Even though the New Orleans Pelicans recently waived guard Jordan Crawford, he may have interest from teams around the league. We looked at the various connections that Crawford has to coaches as well as former teammates. The basketball journeyman can bring familiarity to many franchises and has looked good when on the court during the preseason as well as recent games in the regular season. Regardless of whether these teams have an available roster space, it’s still possible they at least consider bringing him to their team. Boston Celtics Credit Danny Ainge for getting real assets for...

Ian Clark quickly becoming most pivotal reserve in New Orleans Pelicans progressive offensive attack

Ian Clark quickly becoming most pivotal reserve in New Orleans Pelicans progressive offensive attack

Could the former Warrior make a run at the Sixth Man of the Year Award? Prior to signing in New Orleans, Ian Clark was very much on my free agent radar. Once Dell Demps inked him to a one-year deal, Clark instantly became the team’s most interesting reserve off the Pelicans bench. The reason was simple: his potent attack seemed a tailor-made fit for an Alvin Gentry/Chris Finch-led offense. Before training camp, I had mentioned my affinity for Clark on several of our podcasts, believing he would emerge more important than Jordan Crawford, and gasp, possibly E’Twaun Moore. It’s been...

Hot start, slow finish: Pelicans fall 128-120 in home opener to the World Champion Warriors

Hot start, slow finish: Pelicans fall 128-120 in home opener to the World Champion Warriors

A moral victory? Despite another pair of magnificent performances from Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, along with a perfect combined shooting first half by Jordan Crawford and Ian Clark, the Golden State Warriors overcame a 15-point deficit to upend the Pelicans in the second half, 128-120. Cousins entered warm-ups with his hoodie on, Jrue Holiday scored the Pelicans’ first basket and New Orleans started the game on a 17-6 run prior to an Alvin Gentry timeout — all seemed well. Ian Clark netted two critical threes in the first quarter against his former team and Davis ended the...

How Jordan Crawford's two-year NBA exile saved his career

How Jordan Crawford's two-year NBA exile saved his career

These days, Jordan Crawford can’t stop smiling. Back in July, after finishing up an intense workout with his New Orleans Pelicans teammates Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, he was beaming as he caught up with NBA players and reporters he hadn’t seen in a while. A week later in Las Vegas, he stood near the Pelicans’ sideline during one of their summer league games. He was grinning throughout the contest, only switching up his expression when a friend would crack a joke and he’d burst out laughing instead. Then, several days ago, when discussing the 2017-18 NBA season and his journey...
