Rent Jamal Crawford?

Crawford wants to be traded if not extended

Jamal Crawford has told the Hawks he wants to be traded before the 2010-11 season if the team doesn’t offer a contract extension to his liking, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

He's got one year remaining on his deal, at $10.8 million.  He's 30 years old, coming off an 18/3/2.5 year as an Atlanta "supersub" type role.  I have admittedly limited knowledge of Crawford, but he's always struck me as a large (6'5) combo guard (7 out of 10 years averaging over 4 dimes a night).

I wouldn't give up the farm for Crawford, especially at 30 years old.  We're obviously a young team and have no interest in signing guys on the wrong side of 30 for the long term.  HOWEVA, I do think he could help push us back into the playoffs, something I think our franchise is in desperate need of to stave off the aura of irrelevancy.

Usually this is where I'd offer up some kind of trade proposal, but I really can't find one.  The realistic scenarios I went through between just us and Atlanta did nothing but add to our team that's seemingly full of wings.  Perhaps if we could get another team or two involved?

What say you Pacer Nation, any interest?
