Report: Sixers pursuing Blazers' Crawford
Would you take Jamal Crawford
over Lou Williams
? And what would you give Portland to get him?
According to CSNNW.com, citing a league source, the Trail Blazers are shopping Crawford
, and the Sixers, Timberwolves and Celtics have shown significant interest in the 12-year veteran.
The 32-year-old Crawford has averaged 15.3 points per game over his career. He averaged 14 last season off the bench. Williams averaged a team-high 14.9 points off the bench last season.
Crawford can opt out of his contract -- a two-year, $10 million deal signed in December -- on June 29. According to the report, if he isn't traded during Thursday's draft, he will opt out and become an unrestricted free agent.
Williams, 26, last month opted out of his five-year, $25 million deal. The Sixers can re-sign him once free agency begins July 1.
The Sixers own the 15th, 45th and 54th picks in the draft.
