With the NBA well and truly in the offseason, speculation about potential trades continue to emerge. 

One that has been doing the rounds for months now though concerns the future of current Los Angeles Clipper Jamal Crawford. 

But, whilst most the speculation to date has involved a move to the Cleveland Cavaliers , reports today suggest that two other franchises have now emerged as interested parties.

According to the New York Daily News' Frank Isola, the Miami Heat and New York Knicks have joined the race for the two-time Sixth Man of the Year.

Both teams require depth off the bench and the veteran Crawford would certainly supply that. 

Whilst the Knicks may feel they have an advantage as a former team of Crawford's - he played at MSG between 2004-2008 - the Miami Heat could pose the biggest threat to Cleveland's interest.

With the likes of Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen having already been links to moves away from Miami the franchise could be valuable assets in any trade offer that materializes.

The Clippers look capable of doing without Crawford after the arrival of Lance Stephenson and Pablo Prigioni and adding the experience of Chris Anderson would balance the roster.

Of course, Cleveland could still trump both of their Eastern Conference rivals, but today's reports show that it won't be quite so easy for the Cavaliers to upgrade their bench as they may have thought.
