Veteran guard Jamal Crawford's preference would be to join rookie Lonzo Ball in the backcourt with the Lakers if he can get bought out of his contract, a source told The Undefeated. The latest National Basketball Association rumors indicate that the Hawks may simply buy out Crawford's contract in order to clear more salary cap space.

One of the best scorers in the National Basketball Association is expected to be available.

It's noted that Crawford has also expressed some interest in joining the reigning NBA Champions as well.

The former sixth man of the year is not the same player he once was.

"Sources informed ESPN that Crawford would seek an immediate buyout and the Warriors would be the front-runners for his services if they still possessed the taxpayer midlevel exception of $5.2 million", Chris Haynes writes. The Hawks could opt out of that second season at a price of just $3 million, though, underscoring how it is a non-guaranteed year for Crawford. Crawford came off the Clippers' bench in most recent seasons and contributed 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game.

The Lakers would be the 37-year-old's seventh team of his career after he played for the Clippers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers.

As Jamal Crawford could soon receive a buyout from the Atlanta Hawks, these LA Lakers rumors indicate that he could become very affordable in free agency.

However, one has to wonder exactly how he'll be able to get to that Lakers' roster with his current situation and the fact that the Hawks may not help much.
