Default Report: Blazers heavily pursued Calderon

Reports indicate Portland GM Kevin Pritchard went after Toronto’s Jose Calderon around the trade deadline:

The Blazers, who have been hurt this season by inconsistent play at the position, did more than window shop for a point guard at the Feb. 21 trading deadline. A Western Conference source said the Blazers heavily pursued Toronto point guard Jose Calderon, only to have their offers rebuffed by the Raptors. (Oregonian as shown on HoopsHype’s rumors section this morning)

Of course, the Raptors kept Calderon. And the Spaniard won’t leave the T-Dot this summer when he becomes a restricted free agent. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, a wealthy company that owns the Raptors and the city’s NHL franchise, will match any offer he receives.
