Even in his later years, Jamal Crawford can still get buckets. The question remains: where will he be doing so next season?

Crawford seems to have one preferred destination already.

The Philadelphis 76ers have been connected to the famed bench scorer for a few weeks. He was recently asked about the possibility of becoming a Sixer on Scoop B Radio and heaped praise on the franchise.

Via Amico Hoops:

“I think for me, especially being out there as a free agent, something could work out,” Crawford told Robinson. “I would be honored to play there, but things obviously have to take its course and I kind of got to sit back, but who wouldn’t want to play there?

“I like their city. I like how into it they are about basketball. I like their knowledge of basketball, how passionate they are. I’ve always loved coach Brett Brown. I’ve been on record. I’ve been a fan of his for years. He just needed talent, and now he has that. He added Ben Simmons, I love his game. I love Jojo [Joel Embiid]. They’re both among my favorite players in the league to watch. Markelle [Fultz] is like a little brother to me. Obviously, he went to the University of Washington, and we talk every other day. J.J. Redick is like a brother to me, we’ve been through wars together, so there’s so many things to love about Philadelphia for sure.”

Jamal Crawford has a big supporter on the Sixers roster in Ben Simmons.

Back in July, the dynamic point-forward was spotted 'liking' a comment about his team adding Crawford on Instagram.

The Sixers could use another scorer in the backcourt and someone who can space the floor. Crawford's veteran presence doesn't hurt either.

This wouldn't be a big game changer in the Eastern Conference. It would, however, be quite fun.
