Kings free agency rumors: Jose Calderon visiting Sacramento

New, comments

The Spanish point guard is one of the best playmakers in the game.


Jose Calderon, a soon-to-be 32-year-old point guard from Spain, will meet with Kings management in Sacramento on Tuesday, reports Jorge Sierra of

Calderon spent seven full seasons with the Raptors before being dealt to the Pistons in the Rudy Gay deal at the February trade deadline. The Pistons have reportedly been interested in bringing him back; he started 28 games for Detroit over the back half of last season.

Calderon's major skill is playmaking. For his career he averages nine assists per 36 minutes, has a 4.2:1 assist-to-turnover ratio and has an assist rate of nearly 40 percent. While he's a 40 percent career three-point shooter, he's not too much of a scorer. He is a pretty disastrous defender, and again, will turn 32 in September.
