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.”
