Jamal Crawford is arguably the biggest name in free agency. Some are doubting whether the 39-year-old veteran has what it takes to play in the NBA but Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics thinks otherwise.
Brown told Brandon Robinson of Heavy.com that he would like to see Crawford back in the league and that his age means little in these times:
“I would like to see him on the floor in general. I think he still can go despite his age, I think people look at the age and start getting funny about whatever, but it’s 2019. The recovery times are different, the ages that people are peaking at are different. I think Jamal Crawford can still play, I say let him go.”
Crawford, who made his NBA debut in 2000, finished last season with the Phoenix Suns, where he averaged 7.9 points and 3.6 assists per game.
