Well, we kept our old sages, held onto the best young point guard in the NBA, and added a Jordan.
Jordan Crawford, though unrelated to Jamal, has the same shoot-first game that will bring a much needed boost to the recently decimated second-unit. Crawford averaged 14.7 ppg, 3.0 ast, and 2.6 reb in 27 minutes last season. This year, with the return of John Wall and the development of Bradley Beal, Crawford became expendable. Never known for efficiency, Crawford fits into the “irrational confidence” guy mode. A shooter who will keep shooting without hesitation. The Celtics gave up the injured Leandro Barbosa in return.
Hollinger’s scouting report sums it up well,
“+ Shoot-happy guard who takes terrible shots. Capable passer when mood strikes.
+ Very quick and has a good handle. Can finish, but poor long-range shooter.
+ Abysmal defender. Undersized for 2. Must add strength and dial up effort.
