AP source: Jamal Crawford goes back to Clippers

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Jamal Crawford has agreed to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers and will sign a $42 million, three-year contract.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because the deal cannot be signed and finalized until at least Thursday.

Crawford was the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year this past season, the third time he's won that award. He averaged 14.2 points in 27 minutes per game for the Clippers, and averaged 17.3 points in the team's six playoff games.

The 36-year-old Crawford has appeared in 1,100 regular-season games. At the end of last season, only nine active players had been in more.
