As Carmelo Anthony thrives in Portland, there's another NBA veteran waiting for another chance.
39-year-old Jamal Crawford has yet to play in the NBA after 64 games with the Suns last season. Despite averaging some of his worst numbers as a pro in 2018-19, the 3x Sixth Man of the Year insists he still has something left in the tank.
The rumor is, a few teams have shown interest in bringing him on this season, according to Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of Heavy.com.
A league source shared with me earlier last week that both the Toronto Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks were inquiring about the three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award recipient.
Unfortunately, Scoop B notes a hesitation on negotiations.
Later this weekend I learned that those talks have since stalled.
After a 19-year career, it's clear that Crawford will never be what he was in his prime. In fact, he probably isn't what he was three years ago. But he still has something to offer potential teams, if not for his veteran, Championship mindset, then for his shooting and ball handling.
In the right situation, he could thrive.
It will be interesting to see if someone steps up with another chance for the scoring legend.
