Whether you guys (or Don Nelson) like it or not, Jamal Crawford is going to be a Warrior next year. Here's why, Jamal is not going to opt out of his contract. There is no way he's walking away from 2 years at about 20 million dollars, NO WAY. If he does opt out, there is no way he's even going to sniff that kind of money elsewhere. If he does, he's an idiot and as we know Jamal seems like he has a pretty good head on his shoulders.
So, Jamal doesn't opt out. Now what? The Warriors can try to trade him. Yes, but what team is going to want him (especially his contract). What can we get back in return? I can't see us getting back anything in return other than maybe a second round draft pick and a disposable player like a Ricky Davis (just a random example). I don't think the Warriors are going to pull the trigger on something like that, because let's face it Jamal Crawford can play; he is a very talented kid. We a re not going to trade him for absolutely nothing. So that means we're stuck with him. If Larry Riley can pull something good off I'd be happy, but I can't see that happening.
