Jamal Crawford is an unrestricted free agent heading into the 2011 summer offseason. His $10-plus million will be coming off the books in Atlanta, but will the Hawks regret letting him go?
Atlanta may not be able to afford the former NBA Sixth Man Award winner from a year ago. After putting up two great seasons in the ATL, Crawford should be due for a little pay raise.
Crawford has shown that he can be a scorer or more of a role player on any given team. He is OK with coming off the bench, like he has done recently for the Hawks.
He may be one of the more enticing combo guards on the market this summer. Teams with the money will be competing for his services.
Here are five teams that Crawford could immediately make better heading into the 2011-2012 season.
