Turkoglu is destined for Phoenix, Calderon is headed to Charlotte and the league sources were unsure who the third piece leaving Toronto is and where he’s going.

not a done deal, but it looks like Calderon is coming here

Thats what I thought could happen, I was wondering why we would not get him since we were making that trade. So Dwayne Jones and Calderon not bad at all.

They are also talking about getting rid of Chandler to Toronto to.

This is an excellent move by the Cats, they get Calderon and Jones

Plus the Cats get approximatley $12,701,441 dollars they can use to sign a big free agent with or two decent free agents.

If that's true, then here's Calderon's career per 36min stats: 13pts 8.7ast 1.2stl 2tov 17.7PER (he's above average!) .496 FG%

He's a solid player and a pass-first PG. If the rumor is true, then you've got to like the move for the Bobcats. The only problem with Calderon is that he has about $30MM coming to him over the next three years.

That is equal to around Diaw's contract except for the fact that Diaw's is only two more years.

And with Chandler gone the Cats still get a butt load of room in cap space.

I think Diaw actually has a 3rd year player option so I doubt he'd pass that up if he was still with us.

We still need confirmation that Calderon and Chandler are going to be in the deal though. And we won't be getting that much in cap room, but we will be farther from the luxury tax, which would be a pretty big success. We still need a starting quality center, no matter how this all falls out.

Yeah, and I am hearing the only thing that is keeping this deal from being confirmed has something to do with Josh Childress.
