Crawford spent his 18th NBA season with the Wolves after playing the previous five for the Los Angeles Clippers. Crawford also has played for the Knicks, Bulls, Hawks, Trail Blazers and Warriors during a career that began in 2000-01.
Crawford, 38, made it clear last season that he thought he would be seeing more time off the Wolves bench under coach Tom Thibodeau. His 20.7 minutes per game were his lowest total since he averaged 17.2 minutes in 61 games with the Bulls as a rookie.
