Hawks to Meet With Jamal Crawford’s Agent

Now that it’s out that Crawford is unhappy with the Hawks for not having offered him a contract extension, it’s time for a meeting, reports the Boston Globe: “Crawford, whose scoring skills helped the Hawks beat the Celtics four times last season and reach the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, is entering the final year of a seven-year, $55.4 million deal he signed with the Knicks in 2004. According to sources, Crawford’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, will meet with Hawks general manager Rick Sund this week to discuss Crawford’s future in Atlanta. With the Hawks having signed Joe Johnson to a maximum deal in July, Crawford is the lone core Hawks player not signed beyond this season. With the uncertainty of a potential new collective bargaining agreement, Crawford appears to be seeking the security of a long-term contract and wants the Hawks to act. But he wouldn’t comment on even playing for the Hawks in 2010-11. ‘I don’t want to talk about next season,’ he said.”

    Jamal Crawford is gonna get moved. The Nuggets should consider moving JR Smith for him.

    i don’t understand why teams don’t want to keep this guy. he’s been moved so many times, yet he’s very productive, and i rarely ever hear about him being a disruption to any team he’s played for…

    Jamal is a huge liability on D that’s why. He doesn’t have any defensive skills at all, not any.

    Yeah sure play the ‘no D card’. But there alot of guys that don’t cook on offense like this guy can…

    agreed Dacre forget that no D stuff, if the Hawks cared any about defense Mike Bibby wouldn’t be their starting PG. Fact of the matter is the Hawks have made no moves, and we are in a league where stagnancy does not get it done PERIOD. Look at the past 5 championship teams, 4 of them won after a key off season additions….Craw got a taste of that playoff action for the first time in his career, and unlike a lot of other guys in this league, he thirsts for more. I say kudos to the guy, hopefully he can land on a winner. He’s been one of my basketball inspirations for the last couple of years.
