According to Arizona Sports, the Phoenix Suns offered Jamal Crawford the veteran’s minimum of $2.4 million for the 2018-2019 season.
The Suns’ Vice President of Basketball Operations, James Jones, who is also an interim General Manager, said, per Arizona Sports: “I like Jamal. I know him personally. He’s a great player, he’s a great guy…Those are the types of players that we will look towards as we go through the season.
More importantly, it’s not even about who potentially could be here or who’s out there. I’m focused on who’s here and we know who those guys are. Jamal is a name that – a guy that we’re looking at. He’s someone that we’ve expressed interest in, one of many names”.
Last season the 38-year-old veteran played for the Minnesota Timberwolves and was averaging 10.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists per game, while shooting at 41.5 field goal and 90.3 free-throw percentage.
This summer the Suns selected the No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, signed a deal with veteran Trevor Ariza and acquired Ryan Anderson after the trade.
