Lakers Reportedly Agree to Contract Buyout with Jose Calderon

CSN Bay Area staff Warriors to release Briante Weber will sign another guard

Calderon is expected to be bought out by the Lakers and following last night's playoff-clinching win against the Nets, Golden State let go of guard Briante Weber, likely to open up a roster spot for Calderon.

With so many young point guards on the roster and little incentive to play veterans due to a 19-41 record and the fact that their first-round pick is top-three protected, the Lakers no longer have a need for Calderon. Calderon is hoping to get things done by March 1, the last day where players can be released and retain playoff eligibility.

It is also worth noting that a player can be signed to two 10-day contracts before a franchise must make the decision whether or not to sign him for the remainder of the season.

Calderon was putting up a career-low 3.3 points per game during his stint with the Purple and Gold, but he only averaged 12.2 minutes per game.

Deron Williams was released by the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday, cleared waivers on Saturday and quickly came to terms on a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers that, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin, will be made official Monday.

Aside from Calderon, there is the curious case of Andrew Bogut. Is Calderon going to move the needle for the Warriors? However, one thing that Calderon offers that Livingston doesn't is outside shooting.
