And I'm with Claudius, we don't need a returning point guard. At this point of the season, it is evident that we are not competing this season. We might as well get a better option at point guard during the off season with a go at free agency. In addition, it doesn't make sense for a team to give up a point guard to get Calderon; any takers for Jose would probably look for help at the PG position.
Agreed! Especially about the injuries thing... He's healthy right now, but if his hammy goes down (anti-jinx), so does his trade value again.

Ideally, I'd trade Jose + a piece, for a young PG prospect and an expiring and/or low draft pick.
