Thumbs up Calderon Looking At A $40 Million Deal With Raps

What do you think? Will it be over 4, 5 or 6 years?

Speculation in NBA circles is that Calderon, confident that he was going to resign with the Raptors, felt he didn't need an NBA agent to stir up competing offers from rival clubs. Presuming his two agents were splitting the standard four-per-cent fee most players pay their representatives, firing Bass could save Calderon $800,000 on a $40-million contract.
