40

Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge tweets that the team's fans should welcome free agent guard Jamal Crawford with a warm reception during his Nov. 6 charity game for roster-building reasons... ------------------- Rip City when Jamal Crawford come[s to] play in my game we need to make him feel at home so he will sign with us! ------------------- Crawford, a 31-year-old Seattle native, spent the last two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks. He has career averages of 15.4 points, 3.9 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 32.2 minutes per game while shooting 41.0% from the field and 35.0% from downtown. As noted on Twitter earlier Tuesday, the University of Portland is in talks to host Aldridge's charity game at the Chiles Center according to a source close to the situation. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
