  • Jamal Crawford: Announces retirement Monday

    Crawford announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has retired from professional basketball.

    Crawford's last NBA action came at the NBA bubble in Orlando late in 2019-20 season, when he made one six-minute appearance for the Nets before being shut down with a hamstring injury. The soon-to-be 42-year-old had gained little traction in free agency the past two offseasons, so his decision to end his playing career hardly comes as a surprise. A three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner, Crawford concludes his 20-year NBA career with averages of 14.6 points, 3.4 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game across stops with the Bulls, Knicks, Warriors, Hawks, Trail Blazers, Clippers, Timberwolves, Suns and Nets.

  • Nets' Jamal Crawford: Out for Game 4

    Crawford (hamstring) is out for Sunday's Game 4 against the Raptors, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    The Nets are down 3-0 and a sweep is fully expected, so chances are, we have seen the last of Crawford already this season. Assuming that's the case, he'll finish the year with just one game under his belt -- Aug. 4 against Milwaukee when he played six minutes and posted five points and three assists.
