Simple Trade:

Boston Receives: Jose Calderon
Raptors Receives: Brandon Bass, Courtney Lee

Gets us a more reliable backup point guard, who can play some 2 and it'd get us out of two contracts that are probably a little too much and a little too long for their role in our rotation going forward.

We have very little big man depth as is and lost of guard depth.

If the raptors are interested in Bass and Lee then it would become a 3 team trade. This team doesn't need a Calderon level backup pg. AB and terry will be fine spelling rondo a few minutes a game, especially with pierce on the court with them.

Calderon is too good to be a 10-12 minute a night backup. Only a 6-8 minute a night guy in the playoffs. He needs the ball in his hands offensively to have value. To run the offense. Otherwise, he is basically Steve Blake. Calderon doesn't add value as a two guard playing off the ball. His limitations as a defender/rebounder take more off the table than his largely one dimensional (when off the ball) offensive game adds (large net negative as SG). Consequently, both Bass and Lee offer more value to Boston than Calderon does. There just isn't a role big enough here for Calderon to succeed.

The Raptors have no use for Bass or Lee. Both players would be seen as having negative trade value due to their contracts. The Raptors have Bargnani, Ed Davis and then Amir Johnson at power forward. At shooting guard, they have DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson. They have no need for Lee or Bass. They are just dead weight on their salary cap.

Both Boston and Toronto would get worse with this trade.

You want to send away our starting 4 and our already reliable back up 2 guard for a player who is going to play 12 minutes behind Rondo if hes lucky?

Next.

I love Calderon, he's an excellent player, but Boston is not the right place for him.

If dallas still have collison in the dog house come trade week they should look to trade for him. Calderon is highly underutilized in toronto and has played just as good as lowry since he has been there.
