As murmurs continue to surround his name, Jae Crowder seemingly had enough.
The Phoenix Suns wing published a shady tweet recently, claiming that he believes “it’s time for a change.”
The veteran remains stucked in the trade wagon this offseason, and the post may suggest his true feelings about it.
Crowder is being linked with his former team, Miami Heat, as a potential landing spot should Phoenix decide to cut ties.
Crowder reigniting a reunion with the Heat sounds ideal, as the club remains searching for a worthy candidate to fill their vacant forward slot after the P.J. Tucker departure to the Philadelphia 76ers. Amid playing half a season for them in the 2019-2020 season, his handy play style meshed up greatly in Erik Spoelstra’s system and co-Marquette product Jimmy Butler, helping them to reach the NBA Finals stage in the league Bubble.
The 31-year-old Georgia native will enter the final year of his three-year, $29 million deal that he inked with the Suns last 2020 offseason. It remains yet to be determined on what will happen next, as the club is now floating over the league’s salary cap following the Deandre Ayton max contract signing.
Though he played a serviceable role in his two-year stay, uncertainty remains swirling now due to the team’s financial standing. With Cam Johnson patiently waiting to get his bag soon, Crowder’s remaining time in Arizona has to be tuned on.
