Jamal Crawford is reportedly headed for a change of scenery in Year 19.
The 38-year-old opted out of a fully guaranteed $4.5 million player option to test unrestricted free agency for the second straight season.
A three-time Sixth Man of the Year Award winner, Crawford continued to churn out solid numbers as a bench spark plug in Minnesota. Over the course of 80 games, the volume-scoring veteran averaged 10.3 points per game on 41.5 percent shooting from the field, including 33.1 percent from three.
Crawford remained especially steady on catch-and-shoot opportunities from beyond the arc. According to NBA.com's player-tracking data, the 18-year veteran canned 37.6 percent of his catch-and-shoot three-point attempts.
Plus, Crawford banged home 48.3 percent of his signature pull-up attempts from two-point range.
And while his shot selection remains questionable at times, Crawford's do-it-yourself mentality will be a welcome sight for the Suns, who needed veteran leadership in the backcourt. They are still without a full-time point guard.
Crawford's playing time will likely be limited behind Devin Booker, but he could wind up leading the second unit for some ball handling.
