ThePhiladelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, and Indiana Pacers were the teams to contact unrestricted free agent Jamal Crawfordas soon as July 1 hit, according to a person very close to the situation.
And I was just informed that the Minnesota Timberwolves called Crawford's representatives as well. They're also pursuing one of Crawford's good friends in Brandon Roy.
Crawford,32, opted out of a a 2-year, 10 million deal he signed last Decemberwith the Portland Trail Blazers.
Inhis lone season with the Trail Blazers, he averaged 14.0 points, 2.0rebounds, and 3.2 assist per game.
