The Chicago Bulls and Jordan Crawford have agreed on a non-guaranteed training camp deal according to Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania report Wednesday night.
Crawford, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, played on the Dallas Mavericks’ summer league team. He has four seasons of NBA experience, but hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2013-14 season. In his four seasons, Crawford averaged 12.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists while shooting 40.5 percent from the field.
He was drafted No. 27 in the 2010 NBA Draft by the New Jersey Nets and traded to the Atlanta Hawks. Following that, Crawford would go on to play for the Washington Wizards, Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors.
Last season, Crawford went overseas to the Chinese Basketball Association. He played with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers before suffering an eye injury, but went on to play for the NBA D-League’s Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
Crawford isn’t expected to remain on the roster past training camp, though. Both the Chicago Tribune‘s K.C. Johnson and Bleacher Report’s Sean Highkin have pointed out that the Bulls typically carry a 14-man roster (the addition of Crawford gives the Bulls 16 players).
