It is clear that Jae Crowder has played his last game for the Phoenix Suns.
While Crowder was quite good for the team last season (9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists), Phoenix decided that they desired to trade him away and Crowder has stayed away because the front office attempts to search out a latest home for him.
It’s been radio silent on the Crowder front for a number of weeks now but we’re getting more news a couple of possible suitor for him.

Shams Charania is reporting that the Atlanta Hawks are emerging as a possible team for Crowder.
Each teams have been speaking a couple of possible deal currently but nothing has come to fruition.
Is it only a matter of time before Crowder packs his bags and heads to Atlanta?
Crowder Crossing The Country
It’s just a little surprising that a deal for Crowder wasn’t revealed right after it was reported that he would go away Phoenix.
He’s a really talented player in some ways, with the flexibility to defend and grab rebounds in addition to shoot effectively too – and he does all of it with pizzazz and personality.
Crowder is the style of player who could make life painful for a lot of teams because he’s persistent and capable from either side of the ground.
He began in all 67 games last season for the Suns, showing that he’s a primetime player able to be a vital a part of a team.
On paper, he looks like fit for the Hawks, who’re hoping to essentially construct upon their busy offseason and turn into a real force within the East.
Crowder wasn’t in a position to win a Finals with the Suns – can he do it with the Hawks?
