One of the observers said that Calderon is the only keeper on the roster, not because he’s played well — he hasn’t — since coming over in the Chandler trade, but dealing away one of the few professionals left on the roster just opens another hole. “His money is not crazy,” the executive said. “It’s a decent, fair contract and you can say, ‘I have my point guard,’ and address other positions because every one other than Carmelo is a problem.” Bergen Record

"It can happen," Calderon said before Wednesday's practice at O2 Arena. "Why are you going to be surprised? They're changing stuff. I don't know what's really on their minds right now. I have no idea what's going to happen. It's the NBA. It's a business. They have a plan. They really want that cap space. That's why they made some of the moves. It can happen again." Newsday

Team president Phil Jackson has started dealing veterans to clear cap space, and said "no one should be surprised" by what the Knicks do before the Feb. 19 trade deadline. Calderon is a prime candidate to be dealt since he makes $15.1 million over the next two years. "It can happen," Calderon said before Wednesday's practice at O2 Arena. "Why are you going to be surprised? They're changing stuff. I don't know what's really on their minds right now. I have no idea what's going to happen. It's the NBA. It's a business. They have a plan. They really want that cap space. That's why the made some of the moves. It can happen again." Newsday

Acquired in June in the eight-player trade that sent Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to Dallas, Calderon has had a disappointing season. The veteran point guard is averaging 9.2 points and 4.7 assists. But he said until something changes he will consider himself part of the future. "I came here thinking I was part of it," Calderon said. "I'm still thinking about it. It's nothing different yet. So I'm still part of it." Newsday

Calderon, meanwhile, has no shortage of admirers around the league despite his struggles this season, averaging a mere 9.3 points per game on 40.8-percent shooting. But the two years left on his contract after this season -- worth $15.1 million -- could make it difficult to move the 33-year-old Spaniard, ‎who arrived in New York in late June as the Knicks' foremost return in the Tyson Chandler deal with Dallas. Sources say Bargnani, meanwhile, is a candidate to be waived next month if New York can't find a deal for the former No. 1 overall pick and his $11.5 million expiring contract before the Feb. 19 deadline for deals.

“I think or I hope nobody on the team wants to quit. We’re going to have to play until the end. I don’t care if it’s 5-and-100. We have to go out there every night and play hard,” Calderon said after the Knicks lost for the 13th time in 14 games. “We’re trying to build something. We’re trying to get something done here. We don’t know what’s going to happen, what the future is going to be for us or even what is going to happen tomorrow after all that’s going on in the NBA. New York Daily News

“I think Calderon is going to be a huge boost,” Anthony said. “I really like his game and I think he’s going to be a really good fit in that system. He obviously can shoot the basketball, spaces the floor well, has a really high basketball IQ, he’s really good at the pick-and-roll. All those things bode well and he also knows how to play without basketball, which you do more and more within that triangle.” New York Post
