Warriors tap Hawks for Salary Dump
Reports from ESPN that the Warriors and Hawks are in talks to swap Crawford for Claxton/Law. The Warriors get 2 players they can immediately cut from their roster, and the Hawks get a player who has averaged 20 ppg and 4.5 ast per game over the past 3 seasons.
To recap. the Warriors traded Al Harrington, 20 ppg, 5 RPG to New York for Crawford, a combo guard that couldn't play point and can't defend at either the 1 or 2. They paired Crawford with Monta Ellis, another combo guard who can't play point, or defend the 2.
Best reaction from a fan on Hawksquawk: "If Nellie doesn't want a chunker than that shows there is something wrong with Crawford on it's own. "
