Knicks Out of the Running for Crawford

According to multiple reporters, Jamal Crawford has opted not to take the Knicks' 2 year, $5 million offer. From Alan Hahn:
#Knicks move to @ShawneWill3 as @JCrossover eliminates taking $2.5M room exception to come to NY. Crawford to choose either POR or SAC
Farewell and good luck, Jamal! Ultimately, it was unlikely for Crawford to take a contract well below what other teams have offered him. He would have filled a need with the Knicks, and the reunion would have been a grand, ole time, but it wasn't the best business decision for him to come New York.

As Alan Hahn mentioned, the Knicks will likely focus their efforts to bringing Shawne Williams back to the team. Apparently, Williams as been working out in New York, waiting to see what Crawford would do. He's most likely hoping for the Knicks to increase their offer.

The remaining roster spots should be filled relatively quickly now over the next day or two.
