Knicks Rumors: Jamal Crawford Out, Is Baron Davis Up Next?

Jamal Crawford has reportedly told the New York Knicks they are no longer among the teams the free-agent guard is considering. As it almost always is, it’s about the money.

The Knicks have only a $2.5 million cap exception to offer a free agent, and Crawford can apparently make much more than that on the open market. The veteran guard could wind up with the Portland Trail Blazers or Sacramento Kings.

So, what will the Knicks do now? Baron Davis was recently cut loose by the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the 32-year-old point guard would seem like a fit for the backcourt-needy Knicks. Except for the fact that Davis has a back injury and currently can’t play. The severity of that back injury is apparently open for debate.

There is also speculation that the Knicks could offer that cap exception to Shawne Williams, who played for the Knicks last season, or Maurice Evans, a 6-foot-5 swingman who finished the 2010-11 season with the Washington Wizards.
