Dwyane Wade would love to see Jamal Crawford play for Golden State next season

Dwyane Wade, Jamal Crawford

Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade would love to see Jamal Crawford play for the Golden State Warriors this season.

Crawford is still on the open market. He played with the Phoenix Suns last season.

Dwyane Wade believes the Warriors could use Crawford’s scoring ability since Kevin Durant is gone and Klay Thompson will miss a big chunk of the season recovering from his ACL tear:

“I would love to see him on a team like Golden State,” Wade told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of Heavy. “Just because he can rock out man he’s exciting. You get somebody that can come off the bench and put up 20 like there’s nothing.

“It would be good, obviously without Klay getting injured and losing Kevin Durant. Having a scoring punch come off the bench would be good for them.”

Jamal Crawford averaged 7.9 points, 1.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 64 games with the 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. He played for the Warriors before and would fit in well with their uptempo offense.

So far, though, there haven’t been any reports linking Crawford to Golden State.
