Jamal Crawford is glad that the Clippers didn’t trade him this summer. He admitted to finding the trade rumors stressful. But he was glad that he was one of the four players Los Angeles Clippers didn’t trade this preseason.
Los Angeles Clippers were really close to getting into the Western Conference Finals last season after the famous Steve Ballmer takeover, and the team is obviously looking to improve their game by bringing in fresh talent for the team.
Veteran Player, Jamal Crawford, obviously thought that he would be traded too. He is on the wrongside of thirties and is already looking to make money by setting up training camps for wannabes. But Jamal is the one thing that was going right for the Clippers last season.
He was so much into the game that he was named the NBA sixth man of the year. He has won the title twice already. Jamal can play both shooting guard and point guard. That’s probably why the Clippers thought of keeping him for another season.
Jamal was among the four players who weren’t traded this summer. The other three players were Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Johnson.
Jamal has played with six teams in a career spanning fifteen years. He started out his career with the Chicago Bulls. He has been with New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, and Portland Trail Blazers. He has publicly professed his love for Clippers many times these past few months and is now raving about the pleasures of staying in LA and not being forced to move cities.
Jamal Crawford added that trading was part of the business. It happens all the time in NBA, but he was glad that he didn’t have to force his family to move to a different city.
