The NBA free agent period is in full swing but Jamal Crawford is still available and according to a report by David Aldridge, still has multiple teams chasing him. According to Aldridge, the Knicks, Trail Blazers, Pacers and Timberwolves are thought to be the most interested teams.
The problem for Crawford is that he is reportedly looking to make more than the $8 million per year deal that Marcus Thornton got when he re-signed with the Sacramento Kings. That price tag could be too expensive for any of the teams most interested in signing him.
Currently the Knicks can only offer Jamal the "room" exception of $2.5 million. Indiana is also rumored to be in trade discussions with the Memphis Grizzlies for guard O.J. Mayo which could affect their interest in Crawford.
Further complicating matters is the Atlanta Hawks' refusal to do a sign-and-trade deal involving Crawford that would put them above the luxury tax threshold.
