SIXERS SHOOTING TO SIGN FREE AGENT SG JAMAL CRAWFORD!

By Annie Ross

The Sixers aren’t wasting time boo-hooing about missing out of signing LeBron James.

They are focusing on shooting guard Jamal Crawford.

Crawford declined his player-option with the Timberwolves and is testing free agency for a second straight year.

The Sixers, meanwhile, have $15 million left in cap space after bringing starting shooting guard J.J. Redick back on a one-year deal.

Both players played together for four seasons with the L.A. Clippers and already share a bond from their stint in Lob City.

Philly lost one of their best shooters in Marco Belinelli, who quickly signed back with the San Antonio Spurs minutes into the start of free agency, getting a two-year, $12 million deal for his services.

Crawford could fill that same role, as well as relieve some of the playmaking duties once Ben Simmons heads to the bench.

The 6-5 offensive spark plug posted some of his worst averages while buried in the Timberwolves bench, averaging 10.1 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 rebounds in a mere 20.7 minutes per game.
