Jamal Crawford Wants To Leave Clippers & Join Lakers As NBA Free Agent


A #Jamal Crawford trade has just taken place for the #Atlanta Hawks.

Jamal Crawford was traded by the LA Clippers to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, but it's unlikely that the former 6th Man of the Year will play there.

Crawford's current contract with the Clippers would see him earning $14.2 million in the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season. Hawks fans have fond memories of what Crawford was able to do during his time with the franchise. The Nuggets didn't want to take back any salaries, though, so they brought in the Hawks to help as a third team.

The Golden State Warriors not frontrunners for Jamal Crawford as a free agent due to the fact they can only offer a bit over $5 million.

Veteran guard Jamal Crawford's preference would be to join rookie Lonzo Ball in the backcourt with the Los Angeles Lakers if he can get bought out of his contract, a source told The Undefeated's Marc Spears. He also has a $14.5 million contract for the 2018-19 season, with $3 million guaranteed on it.

Crawford will only consider contending teams following a buyout should the trade go through, sources says. How much longer do you believe Crawford will play in the National Basketball Association for? He's a three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award victor, with the most recent coming in 2016. He's averaged double-digit scoring totals in each of the last 15 seasons, including the 12.3 points per game he scored in 2016-17 behind 36 percent shooting from three-point range.
