HoopsHype Jose Calderon rumors
Ian Begley: Looks like Jose Calderon has a wrap on his left foot/ankle. Doesn't seem like a major issue but we'll find out more from Fisher shortly. Twitter @IanBegley
The Knicks have a core of leadership, including president Phil Jackson, coach Derek Fisher and point guard Jose Calderon, who have strong history and relationships with Gasol, and those factors would have to play a part in overcoming the fact the Knicks can pay Gasol only the taxpayer's exception starting at $3.28 million annually.

Sam Amick: Chatted w/ Jose Calderon's agent,Mark Bartelstein, about the PG's new locale in NY. Said Jose is perfect for the Phil/Derek Fisher triangle. Twitter @sam_amick
Adrian Wojnarowski: In proposed deal, Dallas would send the Knicks its 2014 second round picks: Nos. 34 and 51, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Twitter @WojYahooNBA
Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks, who immediately made reacquiring Chandler one of their priorities after their first-round playoff exit against San Antonio, soon will complete a trade with the Knicks that they will clinch by agreeing to take back the contract of New York's out-of-favor guard, Raymond Felton, as well. The trade is expected to cost Dallas two starters -- point guard Jose Calderon and center Samuel Dalembert -- along with prized young point guard Shane Larkin, reserve guard Wayne Ellington and future second-round draft compensation.

Sources tell Stein that the teams are in the process of setting up a call with the league office to get the requisite approval on the trade. Chandler is the player Dallas has missed most since it decided to let go several key contributors in free agency after the team's championship run in 2011. ESPN.com
