Jose Calderon is ‘expected’ to sign with the Warriors in free agency once the Lakers buy him out

Jose Calderon is ‘expected’ to sign with the Warriors in free agency once the Lakers buy him out

It sounds like the veteran will go from the lottery to ring chasing. The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly talking about buying out little-used reserve Jose Calderon. It sounds like that is pretty much a done deal, because Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News reports that the “Warriors are expected to sign Jose Calderon once he works out a buyout with the Lakers.” Calderon has by all accounts been a solid mentor for the younger Lakers, and has never groused about his playing time coming and going based on injuries elsewhere in the rotation. Calderon is averaging career-lows in...

Quick Recap: Splash Brothers lead Warriors to 112-95 win over Nets, clinch playoff berth

With Kevin Durant out, the Splash Brothers reigned supreme and helped lead the Warriors to their 5th consecutive playoff appearance. In a more competitive game than I think anyone was expecting, the Golden State Warriors ultimately slammed the door on the Brooklyn Nets, winning 112-95. This ensured that they will see the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season, becoming the fastest team in NBA history to do so. Your favorite team hasn't clinched a playoff spot yet?

Lonzo Ball’s father says his son ‘will only play for the Lakers’

Lonzo Ball’s father says his son ‘will only play for the Lakers’

He also may not totally know how the draft works. With rumors of Indiana Pacers star Paul George wanting to return to play for his hometown Los Angeles Lakers circulating in recent days, it’s worth wondering just how much L.A. natives and their families want them to end up on the Lakers in general. In the case of UCLA freshman sensation Lonzo Ball, the answer might be a lot, at least if you listen to his father. "My son will only play for the Lakers,” LaVar Ball said during an appearance on The Kevin and Mike Show, a local Arizona sports radio show. The context of Ball’s comments is...

Hornets 99 - Kings 85: Blowout at Home

Sacramento falls back to earth against the Hornets. Walking into the game this afternoon, the Charlotte Hornets had lost five games in a row and twelve of the past thirteen, but Steve Clifford’s team took advantage of Sacramento’s lack of experience and chemistry on their way to a blowout that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated. Ben McLemore led the Kings in scoring with 18 points while Frank Kaminsky put in 23 of his own and pulled down 13 rebounds. The game started out poorly for the hometown team as the Hornets ran out to a 12-0 lead behind a balanced scoring attack...

Lakers reportedly talking buyout with Jose Calderon; Houston, Golden State interested

This was to be expected. In a move that was to be expected once the trade deadline came and went with Jose Calderon still on the Los Angeles Lakers, ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting the two sides are discussing a buyout. Calderon was acquired as a veteran to help mentor the young Lakers and also as a means to land a couple extra second rounders from the Chicago Bulls, who were looking to shed salary. He’s since fallen out of the rotation, though has remained very professional throughout the season, as ESPN’s John Ireland mentioned on the “Locked on Lakers” podcast January 10. To...

Fresh off of their first post All-Star Break win, the Kings don’t have long to celebrate: Charlotte is in town, and looking to quiet the buzz on an upstart Sacramento squad. After what must have been the most cathartic win in Kings franchise history, Thursday night’s victory against the Denver Nuggets rang in the new era in Kings basketball in style; a free flowing event, in which the Kings found ways to out score a team full of scores and out rebound a much better rebounding team than Sacramento.

San Antonio at Los Angeles Clippers, Final Score: Spurs win 105-97

The Spurs continued the RRT with a big win. San Antonio was able to get a huge win on the road, making the season series 1-2 against the Clippers. Pau Gasol played his first game since January 18, and Chris Paul started in his first since January 16. The Spurs took control with an 11-0 run, but also had 8 turnovers in the quarter, which could have really hurt if LA could take advantage, instead, they scored 0 points off them. Gasol looked fresh in his first game in a month with great defense and a nice stop-and-pop 3. Both teams struggled in the first and it was 18-13 after 1 The Clippers...

NBA players watch for Woj bombs: They’re just like us! One minute. A solitary minute was all that elapsed between Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical’s first tweet about the Los Angeles Lakers acquiring Tyler Ennis from the Houston Rockets and his second one, revealing that they had sent Marcelo Huertas back in exchange. That may not seem like much time for NBA fans just sitting on Twitter waiting for Woj bombs to drop, but for NBA players trying to figure out what city they’ll be playing in the rest of the year, it probably feels like an eternity.
