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.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
