2011 NBA Free Agency: Jamal Crawford to Celtics?
Some green for Crawford? Jamal Crawford earned $10 million in the final year of his deal with the Hawks and is now a free agent. He should be one of the more attractive players on the market because of his ability to score off the bench. Crawford is 31 and said he wants to play at least five more years. The question is whether he would take a mid-level exception — if that exists under the new collective bargain agreement — from a team such as the Celtics. Crawford clamored for an extension from the frugal Hawks but the club didn’t bite. He is the type of player who would interest the Celtics, and he would likely listen if it meant a chance at competing for a title.
Gary Washburn from the Boston Globe speculates about the possibility of Jamal Crawford in green.
Crawford is the type of player that can get his own shot, although he might look for it too much. The Celtics are dying for another play maker when the offense goes stagnant. There will be plenty of rumors this summer and varying options for the Celtics to consider, but I like this one. Can you see Crawford in Celtic green?
