Sharpshooter Jamal Crawford, who was traded this week to Atlanta, is interested in joining the Cleveland Cavaliers if he becomes a free agent and reaches a buyout with the Hawks soon.

According to, Crawford recently spoke with none other than LeBron James and is "very interested" in joining the Cavs.

Crawford was traded to the Hawks as a part of a three-team deal with the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers that sent Danilo Gallinari to L.A. and Paul Millsap to Denver. According to Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype, buyout discussions are still ongoing -- but it seems he is intent on reaching a resolution that will allow him to pick his next destination.

Crawford, 37, averaged 12.3 points and 2.6 assists last season. He spent the last five seasons playing for the Clippers and, with shooting at a premium in the NBA, could be a valuable addition to the Cavaliers as they look to avenge their NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors.
