Calderon: I Was Shocked to be Traded to Knicks

It was only when he pulled into his driveway that (Jose) Calderon learned what everyone else already knew: The Dallas Mavericks had traded him to the Knicks as part of a multiplayer deal that would reshape both rosters for seasons to come. There had been no warning for Calderon, no indication that he might be on the move. It all came as something of a shock, he said.

“I turned to my wife and said, ‘Look what they’re saying!’ ” Calderon recalled. “When you’re with a team and you’re comfortable there, everything seems O.K. You play a lot of minutes. You make the playoffs. You don’t miss practice — all of that stuff. So when you leave for the summer, you’re like, ‘See you next year!’ You expect maybe some changes, but nothing involving you.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
