“They’re in commerce negotiations proper now. Lots of them are centered round Jae Crowder. Jae Crowder is a participant that’s out there in the marketplace proper now… Jae Crowder is a man within the final yr of his contract.”
In response to Kurt Helin of NBC Sports, three squads are at present serious about maybe making one thing occur for Crowder: the Miami Warmth, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics.
“The Warmth are in search of assist on the 4 after P.J. Tucker left and have curiosity in Crowder,” he wrote.
“Miami may ship again extra capturing to Phoenix within the type of Duncan Robinson. Nevertheless, to make that work the Suns must throw in one other participant — Cameron Payne or Torey Craig — and would possible desire a choose or rookie Nikola Jovic from the Warmth as nicely.
“Boston is in search of depth on the 4 after the ACL harm of Danilo Gallinari and would have Crowder curiosity, however it’s very tough to make the salaries match in a commerce that may work for Boston. New York additionally has been rumored and would put Cam Reddish in any commerce. Nevertheless, they’d nonetheless must throw in additional gamers to make the salaries match.”
Any one of many Warmth, Knicks or Celtics would make sense for Crowder – although he would in all probability be extra impactful in Miami or Boston.
New York is simply too far faraway from championship rivalry to actually maximize what a man like Crowder brings to the desk.
