Sixers, Lakers Interested In Jamal Crawford

The Sixers and Lakers both have interest in signing veteran guard Jamal Crawford, according to Marc Spears of EPSN (hat tip to Miguel Gargaritano of Clutch Points).

Appearing on “The Jump,” Spears said Crawford isn’t close to making a decision on a new team, but Philadelphia and L.A. are among the contenders. The 38-year-old also had contact with Golden State, but the Warriors won’t have a roster spot to offer if Patrick McCaw re-signs.

Crawford spent last season with the Timberwolves, but was frustrated by a lack of playing time. He appeared in 80 games, but averaged just 20.7 minutes per night, the lowest since his rookie year, and saw his numbers decline across the board from where they had been with the Clippers.

The Sixers have 19 players signed and 14 guaranteed contracts, so they have room to add Crawford. He would bring firepower to the reserve unit and give the team a much-needed 3-point shooter.

The Lakers also have 19 players under contract with 14 guaranteed. Crawford would add a veteran presence to the L.A. backcourt, which is short on outside shooters to help stretch the floor for LeBron James.

    • You saying no thank you like Lakers have been winning lately. Lakers are in win now mode. Not rebuilding. No time to see what Josh Hart can do with playing time.

            How is it possible for someone who isn’t known to be a locker room cancer not making a team better on a min deal.

    I’d choose Philly. 25 minutes a game without the insane pressure in LA.

    hell no we don’t need him in Philly, only if he will take the vets min and willing to mentor the young guards & not expect 25+ mins a game, because his Defense is azz and he take questionable shots we don’t need that on a young team

  3. Afraid he would be a dreadful fit in LA, they have to pass on him.
    Philly could take him for the vets min & with the understanding that he will probably play less than last year in Minny if he is happy then ok, otherwise Philly should pass too, at the end of the day he is not gonna move the needle for 2 of the best teams in the league, if he wants a big role have to go down to the lesser teams.

    He would space the floor out well in Philly and take pressure off of Simmons. The Lakers with the current roster aren’t going to win now.

    If Jamally Crawfish actually wants to win something and go out on top, come on over to the GOAT Boston Celtics. We’re taking the CHIP this season. Book it. Would like to see this classy dude wind up on top for once. Guy can shoot, no questions there. We just had a roster spot open up too, match is too perfect. Come on down, man. Make it happen Ainge.
