The part of a complex Raptors deal that would have sent Jose Calderon
and Reggie Evans to Charlotte is dead, killed by Bobcats owner Michael
Jordan, according to league sources.
The teams had signed off on the transaction that would have shipped
Boris Diaw and Tyson Chandler to Toronto early Monday afternoon – with
Chandler being told he was to become a Raptor – before it died later in
the day. The other part of the transaction – Hedo Turkoglu from
Toronto to Phoenix for Leandro Barbosa – is still a go and could be
finished as early as today.
