Trade deadline deals

Jose Calderon – Toronto Raptors

The Raptors have tried to trade Jose Calderon several times over the last two years, but this might be the year they can actually pull it off. Jose is entering the final year of his deal and at the trade deadline the Raptors will have paid more than 70% of the $10.561 million remaining on the deal.

The Raptors traded for Kyle Lowry this offseason and he is expected to be the starter, although the Raptors are saying roles will be defined in training camp.

With Jose at the end of his deal the Raptors will likely get something in return for him and given how bad that contract looked two seasons ago, that’s tremendous progress.

What the Raptors can expect in return is still very much up in the air, but what was once a huge liability might actually turn into a reasonable trade chip especially as the dollars owed start to get paid down.
