Hardaway also agreed with the idea that the two had the flexibility to share the on- and off-ball responsibilities as they have done in the first few games. Budenholzer thought Hardaway Jr. would be happy simply to be reunited with José Calderón, the person. “José is just an incredible human being and teammate,” Budenholzer said, “so Timmy is probably excited to see someone like that added to the team. He’s such an unselfish point guard. He’s always looking for shooters.” Then Coach Bud broke into a smile. “The shooters like those guys.”
“No, it’s hard to say,” Budenholzer said before Monday’s game against the Warriors when asked if Calderon would be the backup. “I think Malcolm has been great all year. We are really pleased with how he’s played. Malcolm brings a lot to the table. But I think it’s great to have Jose as another … to get through the majority of the season without a third point guard is unusual.”
Coincidentally, the Hawks play the Warriors in their second game after claiming Calderon. “Maybe will give him his jersey that we had all marked up for him,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr joked Monday. “… I feel genuinely bad for Jose. Happy for him that Atlanta picked him up. He’ll get a chance to play in the playoffs, which I know is important for him. Play for a good coach on a good team. But I feel bad for the way things turned out for us. But I know he understands the way the NBA works in strange ways.”
