Crawford, who did not play in the NBA this past season, appears to be looking to make the transition into media. He solicited the Worldwide Leader on Twitter this afternoon.
“If ESPN needs new talent, holla at me,” Crawford tweeted.

ESPN certainly has no shortage of former players taking part in its NBA coverage. Crawford, whose playing career spanned 20 seasons, would be a pretty popular choice among his peers if the network did try to scoop him up.
With Nichols gone and The Jump canceled, ESPN will reportedly debut a new daily NBA show before the start of the 2020-21 season. We’d expect Kendrick Perkins, Malika Andrews and other current ESPN NBA personalities to be featured prominently.
The network is also attempting to retool First Take, bringing in a rotating cast of experts and guests to debate against Stephen A. Smith. Smith’s co-host Max Kellerman was taken off the debate show last week.
