Jordan Crawford has been acquired by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants via the D-League’s waiver process, the team has announced. The 26-year-old guard had inked a one year deal with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, but he left the team in November after suffering an eye injury.
The 6’4″ guard out of Xavier appeared in 81 games for the Warriors and Celtics last season, averaging 11.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per contest. In four NBA seasons, Crawford’s career numbers are 12.2 PPG, 2.6 RPG, and 3.2 APG. His slash line is .405/.306/.828.
Crawford is reportedly drawing strong interest from NBA teams, and the D-League could act as a springboard to a 10-day deal for the guard. No specific teams have been mentioned, though the Heat reportedly had concerns about the 26-year-old’s maturity, which turned the team off to inking the guard.
