The New York Knicks have been linked to trade moves for two experienced point guards today in the form of Jamal Crawford and Ricky Rubio, of the Clippers and Timberwolves respectively.
Should interest in either player pan out it would make current roster member, Jose Calderon, very expendable.
And, in the context of the current situation, the actions of the Spaniard on social media today suggest that he knows he is on the way out, hinting that Los Angeles or Minnesota could be his landing spot.

Referencing a tweet sent from one Knicks fan asking to be woken up when either the Clippers or T'Wolves showed interest in the under-performing Calderon, the PG himself made the interesting move of alerting said fan soon after:
In the know?
Of course, the tweet may just be Jose Calderon reacting with frustration at the news the Knicks are planning on upgrading at the point guard position.
Then again, with New York needing to cobble together a trade package (and find the salary space) to bring in either Crawford or Rubio, Calderon may know that he will be used as a makeweight in any trade moving forward.
Another fact that looks to seal Calderon's fate should the Knicks be serious about the rumored traded? The fact that the Spanish veteran is set to earn over $7 million next season, a salary that the franchise would have to shift if they want to make room for new arrivals.
