If Crawford opts out, Minnesota will reportedly be one of several suitors.
Portland extended Crawford's opt-out deadline from June 15 to June 29, so he could potentially be included in a draft day trade. If the Blazers find an appropriate destination for Crawford, he will opt in to the final year of his contract, which will him $5 million. If they do not, he will explore free agency.
Minnesota certainly has a hole to fill at shooting guard, but the 32-year-old Crawford is a curious fit on a young team.
