i think Jordan Crawford has done a very good job giving himself some value, setting himself up for a decent next contract, and really improving his game.

I think he should be a guy that can bring back at least a little value to the Celtics if they choose to move him.

Personally, I would not mind seeing the Cavs inquiring about his value. The 2nd round pick they own from Orlando that will land some where around 32-37 I think would be a very fair deal for both sides

and what is Miami going to give up again? Juwan howards contract?

I just dont see them having a lot of players with value that they can trade outside the big three.....They need a big before another shooter on that team....

A guy that thinks he could be as good as Michael Jordan will not fit in coming in and out of the rotation with the Heat. Send Crawford to the Hawks for a pick and lets see if he can be a 20 point a night guys that he believes he can be.

agree-he has real bad shot selection

Well in defense he has played a lot better v this year and taken way better shots. Still a young guy.

And why would the Cs help out the Heat? Is this a requirement from the league to help out the top teams? What garbage will the Heat get in return?

He was drafted by the Hawks and they got rid of him...

Crawford strikes me as a guy who would rather get 20pts a night on a loosing team than averages 7pts as a rotation player with the Heat. I ain't mad at him, I just don't think that he and the Heat are a good fit.

The Heat got rid of Beasly and where is he now? Same with the Grz and Mike Miller. Plenty of guys play on the same team twice.

Why bc he has been on bad teams was young and didnt have a defined role?

The guy averages only 11 shots a game and makes almost 45% of them...and as a starter he only takes 12 shoots and is averaging 6 assist a game with only 2 TO a game...

Sometimes it takes the player finding the right system and the right coach to believe in them which it looks like possibly is what he has found in Boston under Stevens...

I'm not sure if they want him back at a more expensive price. Beasley had no choice. Heat got him back for the min. Miller was drafted by Orlando.

he's played better this year for sure- but he's been running alot of the point cause rondo is outwhich is why he's deferred a little.and the team is well below 500 in an awful conferencewhen rondo returns- he goes back to being a bench guylets not make him into a legit starting playerI agree with FAMU-

Why couldn't the guy be a starter.... there are a ton of guys that start that shouldn't be.

I'm just sayin.Some guys aren't 'winning' players.I don't think that it is coincidence that his teams have stunk wherever he is.I mean he was traded 5 minutes after getting drafted.....LolHe could be a good 6th man type of guy.......But he's no starter on a good team

What's getting traded 5 minutes after getting drafted have to do with anything?
