The Heat is next-to-last in the league in points per game (92.6, ahead of only Philadelphia) but continues to pass on several available proven scorers who are interested in signing here, starting with veteran 6-4 guard Jordan Crawford, who’s back from China. The Heat has stayed in occasional contact with Crawford’s camp over the past several months but never summoned him for a workout in the past year. Crawford (12.2 career scoring average) would be a clear upgrade, but inside the Heat, there was concern that several teams have parted with him. But he is said to have matured. Miami Herald

“During the offseason I didn’t think I’d sign in China. I thought I would get a good deal in the NBA, but I was overlooked,” Crawford told Basketball Insiders from his three-story mansion in Urumqi, the largest city in China’s western interior. Basketball Insiders

Q: Which NBA teams offered deals? Jordan Crawford: “Teams wanted to wait till training camp. There were talks of one-season veteran minimum deals. My history with the Washington Wizards concerned a lot of teams. I was traded to D.C. during my rookie season and I was very passionate about playing professional basketball. I worked very hard to show everyone from the coaches to the players to fans that I wanted to win and I could help our team win even when other players were injured or didn’t believe they could win. Some of the decisions that were made and how I expressed my frustration with those decisions led to a big misunderstanding in D.C. and I ended up with a bad reputation, but I’m working to change that.” Basketball Insiders

Q: Which NBA organization had serious interest in you? Jordan Crawford: “The Sacramento Kings wanted me, but I wasn’t comfortable accepting the backup role there. I’m a hard worker who loves the game and I felt I had something more to offer than what they were looking for from me at the time.” Basketball Insiders
