There’s time for the Clippers bench to get in sync. Counting Sunday’s 104-90 loss to Miami, the team has 44 games remaining before they really start counting. Still, a couple of key parts thought they’d have it figured out by now. “Yeah, I’m surprised,” Jamal Crawford said. “It’s just a little frustrating. We’ve shown that we can have those streaks where everything is clicking, we know what we’re going to do and things work for us. “More times then not, it’s gone the other way.” Orange County Register

The Clippers continue to shop for a starting small forward, but have told at least one inquiring team that they do not intend to move valuable sixth man Jamal Crawford in the process, sources say. The Clippers have one of the least productive benches in the league as it is, and that problem would become even more pronounced if they moved Crawford. Coach and president Doc Rivers has few trade assets to work with, and the Clippers are hard-capped and thus don't have much flexibility to take on salary. CBSSports.com

Jamal Crawford hears the chatter. While some athletes say they tune out trade rumors or speculation, particularly when it involves themselves, Crawford hears it but doesn’t stress about it. “I’m done worrying,” said Crawford, who’s on his sixth different team in 14-plus NBA seasons. “I’ve proven myself, honestly, over the course of time…Me personally, I’m fine. I can play basketball anywhere, so I’m not worried about it.” NBA.com

If the Clippers make a trade or bring in a free agent such as Ray Allen, Crawford said he’d understand and he’d welcome the addition. That could mean fewer minutes for him. It could even mean he gets dealt. But he’s not sweating it. “I’ve been in trade rumors ever since I’ve been here, which is the weirdest thing,” Crawford said. “But that’s part of the business, honestly. I can play wherever. I can play here, I would love to play here. But if not, if something happens, you move on and do what you’ve got to do.” NBA.com

If it’s up to him, though, he’s happy where he is and would prefer to stay with the Clippers. “I love it here,” Crawford said. “I signed to come here. My family’s very comfortable here. It’s weird because most people, you think L.A., they think bright lights. I’m not here for commercials or going out. I enjoy my teammates, I enjoy the coaching staff, I enjoy the fans and the organization, but I do understand it’s a business. If something were to happen, no hard feelings and you move on.” NBA.com

Doc Rivers on Friday told Rowan Kavner, who writes for the Clippers’ website, that he is not concerned about sixth-man Jamal Crawford’s inflamed bursa sac in his right (shooting) elbow. Crawford apparently banged the elbow during Wednesday’s victory at Indiana. “It’s just a bursa sac,” said Rivers, whose team plays Friday at 4 p.m. at Washington (on Prime Ticket). “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. It can get bad, those things, but I don’t think it’s an issue right now.” Los Angeles Daily News
