Nets sign Jamal Crawford

Read on Twitter


Crawford can still ball some, huge activist for black communities and will be a great mentor for LeVert and all of these young guys during the bubble.

Sean Marks is a genius even through this pandemic.

They don't play the same position, but I would not be surprised if even at age 40, he ends up a better contributor than Prince this season.

Crawford still had some juice left in the tank last time I saw him. Either way that gives us another ball handler.

Marks needs to get big man depth asap. Time is ticking.

I heard Crawford’s name mentioned but I did not think he would go to Orlando. I think it’s a great pickup but I would like to see some hungry guys get the shot to play in the NBA.

I've never been a Crawford fan. However in the circumstances, he's probably an ideal candidate to pick up in Dinwiddie's absence.

Crawford is beyond washed, but for our desperate circumstances he was the best we could do.

I like the move as acquiring a highly respected veteran in the league, for a team that will be missing many of its vets in Orlando. On the court, he's not worth much unless he has a random big game (see his last 50 pt game).

Dude can still play... Barnes and SJax kept hyping him on "all the smoke" saying it was crazy GMs have been hesitant on him. This is a good signing. if we have an issue when we restart it will be scoring and shot creation. Crawford excels in both.
