As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers are hiring former Spanish point guard Jose Calderon to a front office role.

Position: PG
Age: 40
Height: 191 cm
Weight: 96 kg
Birth place: Badajoz, Spain

Calderon retired from basketball in 2019 after playing his last NBA season with the Detroit Pistons and since then he has been working for the NBPA, the NBA players' association. 

This will be a return to Cleveland for Calderon, who played for the Cavs in the 2017-2018 season, reaching the NBA Finals. 

With the Spanish national team, Calderon won three Olympic medals, one World Cup, and four Eurobasket medals, including a gold one in 2011. 

It's still unclear which type of role Calderon will have but with the recent contract extension signed by GM Koby Altman and the good performances that the team is having, it looks like there's room to grow in Cleveland.
