The Washington Wizards guard Jordan Crawford tweeted out his stat line from December early Sunday morning. Jeff Newman at Bullets Forever is asking if this tweet means that Crawford in indeed unhappy in his diminished role with the team.

Reports have also surfaced that Crawford might be on the trade block. His tweet could also mean that he's showing potential teams what types of numbers he is capable of putting up. Before Feb. Crawford was averaged well over 20 minutes per game and in Dec. he averaged 19.1 points per game on 41-percent shooting, including 34-percent shooting from three-point land.
There is no question that Crawford can score, but can he do so efficiently and in the flow of the team's offense? That is what has been the knock on Crawford and what CSN Bay Area reporter Ric Bucher has shed some light on. Crawford makes just over $1.1 million this season and will make $2.1 million next season.
Crawford's contract is not a big gamble to take on for a team looking to add a dynamic scorer or for a contender looking for a little extra scoring pop off the bench. So far, there have not been any teams linked to Crawford through the NBA trade rumor mill, but a team like the Denver Nuggets could use some additional shooting.
