ALBA Berlin addressed the injury problems in its backcourt by signing veteran guard Jordan Crawford to a one-month contract. Crawford (1.98 meters, 30 years old) last played for New Orleans of the NBA. He spent parts of six seasons in the NBA with Atlanta, Washington, Boston, Golden State and New Orleans and averaged 12.2 points and 3.1 assists in 281 games. He has also played for Xinjiang and Tianjin in China. “Because of our many injured players, our healthy players have had to do play more,” ALBA sports director Himar Ojeda said. “To relieve this difficult situation, we have signed Jordan Crawford. He is very talented and experienced and we expect him to quickly find his rhythm and help us in the upcoming games. We are working hard on his eligibility and hope he can play against Limoges on Wednesday. “

Alex Kennedy: Have you had any conversations with NBA teams [since being waived by New Orleans]? Jordan Crawford: Yeah, I actually worked out for two playoff teams recently, so I’ve been in contact. After going to them and the feedback from them was that I’m ready and I’m in shape. I’m a veteran. Because I’ve been showing how humbled I’ve been, I’ve been going to the [G League] and I did Summer League before, I don’t want people to think that I just, that I have to prove myself every time to be on a roster. I carry myself as a professional.

How can a guy that put up 41 points in an NBA game not have one of the 450 jobs in the NBA? Crawford, 27, says he doesn’t know. “Y’ll gonna have to answer that one,” Crawford said with a smile today at the Pistons practice facility. “I don’t know, but I … just went and played in China. I had fun over there, different experience, just learning the game from over there. “It was fun, but (as far as the 40 points I scored) goes, I don’t know.”

Storyline: Karl-Anthony Towns Injury
Being unable to play has troubled Towns, coach Ryan Saunders said. “People asked me if he cared about his [consecutive games] streak,” Saunders said. “He hasn’t and didn’t mention one thing along those lines. It was all about being there for his teammates and contributing. He even had somebody run out and make sure he could get a sport coat so he was dressed properly on the bench so he could be there with his teammates. That says a lot about Karl.”
