Crawford was waived by the Pelicans on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move comes in response to the signing of Jameer Nelson, which was completed earlier in the day after the veteran was waived by the Nuggets. Crawford, who averaged 9.0 points, 5.0 assists and 1.0 rebounds through the Pels' first two games, will now be a free agent and will look to either catch on with another team or head to the D-League/overseas.

Crawford tallied 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and one rebound across 29 minutes in Friday's 142-101 loss to the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford did not start Friday night and probably will not start when the season opens on Wednesday as he has always excelled leading a team's second unit. That being said, he did record more playing time than anyone else on the team and turned that into a team-high point total. Crawford is a prolific scorer who, even when he does not have the three working, can produce points on the wing, which will help free up big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins down low.

Crawford compiled 21 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal over 30 minutes in Saturday's 123-101 loss to the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford continues to excel off the second unit, and he notably saw 30 minutes for the second straight game Saturday. The 28-year-old has averaged 20.5 points over the last two contests, and has hit double digits in the scoring column in 10 of the last 11 games. Crawford should see a healthy dose of playing time over the final two games of the season, making him a viable Hail Mary-option for those needing a last-minute boost in scoring and shooting percentage.

Crawford recorded 20 points (10-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal across 30 minutes during a 122-106 loss to the Nuggets on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford provided a nice boost for the team off the bench, as he attained his second 20-point outing since he was signed by the team. E'Twaun Moore (ankle) was forced to leave the game, so Crawford's role increased slightly as a result. The 30 minutes matched a season high for him. He has scored in double figures in all but two games with the team, so he is a nice pickup for owners looking for a low-end source of points. His role could increase slightly if Moore is forced to miss games.

Crawford scored 14 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assists, a rebound and a blocked shot over 30 minutes in Monday's 108-100 loss against the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

The former standout at Xavier rolled up 30 minutes of playing time, his highest total of the season, and he scored in double digits for the fifth straight outing and 10th time in 11 games in the Big Easy. He has also hit at least one 3-pointer in each of his 11 appearances in a New Orleans uniform.

Crawford scored 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while adding seven assists, five rebounds and a steal across 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 115-90 win over the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

Tim Frazier moved into the starting lineup in light of DeMarcus Cousins' (ankle) absence, freeing up Crawford to serve as the primary ballhandler off the bench. He received his largest allotment of minutes in nearly two weeks, finishing tied for second on the team in scoring and assists. Crawford should still see his share of minutes when Cousins returns, but his usage could shrivel up as he reverts to sharing the reserve backcourt touches with Frazier andn E'Twaun Moore.

Crawford scored 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt) while adding two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 123-109 win over the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

He's been taking full advantage of his second (and last?) chance at carving out an NBA career, averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists, 2.7 three-pointers and 2.3 boards in seven games with the Pelicans. Crawford is still only 28, so he may yet have a future in the league as a second unit sparkplug.

Crawford has signed a two-year contract with the Pelicans, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford was expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans, but after a strong showing over the last week, the two sides have instead come to agree on a two-year deal. While he likely won't keep up with his hot shooting of 50.9 percent from the field and 51.9 percent from the three-point line, Crawford should continue to get his shots with the Pelicans, making him worth a look for those in need of points and three-pointers.

Crawford is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans on Friday, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford has provided the Pelicans second unit with a needed scoring boost over the duration of his first 10-day deal, registering double-digit points in all five of his appearances while shooting a robust 50.9 percent from the field and 51.9 percent from three-point range. While his efficiency should take a hit sooner or later, the Pelicans' willingness to extend another 10-day deal to Crawford suggests he'll remain a fixture in the rotation for at least the next handful of games. Those in deeper leagues looking for assistance in points and three-pointers should give Crawford a look.

Crawford supplied 13 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one assist across 23 minutes in a 100-77 win over the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Crawford has settled in as a consistent scorer for the Pelicans' second unit since signing a 10-day deal with the club March 6. He's scored double-digit points in each of his first four contests with the Pelicans while shooting an efficient 52.2 percent from the field and 52.2 percent from three-point range. Crawford looks like a safe bet to land another 10-day contract when the initial deal expires later this week, and he should stick in the rotation until his shooting cools off. Those in deeper leagues can mine value from Crawford in the form of points and three-pointers, but don't expect much else from the shoot-first guard.
