Report: Jamal Crawford Interested In Return To The Knicks

Jamal Crawford could be interested in returning to the New York Knicks if he is not able to work out a deal to re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks, a source told the New York Daily News.

Crawford, 31, officially signed Andy Miller of ASM Sports to be his new agent this Sunday. Miller currently represents several players on the Knicks, including Chauncey Billups, Jarred Jeffries, and Roger Mason, which could help in negotiations with the team.

The guard also told Oregon Live last month that he would be interested in signing with the Portland Trail Blazers following the end of the NBA labor dispute. Crawford told the site that he considered the Blazers his “hometown team.” Crawford was also in the headlines in October when LeBron James expressed interest via Twitter in bringing him to the Miami Heat.

The Hawks guard has been one of the best bench players in the league over the past two seasons. Last year he averaged 14.2 points in 30.2 minutes per game. His best season came in 2007-09 as a member of the Knicks when as a starter he averaged 20.6 points and 5.0 assists per game.
