Report: Suns to go hard after Jamal Crawford this summer

Would the addition of Jamal Crawford be enough to keep Steve Nash in Phoenix?

We may find out as acquiring Crawford seems to be high on the Suns priority list, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com.

“Aside from Steve (Nash), he’s (Crawford) high if not the top free agent priority on their list,” the source said. “He would fill a need at the two-guard position and he knows they want him.”

Crawford has a player option for next season but is expected to opt-out and test the free agent market. The super-sub expected a stronger demand for his services but found the post-lockout market depressed last year, so he signed in Portland for less than he hoped.

Now, he wants his payday.

Crawford certainly fills needs in Phoenix, but is that going to be enough?
