According to the Chicago Tribune, Jose Calderon is likely the penciled-in starter for the Bulls next season.
Calderon only has one year left on his deal and didn't play well for the Knicks last season, and there's also a good possibility that the Bulls add another point guard in free agency. If not, Calderon will battle Jerian Grant for the starting job, while Spencer Dinwiddie could be in the mix as well. The PG position in Chicago doesn't look very promising for fantasy purposes.

Jose Calderon has been traded to the Bulls as part of Wednesday's blockbuster deal with the Knicks.

Jerian Grant is also headed to Chicago, where he and Calderon will be battling for minutes with Spencer Dinwiddie. It's also likely that the Bulls will acquire another lead PG in the coming months, and none of these guys jump out as outstanding draft-day targets.
Jun 22 - 3:20 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek hinted the Knicks could use a younger point guard.

The Knicks were just 24th in pace last season and dead last in percentage of fast-break points, so a younger point guard would help push the tempo. Plus, the Knicks were 27th in assists per game. Jose Calderon's minutes will likely be dropping next season.
Jun 3 - 10:27 PM

Jose Calderon was enthusiastic when discussing the Knicks' next head coach Jeff Hornacek during a recent interview.

"I’m happy to have a coach," Calderon said. "[Hornacek's team] played really good in Phoenix. You know, really fun basketball. Hopefully, we can play that way and have a little fun out there." Calderon added that he doesn't believe he'll have any trouble fitting in with Hornacek's uptempo offense, although there are no guarantees that the 35-year-old remains on the Knicks' roster when the 2016-17 season begins. Calderon's numbers have been trending in the wrong direction for two straight seasons, so he won't be worth anything more than a late-round flier on draft day.

Jose Calderon (quad) will not play against the Pacers on Tuesday.

The Knicks were hoping Calderon might play again this season, but he'll now miss the regular season finale on Tuesday. Jerian Grant is likely to again start in Calderon's place and is an intriguing, low-dollar point guard play against the Pacers on Tuesday.
Apr 12 - 11:52 AM

Jose Calderon (quad) didn't play on Sunday, as expected.

Kurt Rambis suggested that Calderon could return this season but it's unclear why he'd bother, as New York is better served developing their young guys and there's just one game remaining. Leave Calderon where you found him -- on the waiver wire.
Apr 10 - 10:26 PM

Coach Kurt Rambis said there's a chance Jose Calderon (quad) can return this season.

So you're saying there's a chance? Calderon has not been practicing and there is no incentive to bring him back. For now, expect Jerian Grant to start the rest of the way as a possible low-end point guard in standard leagues.
Apr 6 - 5:53 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) did not practice on Tuesday.

Calderon did say that his quad is feeling better, although he would not commit to making it back to the court for New York's final four games of the year. With player development being a priority for the Knicks, it would be surprising for Calderon to return and thus take away minutes from Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway. There's not a league out there where Calderon should be owned.
Apr 5 - 5:25 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

He's currently without an official timetable to return and is still on crutches, so he may just sit out the final five games of the year for New York. Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant will benefit most in Calderon's absence, with Grant operating as New York's starting point guard. Calderon belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Apr 3 - 5:50 PM

Jose Calderon (right quad) is currently on crutches.

After the Knicks announced the veteran point guard would be out for "an extended time" on Friday, anyone still holding onto him should absolutely move on. Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway will be the prime beneficiaries with Grant sliding into Calderon's starting spot.

Apr 2 - 1:32 PM

Jose Calderon has a deep contusion of his right quad and he will be out for "an extended time," according to the Knicks.

Translation: Calderon is likely out for the season. The Knicks have nothing to play for and have been keeping Langston Galloway's minutes down, so it should be Jerian Grant getting most of the minutes and probably start, too. Calderon can be dropped everywhere.
Apr 1 - 5:32 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) is listed as doubtful for Friday against the Nets.

X-rays were negative on his bruised quad, but Calderon is likely going to miss time. Chances are Jerian Grant picks up the bulk of the playing time and would be worth a look in deep leagues. Langston Galloway could benefit, but the Knicks aren't likely to play him big minutes.
Apr 1 - 3:57 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) will not return on Wednesday.

He has a contused right quad and X-rays were negative. Calderon isn't exactly the fastest healer and being ruled out quickly suggests he'll miss time. The Knicks may be going with Jerian Grant here because they can avoid playing Langston Galloway a bonus for minutes played this year. Both Grant and Galloway aren't playing well enough to add. Calderon checked out with two points, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 10 minutes.
Mar 30 - 9:49 PM

The Knicks are considering moving on from Jose Calderon after the 2015-16 season.

The Knicks are reportedly considering using the stretch provision on Calderon after the season, but head coach Kurt Rambis said the team will continue with the same starting lineup that includes Calderon. The 34-year-old is averaging 8.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers over his last five games and is worth using in standard fantasy leagues as long as he's starting.
Mar 29 - 9:31 AM

Jose Calderon scored six points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

His playing dropped in this game and that might continue. If the Pacers win on Sunday, the Knicks will be officially eliminated from the postseason. Calderon will be a risky player to trust in a weekly league.
