I would definitely give up bass for calderons expiring even though a loathe Calderon. However we would need a big filler contract to move as well and I don't wanna move lee or terry just for an expiring deal.

Why do you loathe Calderon?  Seems like a solid PG to me. He can shoot the 3; doesn't turn the ball over much. Isn't he pretty steady?

There is just something about his game that I just cringe when watching. He's got a lot of Sasha Vujecic in him for me and I just cant stand it.

Playwise, he is kinda of hard to bash. He plays hard and does what he needs to do...Just something about him that I cant stand for some reason.

Several league officials tell Y! Sports that Memphis has a plan to route Jose Calderon to a third team for assets in Rudy Gay deal.

Who will be the 3rd team

Hmm...maybe Utah?  They're hard up for a PG and aren't carrying much payroll, and are small enough that they might want to dump some salary.  Not sure how the numbers would work though.  Maybe Marvin Williams?

I agree dude just comes off soft to me and like he'd be rattled in the playoffs

The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors have agreed in principle on a trade that will send leading scorer Rudy Gay to the Raptors, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.


Gay
Sources told ESPN.com that the Grizzlies will acquire forward Ed Davis and veteran guard Jose Calderon from the Raptors and then move Calderon on to a third team to ultimately make this a three-team deal.

The Detroit Pistons, sources said, are one of the prime options to take on Calderon, having pursued the Spanish floor leader all season.

The Grizzlies want a small forward out of the trade and Detroit has two on its roster in the final year of their contract: Tayshaun Prince and Corey Maggette. But Memphis, sources said, is talking to at least one other team about taking on Calderon and is expected to receive a second-round pick from Toronto as part of the deal.

The Raptors, sources said, are expected to take on Grizzlies reserve center Hamed Haddadi in addition to Gay.

The Dallas Mavericks are the other most likely landing spot for Calderon, but sources said Dallas is resistant to parting with Vince Carter, Memphis' prime target on the Mavs' roster.

I'd love Calderon here but we'd have to trade Bass to take on the contract right?

Just to get rid of Brandon Bass for an expiring contract would be a home run for Boston.

To get a quality starting point guard like Jose Calderon to boot? Incredible.

Griz sending Gay/Haddadi to Raptors for Ed Davis/2013 2nd round pick. Raps sending Jose Calderon to Detroit or Dallas for Prince or Carter
