NBA Free Agency 2014: Jordan Crawford drawing interest from several teams


According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, free agent shooting guard Jordan Crawford is drawing interest from several teams around the league including the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Last season was a tale of two teams for the four year guard.

With the Boston Celtics, head coach Brad Stevens squeezed the best NBA basketball out of Crawford. Once noted as a selfish guard, Crawford stepped into the role of primary playmaker as Rajon Rondo continued to recover from a torn ACL suffered during the 2012-13 season. And with Crawford playing far above his market level, the Celtics decided to ship him out in a trade to the Golden State Warriors.

And as many expected, Crawford resorted back into the point guard who struggled mightily through his career in regards of knowing when to create and when to shoot. More than often, Crawford dialed up the shooting. With his play sliding, the Warriors pushed Crawford down the depth chart with the acquisition of Steve Blake.

Now, Crawford may be looking at his fifth team in five years as his time with the Warriors seems to be up after agreeing to a deal with former Brooklyn Nets guard Shaun Livingston.

Teams know what they’re going to get with Crawford: a high value, inefficient shooter. With free agency stalled out due to LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony’s indecision, Crawford may not come to an agreement with a team until those two make a move.

    For what a guy you can use in a trade later on. Crafowd has proven one thing in career that he’s bench reliever at best and will never live up to the athleticism that he posses.

    This would be a pure salary move. Get it done, I don’t really care what the Dubs get in return, we need the cap space. The Nets might be interesting b/c they need help in the backcourt and at the 4 ositin as well. Maybe they’d take Mo Speight as well because they’re going to lose Andray Blatche and Speights is under contract and making lot less than Blache will make.
