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
