According to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, the Los Angeles Clippers are in advanced talks with free agent shooting guard Jamal Crawford. The Clippers hope to meet with Crawford in person this week in Los Angeles. Crawford, a 12-year NBA veteran, would likely demand the full MLE from the Clippers. The length of the deal is uncertain.

Crawford played for the Bulls, Knicks, Warriors, and Hawks before signing with the Blazers last off-season. During his time with the Hawks, Jamal became famous for being a scoring SG off the bench, winning 6th Man of the Year with Atlanta in 2010, the season before new Clipper forward Lamar Odom won the same award. With career averages of 15.3 points and 3.9 assists per game, Crawford is a well-known shooter and scorer. He has career shooting averages of 41% from the field and 35% from the field- not exactly a model of efficiency. Last season, his percentages drooped to 38% and 31%, respectively.

The Clippers also have interest in unrestricted free agent guards Ray Allen and Jason Terry.
