CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers are bringing back former guard José Calderón as a special adviser to their front office.
Calderón played 14 seasons in the NBA, spending the 2017-18 season in Cleveland as the Cavs made their fourth straight trip to the Finals. The 40-year-old was with the Detroit Pistons in 2018-19.
After his retirement, he worked with the National Basketball Players Association as an assistant to NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts and an executive team on union strategy and issues relevant to current players.
With the Cavs, Calderón will assist Koby Altman, the team’s new director of basketball operations.
