The Clippers had a "positive meeting" with Jamal Crawford in Los Angeles and made the former Blazer a contract offer, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). Crawford is still considering a handful of other teams, however, including the Timberwolves, 76ers, Grizzlies, and Suns. Here are a few more Wednesday morning Clippers items:
- According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Clips are willing to offer Crawford the full $5MM mid-level exception for three years. It's not clear whether or not that was the actual offer extended by the team yesterday.
- The Clippers are also still eyeing Ray Allen, and like the idea of the sharpshooter playing alongside Chris Paul and opening up the court for Blake Griffin, says Turner.
- Chauncey Billups is expected to re-sign with the Clips on a one-year deal that could pay him up to $4.3MM if he reaches bonuses, according to Turner.
- Also in Turner's piece: The Celtics have interest in big man Ryan Hollins for the veteran's minimum.
