News: Crawford anticipates a decline in playing time with the Clippers this season, Robert Morales of the Long Beach Press-Telegram reports.
Impact: The two-time Sixth Man of the Year seems to recognize that the Clippers' offseason acquisition of Lance Stephenson, among other additions the team made this summer to address an unproductive bench, is an immediate threat to his minutes count. Even with lesser competition for run last season, Crawford had already seen his playing time tumble by nearly four minutes per game from his 2013-14 level. It's possible that minutes count could dip into the low-20s if Stephenson provides the kind of impact the Clippers are banking on.
