grabbing a contract and a pick would be a great deal for jose in my opinion. who cares what happens this year and next year harris can just as easily come off the bench like borbosa.
i also think that a good trade for jose means we probably wont be using our amnesty at all.
if you start when they were both 24 nash has always been the better player.
i didn't say trade jose for nash i said trade jose if you are sure you can get nash or a really good pg prospect. i really don't think that jose has many superb years left. this year could be the year everything just happens to go right for him and we need to accept that. if he just keeps this up then all the better to him but his past history shows a player who goes through peaks and valleys. no reason that would all of a sudden change because he is older now.
nash has an amazing workout schedule to cope with his bad back. and takes summers off. jose plays high intensity basketball all year long.
remember 5 years ago how excited and happy we were that jose was looking like one of the best pgs in the league? that time has come back and we need to watch out because right after this time comes the calf injury and the down time and then the "why didn't we amnesty him" time.

If we could pull off a trade like this I would be thrilled. I've always been a fan of Devin Harris despite his struggles since joining the Jazz. Getting an additional unprotected pick from the Jazz would be icing on the cake. Going into a contract year next year i'm sure Devin will have lots to prove. He still has loads of talent and I think a change of scenery would suit him just fine. Sign me up!
If the pick is one of Utah's lottery picks I'd do it in a heartbeat. Too bad salary rules would have to apply.. I'd honestly take a bag of hotdogs if it means we don't have to pay Devin Harris for two more years.
I know Jose's been a really nice guy and very loyal to the organization, but ive come to realize that at the end of the day, the NBA is less basketball/camaraderie now and more of a business, so if it nets the Raps a high pick in expense of Jose then i think they really need to do it.
What im hoping for then later on is when Jose's contract expires, the Raps will offer him say 10mil for 5 years and he eventually retires as a Raptor and gets a job with the organization in player development or as a scout in europe.
Damn it. Cant link to it from my iPhone (I'm i-retarded) but we've talked about it already ad nauseum.
I don't think Calderon specifically asked to be traded. He was asked by some Spanish media (I think) about his feelings "IF" he was traded to a contender, and like any normal human being, Calderon said he would embrace it....or something along those lines. He didn't exactly pull a Dwight Howard.

Definition of Statistics: The science of producing unreliable facts from reliable figures.
- he didn't ask to be traded. Question asked was would he like to play for a contender - if he said no there would be a bigger problem.
- Devin Harris straight up for Calderon is an awful deal.
- Myck is definitely not a 11/12 pick. The lowest I saw him was around 15-17 and that was weeks ago at DraftExpress. They currently dropped him from the 2012 mock draft.
