Crawford has signed a deal to play for Shanxi in China, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando reports. Crawford has played in a total of 281 games throughout his six-year NBA career. The former first-round pick originally signed with a German squad back in November but that deal ultimately fell apart due to Crawford failing his medical exams.
Crawford won't sign with German club ALBA Berlin after the team failed his medical exams, EuroHoops.net reports. After he was unable to reach a deal with an NBA team prior to training camp, Crawford intended to continue his career overseas. However, the failed physical now puts his future in question. It's not believed that Crawford is dealing with a significant injury, but he may remain a free agent for a little while longer and attempt to join a team once he's confident he's fully healthy.
Crawford will sign with Alba Berlin of Germany for the remainder of the season, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports. Crawford has seen sporadic roles on numerous NBA teams over the past eight years but wasn't able to land a contract stateside for the 2018-19 season.
Crawford tallied 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across eight minutes during New Orleans' 123-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 1 of their Western Conference second-round playoff series. Crawford was clearly out there to chuck away in what was only his second postseason game with any playing time. The six-year veteran was nearly perfect from the field on the way to what turned out to be the third-highest scoring total on the night for the Pelicans. Crawford has proven he can pile up the points when given the minutes during his career, but he'll only serve as a quintessential DFS tournament play moving forward due to the unpredictability surrounding his usage.
Crawford is signing a deal with the Pelicans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Crawford opened the NBA season in New Orleans before being waived upon the team signing veteran point guard Jameer Nelson. Now, with Ian Clark (ankle) out 5-to-10 days, the Pelicans will bring back Crawford to provide some temporary assistance in the backcourt. It's unclear exactly how long the team plans to keep Crawford on for, but he'll likely play a limited role off the bench until Clark is healthy enough to return to the rotation.
