Jamal Crawford declined a $4.5 million player option with the Timberwolves for next season, thinking that as a free agent he could get into a situation that was a better fit, and where he could get more minutes than the 20 he got each game last season. As we get into the middle of August, Crawford is still looking for a new home. There were rumors about him signing a minimum deal with the Warriors and stepping into the Nick Young role, but that never materialized. Other rumors have been floated, but nothing seemed real. Crawford is making his pitch, and on Brandon Robinson’s Scoop B Radio he praised the Sixers and his potential fit there.
Storyline: Jamal Crawford Free Agency
Jamal Crawford: “I would be honored to play there, but things obviously have to take its course and I kind of got to sit back, but who wouldn’t want to play there? I like their city. I like how into it they are about basketball. I like their knowledge of basketball, how passionate they are. I’ve always loved coach Brett Brown. I’ve been on record. I’ve been a fan of his for years. He just needed talent, and now he has that. He added Ben Simmons, I love his game. I love Jojo [Joel Embiid]. They’re both among my favorite players in the league to watch. Markelle [Fultz] is like a little brother to me. Obviously, he went to the University of Washington, and we talk every other day. JJ Redick is like a brother to me, we’ve been through wars together, so there’s so many things to love about Philadelphia for sure.”
Crawford’s story is one of local legend. A wiry, 6-foot-5 guard with a mesmerizing handle, an electric scoring ability and prophetic passing skills, he led Rainier Beach High School to a state championship in 1998, then carried his talents to the University of Michigan for one season, then proceeded to become an NBA lottery pick, three-time Sixth Man of the Year and the 2018 Teammate of the Year. At age 38, he’s still a coveted free agent. Known throughout his 18-year NBA career for his scoring, Crawford’s legacy in Seattle is defined by his assists in the city’s basketball community.
