Jamal Crawford has tweeted again. And as usual, this one like his other tweets is enigmatic, sensational and full of ellipses. These might lead people to jump to conclusions and think that he is on his way out of the Los Angeles Clippers.
This one has a special twist.

Rumors are growing louder that Crawford is going to be J.R. Smith’s replacement at the Cleveland Cavaliers, if Smith decides to sign for another team in free agency. The Cavs in that case would send out Brendan Haywood. The fans are pondering over the latest updates of Crawford’s move. And Crawford throws them into more bewilderment with his latest tweet.
This one is a bit different from what is normal. It actually involves a question asked by a fan, which Crawford answered.
“Jamal, are you going to stay a Clipper or join the Cavaliers?”
“I’m not a free agent. I wish I was, but I’m not, so you have to ask Doc.”
This is quite close to confirming the 35-year-old player’s discontent at Los Angeles.
The Clippers arguably had the most successful off-season in the franchise’s history this summer. But the series of signings of free agents has somewhat left the two-time Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford dumbfounded about his future with the team.
