More rumblings about Raptors uncertainty about Calderon?

Don't know how much credibility Jeff Blair has but here's what he wrote today in his blog.

Quote:
At any rate, I’ve said all along that the Raptors need a more commanding presence at point guard than Jose Calderon (certainly more of a risk-taker) and I know there are people in the organization who feel that way, so for that reason I have to think Jonny Flynn was their guy, despite all the pre-draft quibble. We’re going to spend all year doing the 'Whither Chris Bosh?’ thing but make no mistake: the point is going to be a position of much conjecture, too. The draft solved nothing in that area.
BC said yesterday during a 1 on 1 interview after introducing DD, that he had a possible trade on the table which was discussed draft night that wouldn't be able to be done until after July 1st. Could Calderon be trade for another player that will be S&T to the Raptors? Either way it sounds like someone maybe on their way to Toronto in S&T (coming in or going out) Marion perhaps??

I dont get this..Jose probably has the most heart and character of anyone on the team..he is the only one who has the balls to step up to KG..and not playing for Spain displays his commitment to this team and how dissapointed he is over the shortcomings of last season..trading him now would be nonsensical..

I think it's a deal for Marion if he decides not to stay. Which i'm sure has been discussed as a possibility with other teams. Even though i think BC knows by now if he's staying, or at least has a damn good idea on wether or not he's staying.

There is nothing to get. He has no hard proof that Flynn was their guy. Speculation. And there's nothing for this guy to write outside of speculation. His own opinion clearly reflects where he puts the thoughts of the Raptor braintrust.

Yep - if Jose is traded it's part of a huge deal overall. A lot is going to depend on what happens with Marion.

I agree. I think one big trade will occur this summer along with a couple signings of course. BC looks very pleased with himself lately and i think he's got a few good deals ready to roll next week.He knows that if he has a snowball's chance in hell at keeping Chris Bosh after next season that he needs to be pro active to improve this team.

BTW, the cash they recieved in the Marion deeal and didn't use on Thursday...how can that be utilized?

Not that i believe this Jose talk, but i don't exactly have much confidence in Doug Smitheither, to say the least.

Since he didn't use it for a draft, I guess it'll be included with that/those big trades we're hoping for.

trading jose would be the dumbest thing to do... he is soo skilled and a second tier point guard in the league ( derrick rose, chris paul, d. williams are the first tier) ... i would say a better fit for the raps than the aging steve nash (not a knock on steve but i think he has shown signs of aging last season)... the first priority for BC this summer is to resign marion and somehow find some scoring off the bench because DD and roko Ukic wont cut it.
