Calderon cuts deal with Cavs

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

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.
