Crawford was waived by the Bulls Thursday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. While this isn't a huge surprise, Crawford has been a solid contributor on NBA benches in the past. He's averaged 12.2 points in 25 minutes per game during his NBA career. The Bulls have Tony Snell, Jimmy Butler, Kirk Hinrich, and Mike Dunleavy, which makes it hard to justify keeping extra weight around at the wing positions. Whatever ends up happening, Crawford should find a home somewhere this season, whether that be the NBA or overseas.
Crawford was a CD-DNP in the Bulls' 94-86 preseason loss Monday in Charlotte. Crawford is on his sixth team in just his fifth season in the league. He's been a solid option off the bench for a handful of teams, averaging 12.2 points and 24.7 minutes per game in his career. However, the shooting guard may have difficulty seeing the same role with Chicago this upcoming season because he's backing up Tony Snell, Jimmy Butler, and Kirk Hinrich on the depth chart. Additionally, Mike Dunleavy (lower back) will take even more playing time away from Crawford when Dunleavy returns.
Guard Jordan Crawford signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Bulls, Yahoo Sports reports. Crawford last suited up in an NBA game during the 2013-14 campaign. He logged an injury-shortened stint in the Chinese Basketball Association and eight more games with Fort Wayne of the D-League last season. This summer, he suited up for the Mavericks in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.5 steals in 25 minutes. His shooting stroke from three-point range escaped him there, as he knocked down just 3 for 27 en route to 36 percent shooting from the floor. If that trend extends into training camp, the 26-year-old guard will likely be hard-pressed to land an extended look with the Bulls.
The Fort Wayne Mad Ants announced Wednesday that the team has acquired shooting guard Jordan Crawford . Crawford signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association last September but left the team after playing just five games. He's played with four different NBA teams in four seasons, most recently averaging 11.0 points and 3.5 assists in 81 games with the Celtics and Warriors during the 2013-14 season.
Warriors guard Jordan Crawford continues to struggle with his consistency, as he scored in double figures for the first time in four games Wednesday, in a 108-88 win over the Celtics. Crawford, who spend the first part of the season with the Celtics, played well against his former teammates. He scored 15 points on 7 of 12 shooting in 19 minutes, despite connecting on just 1 of 5 from three-point range. He added one rebound and one assist while turning the ball over twice in the win. Crawford was enjoying the best season of his career before the Celtics traded him to Golden State. In 22 games since, he is averaging just 7.5 points and 1.8 assists per game.
