If Crawford becomes a free agent, he'll have plenty of potential suitors. The Minnesota Timberwolves, Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers are among the teams expected to pursue Crawford, according to league sources.
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.
