Jose Calderon-G - Raptors Jul. 12 - 12:43 pm et
The Bobcats are close to sending Boris Diaw and "possibly" Tyson Chandler to the Raptors in a three-way deal that includes the Suns. Charlotte would acquire point guard Jose Calderon and at least one other player.
As expected, we're seeing a cascade of player movement following LeBron and co.'s decision to join the Heat. Calderon would certainly fill the Bobcats' void at PG, and is a far better pure PG than ex-Bobcat Raymond Felton. Of course, if this deal goes through as stated it will leave Charlotte thin inside, relying on Tyrus Thomas and a platoon of mediocre big men.

The deal is currently on hold though as Jordan and the Bobcats have some reservations on the deal.
My reason for posting this is I see a lot of people not having faith in Felton. I personally like Felton for years now. But do you guys think Calderon would of been a better fit? I could of seen Calderon flourishing in our system.
Again I'm happy with the Felton move, but do you guys think we should of/could of waited on a PG? It is one of the most important, if not the most important positions in D'Antoni's system.
