The Toronto Raptors are reportedly willing to trade away long-time point guard Jose Calderon, Marc Stein from ESPN reports. However, the Raptors will want something in return for Calderon and are looking to get another point guard in exchange for him.

“Sources with knowledge of Toronto’s thinking say that the team is not just going to give Calderon away, especially when he’s back to supplying a typically efficient 10.6 points and 8.7 assists nightly, but I’m told that the Raps are indeed open to moving him.”

The Lakers would surely benefit from acquiring Calderon, who is averaging 10.5 points and 8.4 assists per game this season. Calderon has been a consistent player all throughout his career but being with a small market team like the Raptors has hurt this image around the league. If Calderon played for a popular team like the Lakers or Knicks, he surely would receive much more recognition.

In addition, Pau Gasol would be able to play alongside his Spanish basketball teammate for the first time in the NBA. Gasol and Calderon will be joining forces in the 2012 Summer Olympics, and there is a chance they can do that with the Lakers.

    What is with all this talk of point guards who average around 10 point per game going to the lakers ?! Andrew Goudelock is averaging that in the last few games he’s played. The upgrade would be minimal at best.

      Calderon is an experienced pg GLOCK is a SG, if relied upon to spell Kobe while maintaining or increasing his output, it would be a great move. Think of the motivation he could provide his friend and teammate Pau.

    anyone else read martin padillas comments? what a fucking idiot HAHA “FISH CAN DO WATEVER CALDERON DOES…. and better…. so why are we not going at a real PG like MO WILLIAMS?”

  • LakerLyle

    No, don’t buy it. Deron Williams is still the best option. Mar.15 (Trade Deadline) will be another blockbuster trade for the Lakers, D-Will goes to Hollywood!

  • LakersNationGuest

    By March 15th who knows how many games behind we’ll be just to be the 8th seed in the West. We’ll be fighting with the Hornets just for a chance at the 10th spot lol. This season is not the year we win a title. I hope we can change things around next season or Kobe will never get his 6th ring :0/

    Toronto a small market team?? Its the 10th biggest market in the NBA. Get your facts straight you ignorant American…

  • Lbtweet

    Who would you trade for him?  The articles states that Toronto is looking to get another point guard for him.  I don’t think it would be wise to trade Goudelock.
