The Sixers are looking to fill out their roster after failing to convince LeBron James to take his talents to Broad Street.
The Sixers were active early on Monday morning, re-signing J.J. Redick to a one-year deal. Now Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the team is expressing in interest in the NBA's reigning Teammate of the Year:
Jamal Crawford - a three-time sixth man of the year - spent last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves where he averaged 10.3 points per game in 20.7 minutes a night. Crawford specializes as an iso scorer who is most comfortable shooting in the mid-range.
Crawford has been linked to the defending champion Golden State Warriors this offseason with Crawford reportedly considering signing for the veteran's minimum to join the Warriors.
While Crawford is considering Golden State, he may have mutual interest in joining the Sixers. The 18-year veteran liked a separate tweet from Keith Pompey discussing the fit of Crawford in Philadelphia:
With around $13M left in cap space, @JCrossover makes a lot of sense for #Sixers in free agency. In addition to helping the bench, the Sixers would get another much-needed shooter & a great leader. Let’s face it, the #Sixers need someone of his caliber after losing Belinelli pic.twitter.com/yQH6faeETq— Keith Pompey (@PompeyOnSixers) July 2, 2018
Crawford would provide the Sixers with veteran leadership and stability off of the bench as well as not breaking the bank and likely only signing a one-year deal that would allow the team to maintain roster flexibility for future offseasons.
