    So it looks like the Pacers are offering 5 million per year for 2 years. Seems like the Pacers are low-balling him, IMO. The Blazers, Nets, Raptors or pretty much any team could offer him that much. That's MLE money.
    Sure, but you got to leave yourself some room to go up if needed.

    ESPN.com

    The Indiana Pacers have extended a two-year offer worth $10 million to Atlanta Hawks free agent Jamal Crawford that would enable Crawford to return to free agency next summer, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.

    The Pacers have been chasing Crawford and Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo, determined to land a guard that can attack and create his own shot before the season starts Christmas Day.

    The offer to Crawford, which would pay him $5 million annually, includes an opt-out after the first year to allow Crawford to join the free agent class of 2012 if he chooses.

    But Indiana's latest attempt to complete a trade with the Grizzlies for Mayo, after a deal struck between the teams last February collapsed on deadline day, has been scuttled again.

    The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported earlier Tuesday that the Grizzlies have informed Mayo that he's not going anywhere and that Pacers free agent Josh McRoberts is likely to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, now that he won't be traded to Memphis for Mayo.

    The Pacers, though, are still facing heavy competition for Crawford.

    The Minnesota Timberwolves, sources said, remain interested in signing Crawford to play shooting guard next to Spanish rookie Ricky Rubio, with Jose Juan Barea already signed away from Dallas to play both spots. The Wolves could get into the bidding for Crawford if they choose to release a veteran through amnesty -- the candidates include Luke Ridnour, Brad Miller or Martell Webster -- to create the needed salary-cap space.

    The New York Knicks, meanwhile, continue to recruit Crawford hard, despite the fact that they can't offer a starting salary above $2.5 million unless they can concoct a sign-and-trade deal involving at least three teams. The Hawks are unwilling to participate in sign-and-trades that would raise Crawford's salary without a third team because of luxury-tax concerns.

    Portland and Sacramento, sources said, also remain in the hunt for Crawford, who ranks on most teams' lists as the most prolific backcourt scorer in the 2011 free agent class.

    If they amnesty Brad and we don't sign him, this board will explode. But I would want him too.

    4 years ago and short term maybe, but what's Brad now 36 or 37? Thanks but no thanks and let's keep moving forward.

    Are you saying if they do or that you heard they did? If they did they are making room for Crawford

    You think anyone on Chicago's squad is thinking to themselves "Man, those Pacers were tough, and they've added a lot of quality guys."

    It sounds to me like the FO is basically telling people "Here's our offer. We want you, but can live without you. Take it or leave it."

    That's a pretty good position to be in, and a good way of doing business in my mind.
    "And Tottenham do not know what hit them...well I can tell you, it's Theo Walcott!"

    "And it's Tony Adams put through by Steve Bould, WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT?! That...sums it all up."

    I think they're thinking "At least we shouldn't have to play them in the first round this year."

    I think Jamal is wanting the Wolves to lay an offer down just so he can get a counter offer from us. Why in the heck would he want to go to the wolves. Wait, I know, So he don't have to play DEFENSE!

    I doubt the Bulls are thinking about anything the pacers are doing right now.

    The thought of Paul George and George Hill harassing DRose on defense makes me giddy. West's scoring would have been big in that series too.

    I'm CRAVING another shot at that team in the playoffs. I think we could beat them. They do not scare me.

    My thoughts exactly! That first Pacers - Bulls match up is going to be one hell of a game, though!!

    I know Minnesota basically has no real 2 guard, but them going for a 32 year old Crawford doesn't make a lot of sense.
    Let's see.....they have Rubio, Ridnour and just adde JJ Barea...now they want to add JCraw to play some Guard minutes?

    Yeah....Kahn and "making a lot of sense" usually don't go together.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Actually, watching that NBATV show with Reggie, Shaq, Charles, Kenny Smith, Steve Smith and Kerr, they were talking about how you look at the schedule early and talk about wins and matchups and who is on your back to back or who you can't wait to play.

    Not to mention we play the Bulls Friday...

    I guess I don't mind the Crawford deal from the perspective of bringing him in as a sparkplug off the bench, a role he's often played in his career... and he's also someone that can make things happen deep in the clock, even if he's a lil over-rated there.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I am not excited about Jamal Crawford in a Pacers uniform. Not really a fan of his game or what he brings to the team. Of course, if he does sign with us I'll hope to be convinced through stellar play. Money-wise, this deal seems fine.

    I hope so. I think we have a decent shot because a quote I saw from the Minn media not too long ago was a quote from Kahn that made it sound like he wasn't too high on adding another piece right now to his guard rotation. I'm not sure they're going to push hard for him.

    My guess is he's deciding if he wants to go back to New York for 2.5m or come here for 5m. He may also have a bigger role in NY as well. So I can see why it's a tough choice for him (keep in mind he's already made a lot of money in this league).

    Our bench is going to be awesome if we can get him signed. Hill, Crawford, Jones, Hansbrough, Foster off the bench? Yes please. That bench would definitely be able to beat nearly any other bench in the league. Catch us back up, or put the lead out of reach. I'll be really pumped if we can sign him.
