Jordan Crawford, like his team, the Celtics, has exceeded expectations this season. Filling for injured starter Rajon Rondo, Crawford has played disciplined basketball under new C's coach Brad Stevens.

So, is it time to sell high on Crawford and deal him for more assets for the rebuilding Celtics.

Celtics Pregame and Postgame host Kyle Draper doesn't think so.

"He's done everything the organization has asked for," Draper said on "Uno Sports Tonight." "Plus you don't know how Rondo is going to be when he returns. Maybe in February when Rondo is back 100 percent and healthy, then you see what you can get for him."

For the time being, Draper said Crawford "is keeping this team going and hitting big shots."

Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy agreed.

"He's a trick or treat player," Shaughnessy said, "but you're not going to get [in return] what he can do."
