Jordan Crawford Signed in China

Jordan Crawford has signed a contract with Xinjiang Flying Tigers for around $2 Million.  Crawford tweeted out after the news was released that he "signed one month ago."  This is a surprising twist in the eventful NBA off-season.  Crawford was one of the best free agent guards left.  He averaged 13.7 points, 5.7 assists, and 3.1 rebounds in 39 games during his stint with the Celtics last season.  He was then traded to Golden State in January and saw his minutes cut in half.  In Boston he was the first option some nights, but in Golden State he was stuck behind the Splash Brothers tandem of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.  He then averaged 8.4 points, 1.4 assists, and 1.5 rebounds in 42 games for the Warriors.  Crawford can be one of the most streaky players in the league at times but also shows flashes of brilliance like he did in Boston last season.  His unpredictability was fun for fans though.  Wether it was saying he thought he had a chance to be better than Michael Jordan, dunking over LeBron James, hitting crazy deep three's to force overtime in the NCAA tournament, or saying Kevin Garnett had sex with Carmelo Anthony's wife, Jordan Crawford was one of the funnest basketball players to watch.  It's a shame we won't be able to see him play this season in the NBA.
