True enough. It looks like we are in a stretch of young and low paid players for a little while. I have said before that if Jose were being paid a lot lower, I don't mind him being on this team. When it comes time to ante up on other guys, he can re-sign for 2.5 mil...becoming the Raptors all time assist leader. Jose Calderon. Raptor for life!
