    At least we got 2 future second round picks out of this. Expiring contract and he cant be any worse than Marcelo Huertas.

    The Chicago Bulls traded Jose Calderon to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, sources told The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Lakers will take on the veteran's $7.7 million in their salary cap for next season, according to Mike Bresnahan of the TWC SportsNet.
