What is everybody's thoughts on Crawford? Where is he going to play, and when he does go to a team will it be for a starting role or his usual scorer off of the bench?

I think he can be a valuable asset to any team.. I am hoping the Celtics pick him up.

Crawford has been a guy to go to the highest bidder. I dont really expect that to change.

However the Celtics, Wolves, and 76ers seem to be interested in trading for him. So maybe he will opt in to his current option year to play with one of those teams.

Could be smart for the Celtics to sign him if they can get the big 4 back together for another run (resign Garnett and Allen at discounted rates)...

If he only passed the ball, he would be a free agent in demand lol. When he's on fire, he can carry your team offensively. When he's off, he keeps shooting and will shoot your team out of a game...

He's a horrible volume shooter. He takes lots of bad shots and doesn't play defense. You have to sit through a LOT of 2-10 games to get a 15-22 game. Thing is, he's a fantastic point guard. He just doesn't like to play point, because he thinks he's Michael Jordan.

don't expect too much out of him, put him on a team that has a great kick out specialist

me too. I really would love to see him in a Wolves uniform, they were in the running last December for him, but at age 32 or whatever, not sure if I am comfortable signing him for more than a couple years at best. And who knows when the production starts to slide. Could be anyday.

I think he'll wind up on the Kings if we're still interested. We were in love with him last year, and he was very seriously considering signing with us but decided to fill in for his good friend Brandon Roy in Portland instead. He declined our contract but followed up with nothing but good things to say and seems to genuinely like the organization.

Do you think he will be prone to a Pierce-like decline? Simply put, his USG will go down and his efficiency will skyrocket. Despite his chuckers stigma, i consider him a high-IQ player. His quickness is already going, but when its completely gone i think his IQ will start to show itself more. He'll always be a great shooter and he's proven to be a talented passer as well. I see him as a player that transforms himself in the coming years and will be servicable for quite a while.

Lets face it, his quickness and his ability to create his own shot at anytime has been a gift and a curse for him over the years.

I think his game revolves around athletic skill much more than Pierce's does, so I am not sure if his usage changing will result in better efficiency, noticeably. He is a shot creator with the handle. I think he would be a fine signing for the Wolves for 2 years, I am just wondering how far off by this season he is from 09-10' season, but if he can keep his offensive rating around 105-107, and PER above 15.5, he can play 30 mpg for the Wolves and be a nice upgrade.
