Default Nice mention on ESPN about our PG's

Weekend Dime by Marc Stein

Quote:
The run of quality point guards confronting Steve Nash and the Suns can actually be stretched in Box 1. After the back-to-back-to-back encounters with the upper crust -- Deron Williams, Chris Paul and Tony Parker -- Nash will be hounded by the fleet Devin Harris in his return to Dallas next Wednesday, then sees Toronto in the Suns' next home game Dec. 22.

It's not yet known if T.J. Ford will be playing in a week after his harrowing fall in Atlanta, but Jose Calderon continues to be one of the NBA's best bargains at a salary just under $2.5 million.

Calderon is 10th in the league in assists at 7.6 per game and a runaway No. 1 in assist-to-turnover ratio at 6-to-1. The closest full-time point guard to Calderon in that category is Detroit's Chauncey Billups at 3.86-to-1.

Why? You think all this exposure is going to get teams to realize his value which in turn means they'll open the vault to try and sign him this summer, forcing our hand which might put some restrictions on whether we can afford to sign him or not?

Exclamation

Just wondering if BC will try to work out a contract extention before the season is over with Jose . If Jose continues to shine he will be a hot commodity in the summer . I believe that Jose will wait and see whats out there in the summer $$$$$ wise . So here comes the business side of the game. Will BC be aggressive and offer a contract extention to Jose ? This will force Jose in a position to sign now or wait until the summer. If Jose decides to wait until the summer and play the market game will BC make a trade fearing that Jose will go for the money $$$$$$.
