There is no trade imminent regarding Jose Calderon.
The trade rumors started popping up with Calderon after he responded to some trade talk on Twitter. Calderon has one of the better contracts to trade on the team and the Knicks may want to give Jerian Grant more run. For now, Grant is worth a look late in standard drafts while Calderon is a low-upside guy in the late rounds, too. Aug 19 - 7:18 PM

Jose Calderon implied that the Clippers and Timberwolves are interested in acquiring his services.

In response to a tweet from a fan saying: "Wake me up when Wolves & Clippers will be intersted in @JmCalderon3," Calderon Retweeted "Hey!!! Wake up!!!!!!!" It's unclear if Calderon is simply tired of hearing his name pop up in the rumor mill and this was just a sarcastic response, or if he actually knows something. The Clippers are reportedly trying to deal Jamal Crawford, while the Wolves have been rumored to be ready to move on from Ricky Rubio. If either of those players were sent to New York, it's likely Calderon's salary would be used to make the numbers work, so it'll be interesting to see if this turns into anything.

Knicks president Phil Jackson projects Jose Calderon to play 26-28 minutes per game.

The 33-year-old was limited to 42 games last season, but Jackson is hoping he can come in and fill a rotational this year. "I project Jose as playing 26-28 minutes per game, but we will have to provide him with a bit more defensive support," Jackson said. "He's under contract and I'm happy to have him back." While Calderon could end up having fantasy value in standard leagues, he'll need to win the Knicks starting point guard job first and is more of a late-round flier for now.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) said he is looking forward to having a healthy 2015-16 season.

After injuries limited Calderon to 42 games last season, the 33-year-old is hoping a return to health can help him turn things around this year. "I just want to be myself, just be healthy and play basketball. I think being healthy can change everything," Calderon said. "I think last year with all the different [lineups], injuries, myself included, I couldn’t get into a rhythm." Calderon could end up being worth a roster sport in standard fantasy leagues if he's able to win the starting point guard job in New York, but he's not much more than a late-round flier at this point.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) said he will be 100 percent to start training camp.

He's been upbeat for months, dating back to April when he said he's confident he'll have a bounce-back 2015-16. Calderon's Achilles bothered him for most of 2014-15, so there's a chance it becomes an issue. If he needs to miss time, rookie Jerian Grant could get more run. Although, Grant wasn't very impressive at Summer League.

Jose Calderon said that he couldn't get into a rhythm last season, and that all the Knicks injuries caused the team to be out of sync.

Calderon went on to say that with Carmelo Anthony healthy he expects the Knicks to be competitive, and play with a team first mentality. Calderon sure couldn't find his rhythm last season, shooting a career-low 41.5 percent from the field to go with unimpressive averages of 9.1 points, 4.7 assists and 1.4 three-pointers in addition to only making it through 42 games. He's not someone to target in standard leagues in next year's drafts.

Jose Calderon confirmed that he will not play at Eurobasket with the Spanish National Team this summer.

"I am not retiring from the Spanish National Team," Calderon told Marca (Spanish newspaper). "I still want to play basketball and now I have to fully recover from my injuries." Calderon is still recovering from an Achilles injury, so this isn't a surprise. The good news is that he should be ready to go for training camp, but he will have his work cut out for him after a thoroughly disappointing 2014-15 campaign. Calderon's fantasy value will hinge on what the Knicks do via free agency and the draft, but he won't be a reliable target in standard leagues.

Jose Calderon is confident he'll have a bounce-back 2015-16 season, according to Knicks president Phil Jackson.

The 33-year-old was limited to just 42 games during the 2014-15 season, but told Jackson he's ready for a better 2015-16. "Jose came in confident in his exit meetings about having a much better season next year," Jackson said. "He was bothered from Day 1 by an Achilles situation that continued to bother him to the point that he had to sit it out. So we have that situation to deal with." The Knicks are in the market for a point guard who can get to the basket, so there's a good chance Calderon won't be starting for the Knicks and can thus be largely ignored in fantasy drafts.

Knicks president Phil Jackson said that Jose Calderon was bothered by his Achilles for the entire 2014-15 season.

Jackson also added that he's confident Calderon will bounce back in 2015-16, but fantasy owners can't put too much stock in the 33-year-old at this point. Calderon disappointed even when he did play in 2014-15 with averages of 9.1 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers in 42 games and he'll have to compete with Langton Galloway, Shane Larkin, and a potential free agent or draft pick next season, so he shouldn't be much more than a late-round flier in 2015-16 fantasy drafts.
Apr 21 - 12:12 PM

Jose Calderon admitted that he is likely done for the season due to his ailing Achilles.

Calderon is expected to be in a walking boot for at least another week, and with the season drawing to a close, there is no reason for the veteran point guard to risk his health. "To play again, I don’t think it’s a good chance,’’ Calderon said. "It’s a totally different picture now.’’ Calderon can be dropped just about everywhere, and it will be up to Langston Galloway and Shane Larkin to handle most of the backcourt responsibilities for the remainder of the season.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will be in a walking boot for 10-days.

While Jose would not rule out the possibility of him making a return this season, he admitted that he doesn't like his chances. There's really no reason for Calderon to risk a setback playing for the worst team in basketball, so we don't expect to see him back on the floor this season. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 7:35 PM

Jose Calderon had minor Achilles surgery and will likely miss the rest of the regular season.

He had platelet rich plasma treatment and will take the offseason to recover. Calderon has been out since Feb. 25 due to a strain in his Achilles and should be fine for next season. The Knicks have his contract for the next two seasons at around $7.5 million per season.
Mar 23 - 6:36 PM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) has still not been able to participate in any on-court work, but head coach Derek Fisher remains hopeful that he'll be able to return at some point this season.

There's absolutely no reason Calderon should risk a more serious injury to play for a team that would like to lose, and given the fact he wasn't very effective while he was on the court this season, Calderon should remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Alexey Shved, Shane Larkin, and Langston Galloway will continue to see some increased opportunity with Calderon on the shelf, and Shved is the guy to own out of the three.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday and said he still hopes to return this season.

Calderon's left Achilles injury has caused him to miss 10 straight games and the Knicks have little incentive to deploy him as they drift toward the draft lottery. He admitted that he won't return "if there's a risk" and all signs point to Calderon being done for the season, which makes Alexey Shved an even safer option with four games left on the schedule this week.
Mar 17 - 9:26 AM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play vs. the Suns on Sunday, and head coach Derek Fisher said that he will be reevaluated on Monday.

"He’s doing a little more each day, but I think he’s still a ways away," Fisher said. "Once we get back [to New York], he’ll be evaluated." It certainly doesn't sound like he will return anytime soon, and coach Fisher even left open the possibility that Calderon could be done for the season despite his insistence to play. Regardless, we should know more on Monday, so owners might as well wait and see what the latest is on his status before making any roster decisions.
