A 19-year NBA vet, Crawford opted out of the second year of his two-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, which he signed last summer.
At 38 years old, Crawford not only provides strong veteran leadership for a young Sixers team, he can score.
Crawford is ranked third in the top six remaining free agents in the NBA and should still be good to average double-digit points — he hasn’t averaged fewer than 10 since his sophomore season, in 2001–02 .
Basketball Society’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson talks NBA free agency on ESPN Radio.
Drafted out of Michigan in the 2000 NBA Draft, Crawford is revered for his smooth ball handling ability and crafty scoring. That combo has won him three NBA Sixth Man of The Year awards.
Crawford’s best statistical season came during the 2007-08 NBA season while with the Knicks. Crawford averaged 20 points and 5 assists in 80 games for the orange and blue. “His body was just, his game was ahead of his body,” NBA Hall of Famer, Isiah Thomas told me of Crawford, a player he traded for while a team President and head coach of the New York Knicks.
Multiple reports have also indicated that the Golden State Warriors are also interested in signing Crawford.
