Jamal Crawford posted 10 points, five assists, three rebounds and one block in his first game with the Wolves.
J-Craw didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight, but he made an efficient 3-of-5 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs. He's the obvious go-to scorer for the second unit, which is a career he's known for much of his career -- even in his age-37 season, he's a solid option for points, 3-pointers and FT%, with a dash of assists and steals.

Jamal Crawford says he feel "rejuvenated" after agreeing to a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

"I feel like 27," Crawford said. "I feel great, I really do. I take care of myself. I never really get out of shape. I feel I can play another four, five years at this level without a doubt." This isn't the first time Crawford has said he will keep playing in his 40s, but we wouldn't rule it out based on how well he takes care of himself. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he wants Crawford to be a "spark coming off the bench," and we expect him to have a role with minutes in the 20s. The 37-year-old veteran averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.

Jamal Crawford has cleared waivers and is free to sign a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Crawford could sign as soon as this week. The 37-year-old veteran will be used as a combo guard off the bench behind Jeff Teague and Jimmy Butler, but likely won't be anything more than a low-end fantasy contributor. Crawford averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.

Jamal Crawford plans to sign with the Wolves, according to Chris Haynes of

The Vertical reports that it'll be a two-year, $8.9 million deal with a player option in the second season. After the Wolves spent big on Taj Gibson and are already going to give Karl-Anthony Towns 37-39 minutes, they really needed to fill out their backcourt rotation. Crawford fills a need there and should be looking at minutes in the mid-20s. The 37-year-old guard could actually make a run as the Sixth Man of the Year due to the lack of bench scorers on what should be a contending team.
Jul 8 - 6:45 PM

Jamal Crawford is in serious talks to sign with the Timberwolves, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Wolves desperately need some depth in the backcourt and are dying for a shooter, so Crawford would be a terrific fit. The 37-year-old guard has showed no signs of slowing down, playing in at least 26 minutes per game in each of his last three seasons. He still has to clear waivers before anything is official, but the Wolves may be out in front here.
Jul 8 - 6:21 PM

According to Joe Vardon of, Jamal Crawford would sign with the Cavs if they were willing to offer him the full mid-level exception.

Crawford secured his buyout from the Hawks on Friday and is now an unrestricted free agent. Multiple teams, including the Lakers, Warriors, Wolves and Wizards, are interested, but Crawford's preference is to play with the Cavs. The issue is salary. Crawford wants Cleveland's full mid-level, which is $5.2 million. However, the Cavs want to use part of their exception to sign Cedi Osman to a contract. Cleveland acquired Osman on draft night back in 2015 and would like to bring him stateside for the 2017-18 season.

Jamal Crawford and the Hawks have come to terms on a buyout, according to Chris Haynes of

The Hawks GM didn't even mention Crawford when the trade was official, so this news was coming sooner or later. Crawford is getting interest from basically every competitive team with the Cavs, Warriors, Wolves, Wizards and others coming up as suitors. He is 37 years old, but he could still compete for Sixth Man of the Year on any team.
Jul 7 - 6:36 PM

General manager Travis Schlenk mentioned Diamond Stone and a draft pick, but not Jamal Crawford in a statement about the trade on Thursday.

Well, that's interesting. Basically every team with a chance has been rumored to be in on Crawford with the Cavs reportedly getting some interest today. The Hawks and Crawford should reach a buyout agreement at some point this month, but it may require some negotiation because of Crawford's guaranteed money for 2018-19.
Jul 6 - 7:00 PM

Jamal Crawford will join the Hawks as part of a three-team trade with the Clippers and Nuggets.

Crawford was thrown into the deal to make the numbers work, and it's been widely reported that he won't be in Atlanta's plans. He's already been linked to the Warriors and Lakers, so he should have a strong market once he negotiates a buyout with the Hawks. Crawford is 37 years old, but he's said many times that he plans to play for several more seasons. In 2016-17, the veteran combo guard averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game.
Jul 4 - 11:52 PM

Jamal Crawford would reportedly like to join the Lakers if he gets bought out of his contract with the Hawks.

Crawford is expected to be sent to the Hawks in a multi-team deal that will send Danilo Gallinari to the Clippers, but it looks like Crawford has no intention of staying in Atlanta. He reportedly has a "solid relationship" with Lonzo Ball, and the Lakers have the cap space to offer Crawford a respectable contract, so as of right now, the Lakers look like the early favorites to land the three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner should he secure a buyout with Atlanta.

ESPN is reporting that Jamal Crawford could end up with the Golden State Warriors.

Crawford is reportedly headed to Atlanta as part of a three-team trade involving Danilo Gallinari and Paul Millsap. However, Crawford would seek a buyout from the Hawks and would be free to sign with any other team. The Warriors have substantial interest in both Crawford and Nick Young. Crawford, who has won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award three times in his career, would be yet another explosive offensive weapon for the Warriors.
Jul 4 - 10:27 AM

Jamal Crawford could be on his way to join the Hawks.

The details are still rolling in, but Crawford could be headed to Atlanta as part of a sign-and-trade deal between the Hawks, Nuggets and Clippers -- Paul Millsap is joining Denver and it sounds like Gallinari is close to joining the Clippers. Crawford is 37 and the Hawks are rebuilding, so this move for Atlanta is more about the first-round pick the Hawks would take from the Clippers. Diamond Stone (to Atlanta) could also be a part of the deal, but the talks are still ongoing.
Jul 4 - 12:32 AM

Jamal Crawford put up 20 points, four boards, three assists, one triple and one turnover in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 104-91 Game 7 loss to Utah.

Crawford came alive during the fourth quarter of action, scoring 14 of his 20 points while posting a usage rate of 34.3, but ultimately, the end result was yet another first-round exit for Los Angeles. He's due roughly $28.7 million over the next two seasons, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him traded elsewhere during the offseason if the Clippers decide to blow things up. As for fantasy hoops, Crawford is past his prime and won't be worth drafting in most leagues next year.
Apr 30 - 6:48 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 25 points during Sunday's 105-98 loss in Utah, making 9-of-13 field goals with two assists, one rebound and one steal in 31 minutes.

Crawford went 5-of-7 from downtown and this was easily his highest-scoring game of the postseason. The veteran has always been an offensive microwave, and tonight's game is a reminder that even at age 37 he's capable of getting red-hot at a moment's notice. The Clippers need his scoring with Blake Griffin (toe) on the sidelines, so expect Crawford to post a hefty usage rate for the rest of the series.
Apr 24 - 12:09 AM

Jamal Crawford is not concerned with the fact that he's shot just 29.2 percent from the field through the Clippers' first two games of their first-round series with the Jazz.

"For me, it’s not about percentage," Crawford said. "The only thing that matters is trying to win. As long as the good shots are there, I’m going to continue to take them and continue to be aggressive and go from there." Crawford can be a streaky shooter, but head coach Doc Rivers said he likes the looks that Crawford has been getting and wants him to keep firing away. He should continue to flirt with minutes in the mid-20s for however long Austin Rivers (hamstring) is out.
