The team is currently hearing all offers and attempting to find a suitor that would give them what they want for the star player.
We have heard of a few teams that might attempt to land Crowder, from the Miami Heat to the Boston Celtics and others.
But a new potential team has emerged.

The Suns have inquired about a trade with the Utah Jazz, featuring Jordan Clarkson for Crowder.
According to reports, the Suns would have to add draft compensation and Crowder would likely be bought out by the Jazz.
The prospect of Clarkson on the Suns should have fans of the team elated because he could quickly become one of their best players.
As for Crowder, what would happen to him?
Clarkson In Phoenix
In 2021-22, Clarkson scored 16 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.
He has a field goal percentage of 41.9% and was 31.8% from the three-point line.
Those numbers are a tick down from previous seasons, which suggests that Clarkson can rebound and be an even better player in the years ahead.
It’s not surprising to hear that the Jazz would part ways with Clarkson because they are obviously comfortable shipping out practically every star they have.
As for Crowder, he still has a lot of talent and much to prove in the league.
Even if he does get bought out by the Jazz after a trade, he will surely find a home in the NBA.
We don’t know if this deal between the Suns and Jazz will happen but it’s only a matter of time before Crowder is out of Phoenix.
