unless we have our eyes set on some big time FA, it would be a mistake to amnesty Calderon... and since the really good FAs are pretty much off the market, it doesnt make sense to amnesty him. we'd be just giving away (in my opinion) the best backup PG in the league for free.
whats the risk in holding onto him? there is no risk. he expires next year and will be 10mil off the books for us. so even if he gets injured and we cant trade him, he's still an expiring contract.
his trade value alone will be greater the longer we hold onto him (as long as he doesnt get hurt).
