Report: Jamal Crawford declines player option with Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford has declined his $4.5 million player option for next season and will become a free agent. In an offseason that has been filled with rumors about a potential roster overhaul, one player is already moving on from the Twin City.

Crawford, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year, will be one of the top reserve scorers on the free agent market. Crawford averaged 10.3 points and 20.7 minutes in 80 contests, marking the 16th straight year that he scored in double figures.

The 38-year-old journeyman’s leadership played an invaluable role as the franchise made their first playoff appearance since 2004.

Crawford boasts an NBA career average of 15 points, 3.4 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. He will be a hot commodity for contenders this offseason.
