The Pelicans are waiving Jordan Crawford.
This move is to open a spot for Jameer Nelson. Steez actually had a productive game on Friday with 13 points, one rebound, seven assists and three 3-pointers. He also had a whopping 15.2 points per game in April last year and he's probably responsible for some fantasy titles with his 41-point game in the 2013-14 season finale. Some team should sign him after he clears waivers. Oct 21 - 4:09 PM

Date:

Jordan Crawford scored 19 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The injury to Rajon Rondo should get Crawford in the rotation, but E'Twaun Moore is likely to start. Despite a really nice finish in April, Steez isn't really worth drafting in most leagues.
Oct 14 - 12:43 AM

Jordan Crawford scored 21 points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in a 123-101 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

In the last regular season game Steez played as a member of the Warriors, he put up a 41-point gem back in 2014. Crawford has been money in the bank for scoring with double-digit output in 15 of his 17 games as a Pelican, and he also has back-to-back 20-plus scoring NBA games for the first time since 2011. The Pelicans are likely going to shut some guys down, so it's not crazy to think Steez can flirt with 20 points per game in the final two. He won't be getting much else because his Steez works both ways.
Apr 9 - 1:24 AM

Jordan Crawford scored 20 points with one rebound, three assists and one steal in 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

He should get plenty of shots the rest of the way now that the Pelicans are going to limit their guys. Crawford won't do much outside of scoring, so he's more of a specialist. Revenge game against the Warriors on Saturday?
Apr 8 - 12:56 AM

Jordan Crawford posted 15 points with three assists and a steal over 24 minutes in Sunday's 117-110 loss against the Bulls.

Crawford continues to play well in a bench role in the Big Easy, posting double-digit point totals in eight straight and 13 of his 14 outings this season. He is still useful only for his points, as he doesn't really register much in the other scoring categories.
Apr 2 - 9:53 PM

Jordan Crawford scored 15 points with one rebound, four assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Whether you call him Steez or Instant Grits, Crawford has been getting it done lately. He's scored in double figures for six straight games with 2.3 treys per game in that span. He's still got some work to do to be anything more than a specialist, but give him a look if you need some scoring with a couple dimes thrown in there.
Mar 30 - 12:54 AM

Jordan Crawford scored 14 points and hit two triples vs. the Jazz on Monday.

The Pelicans were in comeback mode down the stretch, so Crawford played a season-high 30 minutes. He shot just 5-of-16 from the field with one rebound, two assists and one block, but it's obvious that he has the green light from coach Alvin Gentry. If the Pelicans start shutting down some players in the near future, Crawford could be a sneaky pickup.
Mar 28 - 1:59 AM

Jordan Crawford posted 13 points with seven assists, five rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench in Sunday's game at Denver.

Crawford has been outstanding for the second unit in New Orleans, posting 10 or more points in nine of his 10 outings with the team. He is averaging 14.3 points and 2.5 rebounds over his past four games to give fantasy owners in deeper leagues some solid production. He is also a cheap source of points for those playing DFS down the stretch.
Mar 26 - 10:40 PM

Jordan Crawford played 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday to finish with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including a 4-of-7 mark from downtown.

Crawford has been a great fit for the Pelicans' second unit, providing an offensive punch with 13.0 points, 2.5 triples and 3.2 assists per game. Tonight's 22 points were the most he's scored in a Pelicans' jersey, and he's worth a glance if you need a cheap points-and-3s specialist -- he added just two boards tonight, without any assists, steals or blocks.
Mar 19 - 8:57 PM

Jordan Crawford scored seven points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

The Pelicans didn't need his scoring in this game because Solomon Hill had the game of his life. Crawford is still giving the team good minutes, but his hot start with the two different 19-point games last week seems to be his high point. He's not the strongest hold.
Mar 18 - 12:52 AM

Jordan Crawford has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pelicans.

He was due to get a second 10-day deal this week, but the Pelicans have seen enough to sign him. Steez has arguably been the fourth best player on the team since he joined, averaging 14.2 points, 1.8 boards, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.8 treys in those five. He's really just a points and treys guy, but he can add some dimes and steals. You could do worse in standard leagues, especially now that he should remain in the rotation until the end of the season.
Mar 16 - 2:39 PM

Jordan Crawford is expected to sign a second 10-day deal with the Pelicans.

He's been solid through five games, averaging 14.2 points, 3.2 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 2.8 triples in 23.4 minutes per game. At the conclusion of his second 10-day deal, we'd be very surprised if the Pelicans didn't sign him for the remainder of the season. He's certainly on the radar as a pickup if you're targeting points and 3-pointers.
Mar 16 - 11:30 AM

Jordan Crawford hit 5-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points and one assist in 23 minutes in Tuesday's easy win over the Blazers.

He's played in four games this season, all for the Pelicans in the last week, and has scored in double figures in all of them. If you need points and 3-pointers, he's probably worth a flier, depending on who you'd cut. But just keep in mind he's not going to do much for you in the peripheral stats categories, which was displayed in tonight's one-dimensional performance.
Mar 14 - 11:28 PM

Jordan Crawford scored 19 points with one rebound, six assists, five 3-pointers and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Hornets.

Steez is back. He started out on fire with 15 points on a 150.0 effective field goal percentage, but he cooled off as the game went on with similar usage. Coach Alvin Gentry has used him as both a wing guy and as a ball-handler, so he clearly trusts a guy he hasn't even had on his active roster for a week. His minutes have increased in every game since his arrival and he may actually get to 30 minutes. Still, Crawford is going to be all over the place, so he's really just a competitive league guy for now. He does have four games coming up, so he could be useful if you need treys and points in your upcoming matchup. He's almost a lock to pick up a second 10-day deal, especially with Hollis Thompson's second 10-day deal ending next week.
Mar 11 - 11:10 PM

Jordan Crawford scored 10 points with three assists, three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Earlier at shootaround Crawford said the Pelicans were going to find ways to get him the rock and they did come through. He did some huffing and puffing on the bench during this game, so his wind may not be there all the way yet. If Anthony Davis (wrist) misses any time, Crawford could be looking at a few extra shots. He's just a scoring specialist in deep leagues.
