Help Sham? Is Jordan Crawford RFA or UFA? 

Post#1 » by Jammer » Sun Dec 15, 2013 9:12 pm

Call out to Sham for a clarification.

Sham's website, http://www.shamsports.com in the UK lists Jordan Crawford as a Restricted Free Agent with a qualifying offer this summer of 3,206,867.

Elrod Enchilada's article http://basketball.realgm.com/article/23 ... anny-Ainge’s-Nearly-Impossible-Mission

says that Jordan Crawford will be an Unrestricted Free Agent.

Sham, could you please clarify?

all credible sources I can find say RFA, which makes sense because he was in 2010 draft.

Yes,

www.shamsports.com

ESPN

hoopsworld.com

sheridanhoops.com

all list Crawford as an RFA

That's why Elrod's article saying Crawford is UFA is surprising.

Elrod made a mistake...not sure it deserves a thread.

thanks ryaningf.

But ESPN, hoopsworld.com and sheridanhoops are probably just copying Shamsports.com

So, Sham (the venerable Mark Deeks - writer, humorist and NBAologist extraordinaire) is the man when it comes to these things.

Sort of surprised me that Elrod would disagree with four such prominent sites.

probably just a goof, it happens. I can't see how he could possibly be a UFA

He's actually on here as of recently. Hangs out in the CBA thread a bit.

Sham's been here for over 10 years.
