Free Agent Jamal Crawford Says LaMarcus Aldridge's Interest In Him Is Mutual

Free Agent guard Jamal Crawford said before Sunday night's Rip City Basketball All-Star charity game that Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge interest in him signing with the Blazers is mutual.

"Yeah, definitely. I've been watching the Blazers so long with Brandon [Roy] being one of my best friends. With LaMarcus here, Wes [Matthews] and Ray [Felton], it's almost close to a hometown team. I'm from Seattle. It's the closest thing we have to baketball right now."

"I think I would bring a little bit of everything to Portland. Scoring, creating for other people. Trying to make the game easier for my teammates... I think they're a team on the rise."

"Starting, coming off the bench, it doesn't really matter to me."

Crawford also said he had talked with Roy about playing together in the backcourt at the same time with Crawford guarding the point guard and Roy guarding the off guard.

"We've always talked about that. We play together in the summer all the time, so we've always talked about that."
