Timberwolves pushing to acquire Jamal Crawford

The Wolves recent victory over the Trail Blazers may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not only did it push them under .500 for the first time all season, but it also may have turned them into sellers instead of buyers as the trade deadline approaches. According to HoopsHype, the Wolves and Clippers have made the strongest push to bring Crawford’s talents to their ball club. Recall that after the lockout ended the Wolves made a strong push for Jamal and he even admittedly came “really close” to signing. Crawford has an affordable $5 million contract this year with a player option at the end of the year. Trading for him could really help fill a need for a true shooting guard instead of starting Luke Ridnour. It also could open more time for Martell Webster to play at the 3 over an ineffective Wes Johnson.
