NBA free agency 2017: Jamal Crawford to sign 2-year deal with Timberwolves, per report

Free agent shooting guard Jamal Crawford will sign a two-year deal worth $8.9 million to join the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania. The move adds to an impressive Timberwolves’ summer of talent acquisition.

Crawford has reigned supreme as one of the league’s most feared bench scorers of this century. A three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year (2010, 2014, 2016), the veteran perimeter scorer averaged 12.3 points on 36 percent shooting from downtown with the Los Angeles Clippers last season.

Last season, Briante Weber, Ramon Sessions and Brian Roberts all spent time on Charlotte’s roster, although none really locked down the backup point guard spot. Perhaps Carter-Williams can do that, the former Rookie of the Year winner who has seen his career decline ever since the first season in Philadelphia.

Carter-Williams’ most recent stint was in Chicago, were he averaged a career-low 6.6 points on an also career-low 36.6-percent shooting from the field. Before last season, Carter-Williams had averaged double-digit points in the previous three seasons, although his averages had declined three straight seasons. In Chicago, though, Carter-Williams was almost entirely ineffective overall.

In Charlotte, the Hornets must still see a role for Carter-Williams, who is primed to become a reclamation project for someone.

Hip hop acts draw a different crowd, and the white acts bring in more money, Parker told Hayes, according to the lawsuit.

Following this discussion, Hayes talked to Shaw, the organization’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. He told her about the problems of the last year. Shaw told him to speak to Parker’s superior, though Hayes expressed concern that there would be retaliation.
