Report: Warriors willing to sign-and-trade guard Jordan Crawford

There’s not a lot of minutes to go around in the Golden State backcourt. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will start at the guard spots, and now Shaun Livingston can come off the bench and play either guard spot. Then there is Nemanja Nedovic and Andre Iguodala can play the two.

Jordan Crawford doesn’t really fit in that mix. The unrestricted free agent will not be back in the Bay Area.

But the Warriors are still looking to pull off a sign-and-trade for Crawford to help him land in a good spot (and get a little something back for themselves), reports Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports.

The Golden State Warriors are willing to facilitate a sign-and-trade deal for free agent Jordan Crawford because of their logjam of guards, a league source told Yahoo Sports…

Crawford is receiving interest from the Nets, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks, the source said.

Crawford, who came to the Warriors mid-season in a trade with Boston, is an attacking guard who is score first and not much of a distributor and is an inconsistent jump shooter. The Warriors hoped to find a spark off the bench guy but he wasn’t consistent and worked much better off the ball with Steve Blake handling the offensive controls. It’s not a role the Warriors need but at a relatively cheap price he could help a team and the Warriors can help him get there if needed.

      Thanks for bringing him up anyway. When they write articles about Lebron its ” WOW Another one??!!”

      When they don’t write articles about Lebron the first comment is always something to the tune of “No mention of Lebron in this article”

    Crawford doesn’t need any help from the Warriors to land in a good spot… he’s a UNRESTRICTED free agent. He can CHOOSE what’s a good spot for himself. Smh.

      Not for teams that can’t afford to sign him outright, and would have to use their trade exception to nab him in a S&T.

    I think the piece they get back will be very indicative of where they are looking to go RE Love. I mean for example just choosing a team on that reported list, let’s say Warriors tried to get Shumpert in a deal to the Knicks, it would mean they are looking for insurance at the 2 because they’re trading Klay

    Celtics should have kept him and used him to get Kevin love same thing with Courtney Lee

    They could get a 2nd for him from a team like Chicago or Miami, not much more than a 2nd though.
