According to CSNNW, Portland is engaged in trade discussions regarding Jamal Crawford with Boston, Philadelphia and Minnesota: “The Portland Trail Blazers are fielding trade offers for guard Jamal Crawford and the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Boston Celtics are among the teams actively pursuing the scoring specialist intensely, a league source said. Other teams who have shown diminutive interest are the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns according to a person familiar with the situation. [...] A trade would grant Crawford his Bird Rights and If he isn’t traded before or on draft night (June 28), Crawford is expected to opt out and become an unrestricted free agent the very next day.”

Jamal Crawford is either vastly overpaid or criminally underpaid, relative to his colleagues, depending on whether one puts more stock in recent performance or track record. To virtually nobody's surprise (except apparently his own), Crawford received no deal better than the two-year contract the Portland Trail Blazers offered last offseason. The $5 million midlevel exception...
Jamal Crawford isn’t likely to stay with the Portland Trail Blazers after a disappointing season with them last season. The former Sixth Man of the Year could be traded, however, before he opts out of his contract.

It's nearly impossible to predict what the Celtics roster is going to look like next season, but one name being tossed around is sixth man specialist Jamal Crawford. The C's are among the teams actively pursuing Crawford, according to CSNNW.com. The Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly showing interest in the 32-year-old swingman as well, while the...
With the fate of Rays return seemingly zilch, Boston has been looking at players to help out Pierce and replace Ray.
Two options that have been getting a lot of blog attention around C's nation are Jamal Crawford from Portland and Josh Smith from Atlanta. My opinion is I don't see how we get Josh Smith. It seems improbable that the Hawks would do a deal so close in...
Jamal Crawford has officially exercised his opt-out to become a free agent.
The Celtics have a lot of needs. They really could use some size to help their horrible rebounding situation. I mean, imagine how different things would have been if they could have been at least an average rebounding team?
You can also say “imagine how different things would have been had they had a reliable scorer off the bench?” Which is why the Celtics are among...

Brandon Roy’s name may have been accompanied by the word “retirement” not too long ago, but that discussion was clearly premature. As Roy recovers from knee problems and prepares for his return to the NBA, a number of teams who believe he has plenty of good basketball remaining in his legs are lining up and preparing to make an offer. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Bulls,...
This sounds familiar. Both in 2010 and then again in March, the Cavs reportedly targeted PG Jonny Flynn, the former Syracuse star who has fizzled thus far in the NBA.
Now, today, we’re seeing from the Akron Beacon Journal’s Jason Lloyd that Cleveland again is rumored to target Flynn when free agency begins soon.
Everyone rightfully focused on draft, but free agency begins Sunday...
Nicolas Batum will become a restricted free agent on July 1.

The Portland Trail Blazers will have two lottery picks in this week’s NBA draft, and while the potential is there in every prospect, there are a handful of players the team must avoid with the No. 6 and No. 11 picks.
Jeremy Lamb has the ability to be a great scorer, but questions surrounding his motor make him a big-time question mark.
Brandon Roy's recovery from chronic knee problems has been recently spurred by undergoing the platelet rich plasma therapy procedure.
According to many the 2012 NBA Draft will be stacked from the start to the bottom and will eventually be in the same tier like the Draft classes of ’03, ’96, ’84 etc. The Portland Trail Blazers, who finished with an overall record of 28-38 in the lockout season, hold the rights
to the No.6 and No.11 pick.
Portland has a nice chance to fill out their weaknesses, to find their...
