Articles about Jamal Crawford

September 4, 2018

Crawford opted out of a $4,544,400 contract with the Timberwolves, as his one year with the team was not a happy union. He had the third-lowest points per game mark of his career (and the lowest since the first two years of his career), a joint-lowest assists per game mark, and a career-worst DBPM of -4.0. He still make a lot of tough shots off the dribble, as is his way, but he was ineffectual defensively, and measured out as an overall net negative. Nevertheless, Crawford's ability to save plays should still get him another contract somewhere. It is however surprising that now, in the first week of September, he still hasn't got one.

Jamal Crawford
PG/SG, 6’5, 200lbs, 37 years old, 17 years of experience

Starting to get old. This was the fourth year in a row his shooting efficiency has declined and his worst PER since his rookie campaign. Crawford’s playing style - which isn’t changing now - needs a certain speed to his game to work, especially with 17 years of scouting reports making it pretty obvious which are the shots that are going up. He is the rare 37-year-old whose main strength is still his ability to break his man. But that speed is starting to go, which is not helping his already limited defence - the quicker players can and do go past him, whereas the bigger players can go over him. Crawford has one year left on his big contract, with a partial guarantee in 2018/19, and unless his salary is to be used in a big trade, he will surely be a strong candidate for waivers in the summer of 2018.

Player Plan: Two years and $28,746,988 remaining, with the second year not guaranteed. Cash in if possible this summer, but if not, the expiring salary may have some EV next summer.
