Jamal Crawford Selects Portland over Knicks

According to sources, Jamal Crawford accepted an 2 year, $10 million offer to play with the Portland Trailblazers.  In selecting the Trailblazers offer, Jamal rejected offers from the Sacramento Kings, the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks.  He also decided to stay closer to his Seattle home instead of returning to New York where he would have had to accept a $2.5 million, one year contract.  The agreement Crawford has with the Trailblazers comes with a one year player option so that if he sees something better, he may decide to take his talents elsewhere.
