A lot is being made of a small forward who lost his starting job, but the Suns’ Jae Crowder is still viewed as someone who can help a winning team.
And the Heat seem to believe that Crowder wants to play for them, as relayed by Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports. Crowder is away from the team as the Suns seek a trade.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Miami is indeed a team for which Crowder played recently, assisting them in their run to the Finals in the 2020 Disney bubble. So if he prefers the Heat over all other suitors … well, it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise.
