Default ESPN Insider: Top five sell-high candidates

Jose Calderon, Toronto Raptors

Calderon is moderately overpaid but nevertheless is enjoying a sterling season in his first campaign under coach Dwane Casey. That said, Calderon is nearing 31 years of age and is not going to be a part of the next good Raptors team. He has just one more year left on his contract after this season. On one hand, you can look ahead and decide that Calderon's expiring deal will have more value next year at this time. However, do you really want to chance a drop in his production next season?

It's essential that the Toronto brain trust of Bryan Colangelo and Ed Stefanski do an accurate survey of the landscape. There are at least two quasi-contenders -- the Lakers and Magic -- desperate for help at the point guard position. It might take a three- or four-team scenario to deliver the future-friendly assets that Toronto covets, but that's the route the Raptors should be taking.
