Hawks Close To Landing Jamal CrawfordHooped Up | June 24, 2009
TheÂ HawksÂ and Golden State are close to finalizing a trade that would bring Jamal Crawford to Atlanta and send Acie Law and Speedy Claxton to the Warriors, according to two different sources with knowledge of the negotiations.
HawksÂ general manager Rick Sund declined to comment throughÂ Hawksâ€™ spokesman Arthur Triche.
In Crawford theÂ HawksÂ would get a veteran player capable of playing both guard positions.
Crawford, 29, averaged 19.7 points, 4.4 assists and 3.0 rebounds last season, splitting his time with New York and Golden State. He also gives theÂ HawksÂ insurance in the backcourt since starting point guard Mike Bibby and backup guard Flip Murray are both unrestricted free agents.
