Trade rumor: Fab Melo for Jordan Crawford?

As Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Thursday, the Celtics are offering Fab Melo [1] to any NBA team that can provide sufficient backcourt help, and ESPN.com senior writer Chris Broussard claimed Wizards shooting guard Jordan Crawford is “on their radar.”

The 24-year-old Crawford has averaged 13.2 points, 3.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 26.2 minutes for a bad Wizards team. Here’s former ESPN.com analyst and current Grizzlies [2] vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger‘s scouting report on Crawford (WARNING: Don’t get too excited.):

Crawford and newly signed Terrence Williams — at least for the remainder of his 10-day deal — would battle for the fourth spot in Celtics [3] coach Doc Rivers [4]‘ point guard-less backcourt behind Avery Bradley [5], Courtney Lee [6] and Jason Terry [7]. Crawford has shot 40 percent from the field and 30 percent from 3-point range in two-plus seasons.
