Jordan Crawford is taking his talents to Xinjiang

It's not often that a former-Eastern Conference player of the week isn't able to secure an NBA contract just a year removed from winning the award. Such is the case for Jordan Crawford.

In case it flew under your radar, (Jordan) Crawford, a former NBA veteran who turns 26 years old today and registered 268 appearances for the Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors, now suits up for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Goodbye for now, old friend
