New York Knicks Rumors: Jamal Crawford Back To New York?

A reunion between the New York Knicks and free agent guard Jamal Crawford, who spent more than four seasons with the Knicks from 2004-2008, appears to be a real possibility. Crawford is reportedly weighing offers from the Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings.

Crawford averaged 20.7 points per game for the Knicks in 2007-2008, but was traded to the Golden State Warriors 11 games into the 2008-2009 season for forward Al Harrington.

Crawford, 31, averaged 14.2 points per game for the Atlanta Hawks a season ago. Crawford averages 15.4 points and 3.9 assists per game over his 11-year career.

The Knicks are continuing to try and re-structure their backcourt after signing free agent center Tyson Chandler and releasing veteran point guard Chauncey Billups. They have already added veteran point guard Mike Bibby to their roster.

New York apparently has only a $2.5 million trade exception to offer Crawford, unless it can somehow arrange a sign-and-trade.
