The Cavaliers on Friday announced the hiring of Jose Calderon as a special advisor to the front office.

Calderon played 14 seasons in the NBA, including eight with the Toronto Raptors and one (2017-18) with the Cavs before retiring a year later. A native of Spain, Calderon also played six seasons in the Spanish professional leagues before joining the NBA.

He most recently served as the special assistant to the executive director with the National Basketball Players Association, where he worked closely with executive director Michele Roberts. In his role with the Cavs, according to a release, Calderon will assist the front office both on and off the court in a variety of engagements.

“We are thrilled to add someone of Jose Calderon’s background and experience to our front office,” Cavs General Manager Koby Altman in a statement. “His accomplishments as a basketball player and familiarity with our organization will be invaluable. We look forward to his insights and perspective on how we can continue moving this team forward and enhancing our efforts towards sustainable and long-term success here in Cleveland.”
