entering his prime and will be a free agent this summer?
Ed Davis and Bargs?
Bargnani and Derozan
^^^^ Agreed. 1/2 + 1/2=a true 1.
FOR EVERY TWO POINTS HE SCORE, HE GIVES UP A THREE
We need a Fundamentally Sound Shooting GuardHe better score 30 a night if he plans not to defend or rebound
