09:57 AM ET 04.07 | Jordan Crawford will face his former team, the Washington Wizards, on Sunday at TD Garden. "Who?" Crawford asked before practice Saturday when the issue was broached. Washington, he was told. You'll be playing Washington. Your old team. "I don't recall playing for Washington," Crawford responded -- and he used this line twice. Crawford, who was traded to the Celtics at the Feb. 21 trade deadline, didn't exactly enjoy his time in Washington, as one might infer from his comments. His stint in D.C. did end poorly. Crawford was upset about his sixth-man role, about being displaced by rookie Bradley Beal, and unsure why his role was shrinking on a club that was building for the future. Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld summed it up after his club traded Crawford to the Celtics for the expiring contracts of Leandro Barbosa and Jason Collins (and nothing else): "Jordan did not fit into our current plans ... or our future plans."

No One Recalls You Playing Either, Bro.

But he does recall sitting on the bench in Washington.

He's actually a decent player. If he didn't fit into their "plans" (whatever that might be!!), Ernie should communicate that with the player concerned and do what is rightful. This just shows how poor of a GM he really is.

As far as Crawford, he can't get a better opportunity than playing for the C's. Make the most of it!!

Apparently, neither do the Wizards...

Did he play for a D-League?

I'll never forget his dunk on LeBron.

Celtics are happy to have a healthy player period!

Well it wasn't during an NBA game, so no, not really.
