Calderon cuts deal with Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers signed free-agent guard Jose Calderon to a one-year contract on Monday.
The 35-year-old Calderon, who is entering his 13th season in the NBA, will back up All-Star Kyrie Irving. Cleveland never found a good solution at that position last season after Matthew Dellavedova left as a free agent. Rookie Kay Felder wasn’t ready to make a contribution, and veteran Deron Williams never found his groove, struggling in the Finals against Golden State.
Calderon split last season between the Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta, averaging 3.4 points and 2.1 assists in 41 games. He appeared in six playoff games with the Hawks.
