Jamal Crawford would be ‘honored’ to play for 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers appear to have some interest in signing Jamal Crawford, and that interest seems to be mutual.
Crawford made quite clear in speaking to Brandon Robinson on Scoop B Radio that the prospect of playing in Philadelphia was appealing to him.
“I think for me, especially being out there as a free agent, something could work out,” Crawford said, via Ashish Mathur of Amico Hoops. “I would be honored to play there, but things obviously have to take its course and I kind of got to sit back, but who wouldn’t want to play there?
“I like their city. I like how into it they are about basketball. I like their knowledge of basketball, how passionate they are. I’ve always loved coach Brett Brown. I’ve been on record. I’ve been a fan of his for years. He just needed talent, and now he has that. He added Ben Simmons, I love his game. I love Jojo [Joel Embiid]. They’re both among my favorite players in the league to watch. Markelle [Fultz] is like a little brother to me. Obviously, he went to the University of Washington, and we talk every other day. J.J. Redick is like a brother to me, we’ve been through wars together, so there’s so many things to love about Philadelphia for sure.”
Crawford would serve as veteran depth on a young Sixers team, and they reportedly have some interest. Perhaps something will come of this and Crawford, who is surprisingly unsigned into August, will find his new home.
