“Cause you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone…”  Some years later and the New York Knicks want former Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford back.  Crawford signed a free-agent deal with the Knicks 11 years ago and was one of then-President Isiah Thomas’ first signature moves. Crawford was traded in November of 2008 to Golden State by Donnie Walsh as the Knicks began clearing cap space.  Now they want him back but will have to get creative to do so.

Crawford is currently an expendable piece on the Clippers roster since they added Lance Stephenson during the offseason.  That doesn’t clear the way for the Knicks as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat are also reportedly interested as well.

The Knicks would have to include Jose Calderon in the deal while the Heat could send Mario Chalmers or Chris Andersen (more likely the latter).

Crawford will become an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
