Ever since the Raptors' acquisition of Kyle Lowry, there has been a steady flow of rumors revolving around Jose Calderon's future, or lack thereof, in Toronto. Calderon, who will run the point for Spain's Olympic team later this month in London, has already expressed his discontent with the thought of being relegated to back up duties, but according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun, he may not have a choice.
Wolstat caught up with Toronto GM Bryan Colangelo who said, “We have had a few more trade inquiries regarding Jose (but) the scenario doesn’t seem to present itself to a trade today, but we’ll continue to monitor that and just try to determine whether it’s going to work in the long run.” Colangelo also implied that amnestying Calderon is not in the plans.
Here are some more updates from around the league on Sunday night:
- Since the Hornets matched the Suns' offer for restricted free agent Eric Gordon, the Suns have now been linked with Courtney Lee and O.J. Mayo, tweets Marc Stein. Stein says they're trying to keep Shannon Brown in Phoenix as well.
- With Brian Shaw and Michael Malone no longer in the running for the Magic job, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel tweets that the remaining candidates are most likely Jacque Vaughn, Lindsey Hunter, Jeff Hornacek and Michael Curry.
- ESPN's J.A. Adande makes a case for why the Rockets could be appealing to Dwight Howard. General manager Daryl Morey is relentlessly pursuing the Magic center, despite Howard expressing minimal interest in re-signing in Houston.
