In the year In November 2020, the forward signed a three-year, $29 million contract with the Suns. Since this deal, Crowder has been a solid addition for Phoenix. He is set to make $10,183,800 for the 2022-23 season. A hawk could use another wing.
In 60 games with the Suns during the 2020-21 season, Crowder averaged 10.1 points, 4.7 boards and 2.1 assists per game. He has started in 42 races.
Last season, in 67 starts, Crowder averaged 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.4 steals. He also shot 39.9% from the floor and 34.8% from beyond the arc.
Additionally, the forward scored a game-high 19 points in three separate games during the 2021-22 season. In the year On December 6, 2021, Crowder finished with 19 points and 6 boards in 31 minutes of action in the Suns’ 108–104 win over the San Antonio Spurs. He shot 7-of-14 (50%) from the field and 4-of-10 (40%) from 3-point range.
The Bucks or Hawks would be a great fit for Jae Crowder. Not to mention, Miami could use his rebounding and scoring ability right now. He started 0-2 for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The Heat got their first win against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.
