PostSubject: Warriors Acquire Guard Jamal Crawford From New York Knicks   Sat Nov 22, 2008 10:07 pm

The Golden State Warriors have acquired guard Jamal Crawford from the New York Knicks in exchange for forward Al Harrington, the team announced today.

Crawford, 28, has appeared in 11 games (all as a starter) with the
Knicks this season, averaging 19.6 points and 4.4 assists in 35.6
minutes. He has scored 25-plus points in five of his 11 outings this
season, highlighted by a season-high 32 vs. Utah on November 9. He
currently ranks 25th in the NBA in scoring (19.6), first in three-point
field goals made (35) and 18th in three-point field goal percentage
(.455).

“We are elated to add a player of Jamal’s ability to our team,”
said Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Mullin.
“We think he is an excellent fit for our style and the fact that he can
play multiple positions as a combo guard is a big plus. Additionally,
he is a player who can help us immediately due to some of our injuries
and, looking down the road, would have the ability to play with any
combination of players in the backcourt.”

Last
season, the 6-5 guard averaged a career-high 20.6 points and a
team-leading 5.0 assists per game in 80 games with New York (all
starts). He ranked 23rd in the NBA in scoring and 24th in assists,
making him one of only nine NBA players to rank among the top 25 in
both categories, joining Chris Paul, Baron Davis, LeBron James, Allen
Iverson, Andre Miller, Joe Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter.

“I am really excited and energized about this
opportunity,” said Crawford. “The Warriors have been one of the most
entertaining and fun teams in the league the last few years and I think
my abilities are very conducive with their style and their needs. It
will be a tremendous honor to play for one of the greatest coaches in
the history of the game, Don Nelson, and to be a part of a young team
with a lot of emerging talent.”

Currently in his ninth NBA season, Crawford was originally selected in
the first round (8th overall) of the 2000 NBA Draft by the Cleveland
Cavaliers. He was subsequently traded to the Chicago Bulls on draft
night (June 28, 2000) in exchange for the draft rights to Chris Mihm.
The University of Michigan product played four years in Chicago
(2000-2001 through 2003-04) and the last four-plus seasons in New York.
He scored a career-high 52 points for the Knicks against Miami on
January 6, 2007 and has dished out a career-best 12 assists on three
occasions. Additionally, he is one of only 11 active NBA players to
tally 50-or-more points in multiple games (also scored 50 for Chicago
at Toronto on April 11, 2004).
Overall, Crawford has appeared in 543 NBA games during his career, averaging 14.7 points and 4.1 assists.
Harrington,
28, has appeared in five games with Golden State this season, averaging
12.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in 33.2 minutes.

Crawford will wear uniform #11 for the Warriors.
