Report: Jamal Crawford Prefers Atlanta But Will Request Trade If Not Extended

Earlier we noted an NBA Fanhouse report that said Jamal Crawford was preparing to make a trade request if he is not given a contract extension.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Hawks beat writer Michael Cunningham is now reporting similar information.

Jamal Crawford has told the Hawks he wants to be traded before the 2010-11 season if the team doesn’t don’t offer a contract extension to his liking, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

According to the person, Crawford prefers to stay in Atlanta after he qualified for the playoffs for the first time in his 11 NBA seasons. But without a long-term commitment from the Hawks Crawford doesn’t want to play out the final season of his contract in Atlanta, the person said.
