Good luck JC.

The Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors are closing in on a trade that would find a new home for Jamal Crawford.

NBA front-office sources say that the Warriors and Hawks will soon complete a deal sending Crawford to Atlanta for Acie Law and Speedy Claxton.

A few initial reactions:

  • Foolish me. I actually didn't think the Warriors could move Crawford till he decided whether to opt out or not.
  • Maybe Speedy Claxton can help us bring back Baron Davis again?
  • Sure the defense wasn't there and he won the first annual WDWY, but I'm going to miss JC. He was fun to watch with his sick handles and uncanny knack for drawing the foul on the treys. JC was beyond classy here. Hey at least the man showed up to Fan Appreciation Night unlike Stephen Jackson, Monta Ellis, and Corey Maggette.
  • This is a very odd basketball trade for the Warriors, but maybe we have to dig a little deeper.
  • Acie Law = Marcus Williams 2.0?
