Jamal Crawford’s name is currently being brought up in trade talks according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. A rare double sign-and-trade with the Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets could see the former sixth man of the year Jamal Crawford end up on the Atlanta Hawks.

Although he has seen some of his best seasons in the league as a member of the Hawks from 2009 to 2011, reports say that Crawford would be looking for a buyout from Atlanta.

This would leave him as a free agent with the ability to sign with any team he could come to an agreement with, and the Cavaliers could be in a great place to offer him a small veteran contract on a team which will be likely heading to their 4th straight NBA Finals.

The 37-year old could be looking to chase a ring at this later stage of his career, and Cleveland could be a great team to give him that opportunity, bringing Jamal to his first NBA Finals and possibly the first championship.

Although the Cleveland Cavaliers might not be the definitive choice by Jamal Crawford, there are several other teams that could offer J. Crossover a favorable run to a ring, and one of those teams is the Golden State Warriors.

Jamal tweets about the situation

After just recently hitting one million followers on Twitter, Jamal Crawford is focusing his attention on the NBA offseason rather than his milestone.

When the news of this trade spread earlier today, Crawford shared an appropriate tweet supposedly regarding the situation.

It seems that Mr. Crawford finds this whole scenario of the trade to be funny. Whether or not this tweet is aimed at the trade talk is not definitive. But the timing of it just seems too real to be a coincidence.

Jamal was drafted by the Cavaliers

If Jamal Crawford was to be traded, bought out by the Atlanta Hawks and decides to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it would be somewhat of a homecoming for the 3-time sixth man of the year. Jamal ‘Crossover’ was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2000 in the first round with the 8th overall pick, but was traded on draft day to the Chicago Bulls for their pick, Chris Mihm. That hasn’t turned out to be a great move by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the long run. The Cavs had made some questionable draft decisions in the past, but also some very good ones, they have a long history.

If the Cavaliers can sign Jamal Crawford, he could become a great bench addition to the team. He could also add to the shooting ability of the team, and make the Cavs even more exciting to watch. Instead of watching J.R. Smith and Jamal Crawford fight for the sixth man of the year trophy, they can instead, fight for the NBA championship trophy, but this time as a team.
