Wut??

06-07 he came off the Bench, and we had a great 1+2 punch.

He killed 2nd units that year

Not worked in the past? You mean because Jose was better than TJ? What hasn't worked?
You can work anything with Jose in the team!

I thought we might net a second round pick or a bench player. I guess no one interested in s and trade. It's Lowry and Calderon moving forward; not a bad thing.

So, still wanna boo?

Like I said, BC is not going to throw Calderon away. In fact, if as I suspect Jose is absolutely fine coming off the bench, he will be the perfect backup for us once more and might just get re-juvenated again.

New SF is still possible, albeit quite unlikely. It's just that Calderon won't be a part of that deal.

we package Amir Derozan and LK/JJ we should have enough money for a good sf, no need to rush though

I still think Jose is the main piece to bring a guy in.... it's just that Bayless isn't seen by the team as capable of manning the point full-time. He's got the swagger to score but he's terrible at running the offense and getting others involved. Unfortunately, we're now loaded at SG.

He isn't, though. The only way that would happen is to take on a longer, now unwanted deal for an expiring contract - and why would you want such a player back? On the other hand, if Jose were to play out his current deal and re-sign at an affordable rate to finish his career here as a backup, can you think of a better insurance, leader and mentor at the position?

why would it have to be a longer, unwanted deal? Why couldn't it be Iggy or someone like that?

I don't like this move just because it means were going to keep Calderon. I wouldn't mind Calderon off the bench if he wasn't such a valuable trading piece, he's both a good player and an expiring contract. He can easily net us a good player in a trade with say Ed Davis.

Also he's actually good enough that he's going to be in contention with Lowery for minutes. Yes the season will start off with Lowery starting but any time Lowery begins to struggle, he'll just get pulled out for Jose, who is Casey's favourite player on the team. That's what I didn't like about Casey this past season, he didn't let players play through struggle, namely Ed Davis, in a obvious throw away season. Imagine a season that matters with a shot at the playoffs, Casey will bench Lowery for sure if he has the Jose option. Lowery is an UFA in two years and we know he has problems with being benched, if Jose takes a lot of his minutes he's going to want to leave.

Yeah, Jose needs to go, amnesty him and pick up a back up, or package him for a SF, simple.
