NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves Target Jamal Crawford Comments On Blazers' Situation

The latest NBA trade rumors indicate that the Minnesota Timberwolves are once again involved in discussions regarding a deal that would net them Jamal Crawford from the Portland Trail Blazers. Nothing is done yet, but the reports pertaining to Crawford have gotten back to him ... and he seems a bit perturbed.

There's apparently been a mutiny on the Blazers roster and local sports columnist and radio host John Canzano is working to get to the bottom of it. He was able to get a hold of Crawford and the shooting guard was a bit defensive regarding his status with the Blazers.

Reached Jamal Crawford who said he doesn't have "enough power to try and get a guy fired."

"Check my quotes since I've been here. Never thrown anyone under the bus-- coach or teammate! I pride myself on being a pro and doing whatever is asked," Crawford said. "I don't even have enough juice to say that I want to play the position I signed up for (shooting guard)."

Canzano notes that Crawford has been "a good soldier" this season, but that final sentence indicates he might not be completely happy with his role in Portland.
