Career: Alicante (Spain-LEB, 1999-2000), Alicante (Spain-ACB, 2000-01), Fuenlabrada (Spain-ACB, 2001-02), Vitoria (Spain-ACB, 2002-05), Toronto Raptors (NBA, 2005-06).

Calderon is ready to win after a losing rookie season in the NBA, where he overcame injury problems to earn some valuable playing time with the Toronto Raptors. He was used to play for winning teams such as Spanish powerhouse Tau Ceramica and his National Team. But the playmaker arrives to Japan hungry for success. He will likely be the starting point guard for the team due to his amazing improvement over the last few years.

Right now, still at 24, Calderon is a heck of a player: a fantastic athlete who is always there on defense and who can out-play any opponent at the other end with his outstanding 1-on-1 and unstoppable penetration skills. He likes to play a high-tempo game and can score when needed, even though he isn't the most reliable shooter.
