Anthony Davis calls Jamal Crawford a ‘relentless scorer,’ wishes him ‘nothing but the best’
Los Angeles Lakers superstar big man Anthony Davis is a big fan of veteran shooting guard Jamal Crawford.
Davis calls Crawford a “relentless scorer” and is hoping some team signs him before the 2019-20 season starts.
“Yeah, relentless scorer, man,” Davis told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of Heavy. “You can’t guard him. He’s able to do some special things on the floor. When he has the ball in his hands, all eyes are on him. I wish nothing but the best for him.”
Jamal Crawford averaged 7.9 points, 1.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 64 games with the Phoenix Suns last season while shooting 39.7 percent from the field, 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 84.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Crawford, 39, scored 51 points on April 9 against the Dallas Mavericks. One would guess there has to be some team in the league who will have interest in signing Crawford since he can score in bunches coming off the bench.
The Lakers haven’t been linked to Crawford. The franchise recently applied for a $1.75 million disabled player exception after losing DeMarcus Cousins to an ACL tear.
Could the Lakers use the services of Crawford? Sure. Will they have interest in signing him? Most likely not. The Lakers have enough guards on the roster: Danny Green, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Avery Bradley, Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook and Troy Daniels.
