Raptors Casey wants Jose to continue shooting the ball more

Quote:
Jose Calderon is in his seventh year as a point guard for the Toronto Raptors.

Well, he has a new position. Sort of. Raptors coach Dwane Casey wants to see his point guard come off screens more to free himself for jumpshots.

“I do like him off the ball, where he comes off screens, pindowns,” Casey said. “Still, you’ve got another opportunity to set another pick-and-roll situation. So you could have multiple pick-and-rolls with him in the game. It gives us the versatility, especially with Jerryd coming back.”

You can understand what Casey is thinking. With Andrea Bargnani out of the lineup, a hot Calderon is the Raptors’ best shooter. Calderon is shooting 39-for-61 (64%) from the field over the last four games.
