   2017 NBA Manifesto

Jose Calderon
PG, 6’3, 200lbs, 35 years old, 12 years of experience

Even in the latter part of his career, Calderon is passable as a third stringer still. His shot was off this year, but this is surely just an anomaly rather than evidence of serious decline in by far his most important attrib-ute as a player. Heady and thoroughly undynamic, Calderon showed in game four of the playoffs that he still had good nights left in him. A minimum salary third string option only at this point, but one worth having.

Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary. Would be worthy of another one, but it is very low priority.

   The NBA's middle class: where fringe stars now hang out

[...] In comparison, 36 such players have signed within those parameters in 2013. And in contrast to 2008, those names are often established quality role players who aren't quite stars and who rightly aren't being paid like it. At the top end, players like Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon, Brandon Jennings, Jarrett Jack, Jeff Teague and Carl Landry are all getting acceptable prices, perhaps $2 million annually less than they would have done five years ago. At the bottom end, established role players like Marreese Speights, Tony Allen and Chris Kaman are getting paid adequately for their useful role player production. And unlike in 2008, those deals like Kaman's are not too long. See also Greg Stiemsma, Tyler Hansbrough, Mike Dunleavy Jr, Dorell Wright and Randy Foye, none more than three years in length, some as short as one.

The exact parameters employed here are somewhat arbitrarily chosen, I admit. However, a comparison of some particular players to have been involved in both markets sheds light on the market fluctations. Despite being much the same player, many individuals received very different paychecks. Ellis received $66 million in 2008 and $25.08 million in 2013. Calderon received $45 million in 2008 and $29 million in 2013. Jason Maxiell received $20 million in 2008 and $5 million in 2013. And while Martell Webster received $20,112,000 for four years in 2008, he only received ... well, OK, maybe not him, as he received $21,990,500 for another four years this summer.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 24th November 2017

As the Cavaliers struggle with injuries and a seemingly interminable lack of point guard depth, the man brought in at the start of the offseason to be that depth, Jose Calderon, is intermittently called upon to fill in. After a string of seven consecutive DNP-CDs, Calderon has played double figure minutes in the last three games, including starting the last two. And while his days as an impact player are now past him, Calderon can still hit jump shots and handle the ball reasonably reliably if thoroughly undynamically. With all the Cavaliers’ injured guards still out tonight, Calderon might start again. And if he does, a night much like the 17.5 fantasy point average he has had over those two starts is plenty foreseeable.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
