Calderon, an eight year NBA veteran has expressed that there will be far greater factors than money in his free agent decision, citing fit as one of his biggest needs. Can the Kings provide that? We’re soon to find out as Hoopshype is reporting Calderon and the Kings will meet today:
Free agent point guard Jose Manuel Calderon will meet with the Kings today in Sacramento, agent Mark Bartelstein told HoopsHype.
Owner Vivek Ranadive, general manager Pete D’Alessandro, head coach Mike Malone and Chris Mullin will be at the meeting with the Spanish guard, who returned to the United States yesterday. His stay in the country will be short as Calderon will be back in Spain in just a couple of days.
While at times downright dazzling with the ball in his hands, Calderon is also known for his non-existent defense which probably wouldn’t fit into the scheme of Michael Malone, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to meet with Calderon and explore all avenues.
