Hawks Hoping To Sign Jose Calderon

The Hawks hope to sign point guard Jose Calderon by Saturday, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

If the deal goes through, Atlanta would be Calderon’s third team this week. He agreed to a buyout with the Lakers on Monday, then was signed and released by the Warriors on Wednesday. The league notified teams this week that Calderon was waived by Golden State in time to be eligible for the playoffs (Twitter link).

Calderon’s waiver process will expire at 5 pm on Saturday, Stein notes (Twitter link). Atlanta can either submit a waiver claim or hope that he clears waivers and sign him as a free agent.

Rumors have linked the Hawks to Calderon in recent days as they search for a backup to Dennis Schroder. Atlanta has an open roster spot after waiving Lamar Patterson last week. The team tried combo guard Gary Neal earlier this season, but prefers a pure point guard to fill in for Schroder.

The 35-year-old Calderon averaged about 12 minutes per night with the Lakers, putting up 3.3 points and 2.1 assists in 24 games.

    Not a bad pickup, but they aren’t going to go anywhere. They should have sold on Millsap and try and get another first this year. Thank god they have Wolves first rounder next season.

      The hawks have been competing with cavs this year. They beat them and just lost by 5. The hawks are better than last year

    Lol called this…I’d like to see one of their young guys get some more minutes on the wing, and I would like to possibly see a different rotation for them…I think it might fit them a little better if Bazemore came off the bench, with this roster.

    Schroeder, Hardaway, Sefolosha, Milsap, Dwight
    Bazemore, Taurean Prince, Ilyasova, Dunleavy, Delaney/Calderon, Humphries/Muscala seems like a more balanced and versatile rotation

      I was thinking hardaway instead of sefolosha and start baze

    Random question: if the Warriors were to win it all, Calderon wouldn’t get a ring would he? I know technically he was part of the team, but he didn’t even suit up for them. I was having this discussion with a friend so I was wondering what would happen.

      I don’t know. Anderson Varejao got a ring last year, but he actually played a little.
