Blazers Open to Offers on Jamal Crawford?
The Clippers or any other team looking for scoring could also turn their attention to Portland’s Jamal Crawford. With the Blazers (18-18) underachieving and the 12-year veteran having struggled to fit in this season, sources say he’s available. Crawford signed a two-year, $10 million deal on Dec. 15, but the second season is a player option and he plans to opt out this summer to retest the free agent market.
The 2009-10 Sixth Man of the Year — who, for what it’s worth, would prefer to finish the season in Portland — is averaging 14.5 points in just 26.8 minutes per game. But his 40.2 percent shooting is his lowest mark since the 2006-07 campaign.
