Handshake-gate:

Jose Calderon: Agrees To Terms With Mavs

Rotowire.com
Update: Calderon agreed to a four-year, $29 million contract with the Mavericks on Friday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Recommendation: After shooting a career-high 52.7 percent from the field in 2011-12, Calderon's shooting percentage came back down to earth last season, but he's still an adequate scorer and distributor who's capable of chipping in close to 30 minutes per night. It looks like he'll step into a starting role in Dallas, which will allow Shane Larkin to develop with the second unit for the time being.
