Breaking: Cavs agree to terms with guard Jose Calderon

Just one day into this year’s free agency, the defending Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to make a move.

According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes and Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Cavaliers and point guard José Calderón have agreed to a one-year veteran’s minimum deal, which will be worth roughly $2.3 million.

Calderón, a 35-year-old three-time Olympic medalist with his native Spanish national team (two silver, one bronze), split last season’s NBA campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks, where he averaged 3.4 points on 41% shooting from the field and 2.1 assists in 13.4 minutes per game.

Even though the Cavs are without an official general manager due to David Griffin’s departure last month, acting GM Koby Altman and team owner Dan Gilbert likely felt the need to grab a reserve point guard in free agency due to the uncertainty behind Deron Williams‘ future with the team.
