Rumors have been swirling the best few days and weeks that the Los Angeles Clippers could be looking to move Jamal Crawford. Moving Crawford would make sense, as the team has a crowded shooting guard corps with of course Crawford, J.J. Redick, and the newly acquired Lance Stephenson. Here are five potential landing spots for Crawford if the Clippers do try to move him.
#5 Portland Trail Blazers
Jamal Crawford was a member of the Blazers during the 2011-2012 season. Crawford averaged 14 points, 2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 60 games for the Blazers that included 6 starts. The Blazers were a talented team during Crawford’s one season with Portland, but locker room problems caused major issues between players on the team. When Crawford return to Portland as a member of Clippers, he was booed. He wasn’t surprised by the booing.
“I smiled, actually. I smiled,” Crawford said. “Because anybody who was a part of what happened last year, I think deserves to get booed. I don’t have any hard feelings for the fans here. I took less to come here. I just wanted to get out here and get a win and that’s what we did.”
With Wesley Matthews now a member of the Mavericks, this would be the perfect time for Crawford to return to Rip City and make things right.
