Mavs Exercise Option To Keep Jae Crowder
The Dallas Mavericks tell DB.com they have exercised the team option on forward Jae Crowder, retaining him for the 2014-15 season at a salary of under $1 million.
Crowder, a 2012 second-round pick, played in 78 games last season and started eight, averaging 4.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 16 minutes per game.
The former Big East Player of the Year at Marquette continues to work on his perimeter shot and the Mavs dream of the hard-working Crowder developing into a poor man's Shawn Marion. Also in play here: Crowder as a bargain-priced trade-able asset.
