Jae Crowder requested trade when he learned he might not start, Celtics, Grizzlies, Mavericks, Heat potential destinations

- by

Veteran forward Jae Crowder asked not to come to training camp, and the Suns announced they’d granted the request Sunday. Crowder was informed over the summer that he may lose his starting job this season, sources said, and it prompted him to request a trade. The Suns had discussions about it throughout the summer but hadn’t found a deal yet. But it seems clear his time with the team is over.

“I love Jae, and I have information on this so it’s difficult for me to speak on it, but at the same time, the players and organization, I think there is a mutual respect for what Jae has done here.” – Bismack Biyombo on the Jae Crowder situation – 2:53 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
“There’s no bad blood between Jae and I.”

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Cam Johnson said there is no bad blood between him and Jae Crowder. Emphasized how good of a teammate Crowder is and how he could come to him with anything. Has learned with more time in the NBA that everyone’s situation is different. – 1:47 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Monty Williams said he didn’t have a sense from Jae Crowder at the end of the season that would have us arrive at the point the Suns and Crowder are at now. Agreed with the importance Crowder had on helping the younger guys learn how to win and be in playoff basketball. – 12:30 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Monty Williams on the Jae Crowder situation: “I see it as an opportunity for us. Like James said, our guys have been in the gym.”
Suns didn’t know this would be the outcome, but he wants guys to know when something comes up, those conversations with him will remain private – 12:26 PM

Cleaning The Glass estimates Jae Crowder played just 21 possessions as a SF for PHX last season. There’s no way he’s a 3. Full-time stretch 4. – 8:12 PM

Think the Sixers are pretty well-stocked on the wings who are best served playing most of their minutes at the four right now, so don’t expect them to be in the Crowder hunt – 7:21 PM

Okay I know everybody’s mad at Jae Crowder but the man posted his own trade hype video on Instagram and this is everything people love and hate about Bossman all at once pic.twitter.com/q24QrrKt306:12 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
I want to reiterate 2 things with the Jae Crowder convo:
1) This is an unseemly end to his Suns tenure after he’s been nothing but a consummate pro, fan favorite and intrinsic part of the locker room/culture here. His defense, experience and toughness will certainly be missed – 5:55 PM
Jae Crowder @CJC9BOSS
ONE MUST SEEK WORK WHERE HE IS WANTED.. WHERE HE IS NEEDED.! I AM THANKFUL FOR WHAT THESE PAST 2 YRS HAVE TAUGHT ME.! NOW I MUST TAKE ON ANOTHER CHALLENGE WITH CONTINUED HARDWORK & DEDICATION.! FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CLOSED THE DOOR ON ME…. THANK YOU! 99 BACK SOON.! 🥷🏾🤫🤐 – 5:51 PM
