Report: Knicks Working on Deal For Jamal Crawford

by December 11, 2011

They’ve already waived Chauncey Billups and signed Tyson Chandler and Mike Bibby, but it appears the Knicks are not done wheeling just yet. According to the NY Post, they’re attempting to set up a three-team deal that’d bring former Knick Jamal Crawford back to the Big Apple: “The Knicks and Hawks were in active discussions today on a three-team sign-and-trade deal that would bring combo Jamal Crawford back to the club, according to an NBA source. One source said the trade has a better than fifty-fifty chance of happening. The Warriors are the third team involved in the talks. Knicks guard Toney Douglas, a native of Atlanta, has been included in one scenario of the talks that began yesterday. Crawford is one of the hotter free-agents available but the market hasn’t been as strong as expected for him. The Knicks only have their $2.5 million mini exception available to offer in a two-year package – which Crawford would not accept. In the sign-and-trade proposal, there’s a chance Crawford can clear over $5 million per season. The Knicks will announce the signing today of another Hawks guard Mike Bibby but view him as a backup.”
