Sports reports on Twitter that Portland Trail Blazers guard Jamal Crawford has officially decided not to pick up his player option for the 2012-13 season. ---------------------------- Guard Jamal Crawford has officially sent his letter to the Portland Trail Blazers to become a free agent this summer. ---------------------------- The Blazers and Crawford recently agreed to extend his deadline for making the decision until June 29 to open up the possibility of a Draft day trade. Update: Here's Crawford's explanation from Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com. ---------------------------- "I wanted to experience free agency truly for the first time," Crawford told CSNNW.com. "The last two years I've essentially played on one-year contracts and I can't do that to my family anymore. I want a multi year deal." ---------------------------- Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports on Twitter that Blazers GM Neil Olshey said Wednesday night that he hasn't yet received the correspondence. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
