Ex-Cavaliers guard Jose Calderon’s Avon Lake home burglarized, police say

AVON LAKE, Ohio — Former Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Jose Calderon’s became the victim of a burglary while he was in his native Spain, according to Avon Lake police and the 36-year-old point guard.

Calderon, who signed with the Detroit Pistons following the Cavs’ loss in the 2018 NBA Finals, lived on Lake Road while he played for the Cavs.

Calderon lived at the home, but did not own it, according to the Lorain County Auditor’s website.

“It was nothing too bad,” Calderon said in a phone interview with cleveland.com. “Most of my stuff is here with me in Spain.”

The break-in happened sometime between July 21 and July 25, police reports say.

A neighbor checked on Calderon’s home on July 25 and reported that he noticed the garage door was open and that Calderon’s 2017 Jeep was missing. He also reported a side door was wide open, police reports say.

The burglar, who has not been arrested, rummaged through the home and stole

A Chanel watch, a Prada purse, an Xbox, an Apple iMac computer, Louis Vuitton shoes were stolen, according to police reports. The burglar also stole his 2017 Jeep Wrangler from the garage, police reports say.

Calderon played for the Cavaliers for one season and signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Pistons after the season, his 13th in the NBA.

“That’s the way it goes,” Calderon said. “There’s no hard feelings.”
