Catch 22.

If Jose is your 2nd best player you're not a good team. Also, he is right now our biggest tradeable asset because of the way he's playing. Teams that are trying to build something have to know when to trade an asset to try and aquire more assets that can help in the future. And since Colangelo has pretty much come out and said we need a PG for the future, he's admiting that Jose isn't part of the long term plans here......so why keep him when he's at his highest value? The intelligent thing to do is at the very least shop him and see what type of return you can get for him, even if you have to throw in an Ed Davis or future pick. If a deal isn't good enough to do, so be it. We're not being forced to trade him.
