Jamal Crawford who just won the 6th man of the year award with the Atlanta Hawks.
6′6″ guard 190 lbs
18 points per game, 3 assists, 3 rebounds, last years average stats.
Crawford is angry that Joe Johnson got so much money and so many years so quick and that the Hawks Org. are dragging their feet on getting JC an extension. In fact rumor is that they are trying to get Horford a new deal before Crawfords. What about figuring out some sort of trade to get him to Utah for additional Offensive threat? Hes looking for another 3-4 year deal with the looming lockout, but I fear a little too expensive. Without having access to all the rumor mills, it seems he expects 9-10 million per year. With the Jazz already over the luxary I don’t see how they could pull it off or who they have that would be worth the trade. Do we have any exceptions available to cover his costs? What would the Hawks want that we have to offer? Finding a 3 team 3 way swap and future draft picks might be the only option, but again it comes down to who would we be willing to give up for him. If Tomic comes through next year than our main shortfall would be the 2, although Tomic appears to be more of an Offensive big man verse a defensive one.
I just find it interesting that the Hawks are either playing it cool or really don’t care to lose such a valuable player for their team.
Anyone have any thoughts about this?
