Detroit Pistons Jose Calderon Says Money Not Only Free Agent Factor

To say Jose Calderon has done pretty well for himself in the NBA would be an understatement.

The Detroit Pistons point guard is set to enter free agency this Summer, this after signing a 5 year, $45 million dollar contract with is former team, the Toronto Raptors. Calderon, who made over $11 million dollars this past year is excited to test free agency but told Marca.com that he will consider all aspects of a said contract offer.

Per Keith Langlois:

Jose Calderon tells http://marca.com  $ won’t be only FA factor: “I will consider every aspect in order to make a decision.”

I’m guessing in addition to money, Calderon will want to consider playing time and overall team ability before making his choice. The Spaniard point was less than thrilled splitting time in Toronto and I’m pretty sure, assuming he’ll have his pick of suitors, he’ll want to find a spot where he doesn’t have a ton of competition for minutes……in addition to getting paid well.

With a limited market for point guards, Calderon shouldn’t find much issue in doing so.
