Jamal Crawford says the Portland Trail Blazers are “right there” in a three-team battle to sign him to a free agent deal.
“They are right there, definitely,’’ Crawford said by phone late Tuesday night. “I’d be lying if I said they weren’t.’’
Crawford, 31, said the Sacramento Kings and New York Knicks are also in the running for his services. He said he expects to make a decision this week, and will factor three criteria in making his decision: The team’s style of play, where the team is headed, and how he fits in with the coach.
