The Los Angeles Clippers are after several big name free agents, including Miami Heat forward LeBron James and New York Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony.
They are also looking at the next tier of free agents like Washington Wizards’ swingman Trevor Ariza, Cleveland Cavaliers’ big man Spencer Hawes, Memphis Grizzlies’ big man Ed Davis and Brooklyn Nets’ swingman Paul Pierce, among many others.
As the Clippers have been pursuing free agents, one of their own isn’t very happy. Clippers’ guard Jamal Crawford has been the subject of several trade rumors over the last and not only have those reports likely bothered him, but he is also looking for a contract extension.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Crawford’s agent wants an extension, whether it is with the Clippers or another team.
As the Los Angeles Clippers propose guard Jamal Crawford in possible trade scenarios, the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year has a message for the Clippers and potential future teams: Wherever Crawford’s playing, he wants a contract extension next summer.
“Our intention is to get an extension with the Clippers or anywhere else that he may be traded based on the fact that he’s undervalued for the production he’s providing,” his agent Andy Miller told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday night.
Crawford is owed $11 million over the next two seasons with the second year being a club option. Last season, Crawford averaged 18.6 points, 3.2 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 41.6% from field, 36.1% from beyond the arc and 86.6% from the free throw line.
