Veteran Jamal Crawford is returning to the NBA, having joined the Brooklyn Nets for the rest of the 2019/20 season and he’s pretty grateful for the opportunity to return to the court.
A solid backup guard, the 40-year-old has been Sixth Man of the Year on three occasions – a record shared with Lou Williams – and is only the second player to score more than 10,000 points off the bench. Crawford is also the oldest player to record a 50-point game in league history and the first to score at least 50 points with four different teams.
Following the news of his deal with the Nets, the player got on Twitter to express his gratitude.
Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Chris Paul also took to Twitter to congratulate Crawford, as well as JR Smith, who recently landed a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jamal Crawford last played for the Phoenix Suns, averaging 7.9 points and 3.6 points per game in 64 games for the Western Conference outfit during the 2018/19 campaign.
