We don’t know what will happen to the Phoenix Suns during the rest of the 2022-23 season.
But we do know that Jae Crowder won’t be a part of it.
Crowder hasn’t played a game at all this season as the front office has been trying to find a trade suitor to take him.
After a dispute between Crowder and the coaching staff about his role on the team, it was clear that there was a huge difference of opinion and Crowder’s days in Phoenix were done.
Since then, we haven’t heard any substantive plans.

We now know that the Milwaukee Bucks have offered a deal to the Suns for Crowder.
Apparently, the package includes Jordan Nwora, Serge Ibaka, George Hill, and second-round draft compensations.
That’s a pretty decent haul for the Suns, especially since it’s for a player who hasn’t been on the floor for a single second this season.
But the question is if they are going to hold out for other offers and see what the rest of the league thinks of Crowder.
During his last season, he was producing 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists.
He sees himself as a starter for a team, someone who can help find immediate success.
But do the rest of the teams in the NBA feel the same way?
Will anyone be willing to generate a better deal than the one the Bucks are presenting?
The new ownership of the Suns is almost in place which means the Crowder decision will be the first order of business.
You should expect to hear more about Crowder, the Suns, and the future before the upcoming trade deadline.NEXT: NBA Insiders Question Chris Paul’s Future
