San Antonio Spurs
Like the Mavericks, Heat and the Lakers, the Spurs did have interest in Calderon, but only if he was waived through the amnesty provision. The deadline has passed however a deal could still be had.
Despite signing French combo-guard Nando De Colo, the Spurs are still looking for a point guard to play behind Tony Parker. They were seriously interested in Bo McCalebb, a star in Macedonia and the Euroleague, but due to his buyout, the team canít sign him.
A possible trade would involve Stephen Jackson, who is included for salary matching purposes, and Pickering, Ont. native Cory Joseph, who the Raptors were targeting at the 2011 NBA Draft. Joseph has played very well in the NBDL last season and earned All-Star honours for his strong performance at the 2012 Las Vegas Summer League.
Jacksonís disruptive attitude would be a cause for concern, but the team could always handle him the way the Chicago Bulls handled Tim Thomas during the 2005-06 regular season. Sending him home would give him more time to work on his rap career.
Worst case scenario, the Raptors can just waive him or try to move him to a third team. His expiring contract would be very useful during the trade deadline.
