Here Are The Teams Expected To Have Interest In Jamal Crawford

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Crawford, 37, is included in a three-team trade being finalized that would send the three-time Sixth Man Award victor to the Atlanta Hawks. According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Crawford wants to play with rookie Lonzo Ball.

Crawford is a three-time victor of the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award, and still a more than capable bench scorer in his later years.

While the Lakers are still rebuilding with a handful of younger players, Crawford is one of the most experienced playmakers in the league who could help Ball and others transition into the spotlight in a city he is familiar with from his days with the Clippers.

Hawks expected to buy out Jamal Crawford, but nothing done yet. Crawford has two years and $29 million remaining on his contract, but the final year is partially guaranteed.

OR receiver Carrington suspended after his DUI arrest
Last October a UO graduate accused the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Carrington of pushing him to the ground and breaking his arm. The wideout led OR with 606 receiving yards in 2016 and is expected to be the Ducks' best receiver this season.

Crawford played 54 games for the Warriors during the 2008-09 season, a year before the franchise drafted Stephen Curry. Crawford, a 16-year veteran, also won the NBA Sixth Man Award in 2009-2010 with the Atlanta Hawks and in 2013-14 with the Clippers.

Crawford averaged 12.3 points coming off the bench for Los Angeles during the 2016-17 season.

Known for his sweet shooting, Crawford averaged 15.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 1,182 career games. With his family based in Los Angeles and a solid relationship already in place with Ball, the current Los Angeles Clippers guard would like to sign as a free agent with the Lakers if he were bought out of his contract by the Atlanta Hawks after an expected multi-team trade that is expected to send Danilo Gallinari to the Clippers. Draymond Green and Kevin Durant have been actively recruiting the 10-year vet, a source said.
