Free agent guard Jamal Crawford conducted a live chat on SeattleTimes.com and took up a variety of topics that might be of interest to those who follow the Portland Trail Blazers.

Where do you want to play next year?

Jamal Crawford: "I have some places in mind, but I'm not exactly sure on one place yet. I just have to go through the talks and hopefully we have a season and just go from there."

Could you end up back in Atlanta with the Hawks?

Jamal Crawford: "I think there's a chance I could end up back there. But I have interest in whoever has interest in me."

Are you interested in the Portland Trail Blazers?

Jamal Crawford: "The interest is real. Brandon Roy is like a little brother to me but he's also one of my best friends. I've watched Portland play more than any other team in the league. We've always talked about playing together, so we'll just have to wait and see how things shake out."

How does Brandon Roy look?

Jamal Crawford: "We played two days ago, and I'm honestly not sure that he missed more than one shot, and we played for a couple of hours. We all have teams, and B-Roy's team won a lot of games."

Will there be another charity game in the Pacific Northwest soon?

Jamal Crawford: "We will have a charity game here, I think in December right before Christmas. People around the Northwest are going to be happy about some of the players who are coming in. Kevin Durant, John Wall, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, Brandon Jennings, LeMarcus Aldridge...you guys stay tuned. You can follow me on Twitter and through The Seattle Times for sure. It's going to be a heck of a game with a lot of NBA stars, and I think Seattle deserves that."

Crawford said earlier this week that he is indeed interested in the Blazers. Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge has been aggressively recruiting him. Crawford had an entertaining all-around performance in Aldridge's Rip City Basketball Classic charity game last Sunday.
