ESPN Chat Wrap - Raptor Related

Chris Broussard from ESPN answered some questions today.

SportsNation Chris Broussard: I trade TJ. They're definitely going to keep Calderon, and they're trying to trade TJ. The Clips need a PG, but they're not giving up Brand or Maggette for TJ. Miami wants a PG, assuming they don't get Rose, but they wouldn't give up Marion for TJ.

SportsNation Chris Broussard: Rapts love Calderon, so I don't see him being moved. I guess it's possible, though. I don't do that deal if I'm Cleveland.

TJ Ford is also much better then you give him credit for - he has a reasonable contract that is insured in case of a spinal injury. He just put up the 6th best PER among PGs (20.37) and now has one of the best midrange Js in the entire league.

SportsNation Chris Broussard: First of all, I said I didn't think Minny would do that trade, so I don't understand your point. I agree with you. Secondly, I like TJ, but I think you're overestimating his midrange J a bit.

Where do you think he scores most of his points? His fading/stepback jumper from the foul line is his pet move and he hits on a good % of them.

yup. TJ's shot definately improved as the season went on. I actually thought he became a pretty reliable shooter.

Yeah, it was his driving to the hoop that made me more nervous. Not necessarily his shot.
