76ers, T'wolves and Celtics interested in Jamal Crawford
The Portland Trail Blazers are entertaining offers for guard Jamal Crawford, and there is considerable interest in the 32-year-old, according to CSN Northwest.
The Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics are said to all be in play for Crawford, with the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers also showing some interest.
Crawford had signed a two-year, $10 million deal with the Trail Blazers in December, but the second year had the option for Crawford to opt out. The deadline for Crawford to decide what to do with his player option, which was set for June 15, was extended to June 29 by Crawford and his agent.
The extended deadline was meant to give the Blazers more time to find a suitable trade partner for Crawford. If the Blazers find a viable trade option, then Crawford will exercise his player option. If the Blazers can't find a trade partner, then Crawford will become a free agent.
Crawford averaged 13.9 points, 3.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game with the Blazers in the 2011-12 season.
