Jamal Crawford thinks he’ll get signed this season, but doesn’t ‘know when’
Veteran shooting guard Jamal Crawford thinks he’ll get signed at some point this season.
However, Crawford admits he doesn’t know when that time will come.
“I honestly don’t think it’s anything personal,” Crawford said of the fact that he remains unsigned, via Marc Stein of The New York Times. “Obviously I can still play. In my heart of hearts, I feel like it’ll happen. I just don’t know when.”
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.
On April 9 against the Dallas Mavericks, Crawford made NBA history by scoring 51 points. He became the oldest player in league history to score 50-plus points in a game. Crawford also became the first player ever to score that many points off the bench.
Crawford has career averages of 14.6 points in 1,326 NBA games. He’s won the Sixth Man of the Year award three times. Jamal can still get buckets in bunches and is a great veteran to have in a locker room.
After Carmelo Anthony got picked up by the Portland Trail Blazers, Jamal Crawford, J.R. Smith and Joakim Noah are the notable players who are still on the open market.
