Bobcats, Blazers Could Swap Crawford for Augustin
Now, though, the Blazers are looking to cut their losses. Initially, a deal with Minnesota, which coveted Crawford initially, seemed like a no-brainer, with the Blazers re-patriating Luke Ridnour to Oregon. But Ricky Rubio’s season-ending ACL tear Friday has made that potential deal much less likely, with the Wolves needing to hold onto their veteran point guard.
So, now, according to a source, there’s a chance Crawford winds up with the Bobcats in a potential deal for guard D.J. Augustin. Augustin has played just fine this season, but he’s expendable now that Kemba Walker is there.
