RealGM Grades the Jamal Crawford Deal an 'A'

Crawford has never been as good as Roy, but they are similar players in their versatility and shot creation. By signing Crawford to a low-risk deal, they are certain to get a strong return on their investment and his presence in the lineup virtually guarantees a return to the playoffs for me. Grade for Blazers: A Crawford gets to come back to the Pacific Northwest and assume a lesser role in terms of minutes, but higher on shot opportunities. Additionally, the West is far more wide open than in the East where a rematch of the Heat and Bulls in the ECF feels inevitable. Crawford did enter the offseason with a more ambitious contract amount and length in mind, but that market never materialized. His deal with the Blazers is value appropriate and a good fit for him. Grade for Crawford: A- Via Christopher Reina, RealGM.com
