The Cavs would be interested in signing Jose Calderon, Deron Williams, or Andrew Bogut if any of those three gets bought out after the trade deadline, according to ESPN's Marc Stien.
As Stein points out, trading for any of those three would be extremely difficult given the Cavs' various salary-cap and asset limitations. Thus, Calderon is considered the most likely to shake loose and actually land in Cleveland. Nonetheless, even if Calderon did eventually get waived by the Lakers and signed by the Cavs, his fantasy value would remain limited. He can be left on the waiver wire. Feb 4 - 11:58 AM

Jose Calderon picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Example A of why Calderon will be irrelevant with D'Angelo Russell healthy again. Leave Calderon on the wire.
Feb 1 - 1:22 AM

Jose Calderon will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

Calderon's minutes likely won't eclipse the 10-minute mark with D'Angelo Russell active, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 31 - 2:31 PM

Jose Calderon started on Thursday against the Jazz but played just 12 minutes and was held scoreless with one rebound and one assist.

Calderon now has two consecutive scoreless games and has scored zero points in six of his last nine contests. Even with the injury to D'Angelo Russell (knee, calf), Calderon has zero fantasy appeal, especially with Russell eyeing a possible return on Tuesday.

Jose Calderon started Wednesday's game but he was a non-factor, finishing scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with two assists, one rebound and one turnovers in 15 minutes.

With D'Angelo Russell (knee, calf) out of commission for both Wednesday and Thursday, Calderon had an opportunity for temporary relevance. His dud tonight should be enough incentive to avoid him for Thursday's road game vs. Utah's tough defense.
Jan 26 - 1:30 AM

Jose Calderon will start and Brandon Ingram will move to the bench for Wednesday against the Blazers.

The Lakers had a historically bad loss on Sunday, so a change was likely to happen today. Calderon is still only worth a look in deep leagues due to his injury history and lower upside.
Jan 25 - 10:41 PM

Jose Calderon scored seven points with six assists, one rebound, one steal and one triple in 19 minutes vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Calderon started the second half because D'Angelo Russell left the game with a knee injury and wasn't able to return. Russell is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday and could miss time, but Calderon isn't an exciting pickup in most leagues. Calderon averaged 6.0 points and 3.7 assists in seven previous starts this season.
Jan 21 - 1:56 AM

Lakers coach Luke Walton said he has found it "tricky" to integrate Jose Calderon into the lineup.

The 32-year-old veteran is healthy again after recovering from a hamstring injury, but he hasn't played since Dec. 3 and Walton doesn't want to disrupt the chemistry between Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson off the bench. "We’d love to find opportunities to get Jose out there," Walton said. "If it comes, we’ll give it to him." With the Lakers sliding fast in the standings, we'd be surprised if Calderon's role grew significantly in the new year.
Jan 2 - 9:41 AM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.

Calderon was active on Sunday vs. the Clippers but did not enter the game. He should be left on the waiver wire.

Jose Calderon (hamstring) was active on Christmas Day vs. the Clippers.

We're taking the veteran point guard off of the injury report.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 03:12:00 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) and Tarik Black (ankle) both feel "great" and may play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

Both guys sound closer to 'probable' tonight, but we'll have confirmation closer to tip-off.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 08:54:00 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

The oft-injured guard has been out since Dec. 5, but he wasn't in the rotation at times once the Lakers were healthy. In the last three with D'Angelo Russell back, Russell has locked up the starting point guard minutes with Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson securing most of the backup guard minutes, so Calderon isn't really needed anyway.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 03:42:00 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) was doing some pre-game work with assistant coaches on Friday.

Hey, at least it's progress. Calderon is still expected to be out for the rest of December. He may not even be in the rotation upon his return.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 05:10:00 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) will not play Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

Calderon was hit with a 2-4 week timetable on Dec. 5, and given that he tends to be a slow healer, there's no reason to expect him back any time soon. He belongs on the waiver wire everywhere.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:52:00 PM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Nets but could return to practice on Thursday.

He was given a 2-4 week timetable on Dec. 5, so he will be way ahead of schedule if he practices Thursday. However, he may not be in the rotation when he returns with D'Angelo Russell back from his knee injury. Leave Calderon on the wire.
