Jose Calderon RumorsAll NBA Players
Josh Lewenberg: This is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 1st game in Canada since his soph year in high school. He spent a lot of time in this building as a kid, growing up a Raptors fan. Vince Carter? “More like Chris Bosh, TJ Ford & Jose Calderon era.” (He wasn’t even 2yo when VC won the dunk off)
Keith Langlois: You didn’t have a lot to work with in free agency, yet you wound up satisfying some critical needs. Glenn Robinson, it looks like, will be in the rotation at minimum and the two veterans, Jose Calderon and Zaza, are the kind of guys who find ways to help even if they’re not playing. How critical was it for you to add those two for what they might mean for leadership and presence as much as for what they can still contribute as players? Dwane Casey: Huge. Big time. I see both of them contributing because of Jose’s 3-point shooting. He did a great job in Cleveland last year and to get those guys, Ed and his staff did a great job of what we had to work with as far as our cap is concerned. They did a great job of plucking those guys off and getting the guys who are really going to help us.
