Raptors’ Calderon Not an Amnesty Target?
Don’t hold your breath on the Raptors using the amnesty clause this season.
Certainly where Jose Calderon is concerned, you can pretty much forget about it.
Calderon, who has a year left and 10.561-million on his contract has been speculated in the past as a potential amnesty target.
“There is no promise or assurance there and I’d say based on the progress of Jose Calderon — he’s the one that everyone targets as that potential amnesty piece — I can share with you that there is tremendous value on this team for Jose Calderon within the coaching staff, within the management team, within the locker room,” (Bryan) Colangelo said. “All of our post-season meetings with the players led us to a clear conclusion that there’s a few leaders in that locker room and one of them is Jose Calderon. The players have a tremendous amount of respect for him.”
