Jamal Crawford and Hawks agree on buyout

Report: Jamal Crawford agrees to buyout with Hawks

Veteran guard Jamal Crawford is reportedly "Cleveland's to lose" in free agency, according to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, who added, "Crawford would play for the Cavaliers if they offer him the full $5.2 million they can pay to any free agent".

Jamal Crawford was traded from the Clippers to the Hawks as part of the three-team deal that sent Danilo Gallinari to Los Angeles.

Sam Amick of USA Today reported Friday that the Minnesota Timberwolves, Washington Wizards, and Cleveland Cavaliers are the frontrunners for Crawford at this juncture.

A three-time Sixth Man of the Year, Crawford posted his lowest scoring average since his third year in the league, averaging 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game in his last season in Los Angeles.

His addition to the roster would bring a much-needed veteran presence in the locker room and shooting to the backcourt to fill the void left by the departure of Nick Young.
