The Suns are still looking to trade Jae Crowder but president of basketball operations James Jones says the team just hasn’t yet found the “right fit.”
“We have natural deadlines, like the trade deadline, where you usually have a flurry of deals but other than that, it’s just finding the right fit and we just haven’t been able to find that yet,” Jones said.
There have been rumblings about the Suns having interest in Bogdan Bogdanovic and it’s possible that Atlanta and Phoenix work something out once Bogdanovic returns from injury.
Crowder continues to sit out as he waits for a trade from the Suns.
More NBA Trade Rumors
- Malik Beasley could be a solid trade target for the Cavaliers, Owen Crisafulli of Cavs Nation contends. There were rumblings that Utah may not move its veterans after the team got off to a hot start, though Beasley still doesn’t project to factor into the team’s long-term core going forward. Cedi Osman has played well on the wing, though if the Cavaliers are going to elevate their ceiling, they could use more help in that spot and Beasley might be the right fit.
- Are we sure the Pacers will ultimately tear down their roster? There are plenty of people around the league that believe Indiana is no sure bet to do so, Sam Amick of The Athletic explains. Ownership has never been a proponent of tanking so despite rumors afloat about Myles Turner and Buddy Hield, the front office could end up keeping the veterans on the roster as long as the team continues to show promise on the court.
- The Lakers continue to struggle, though Russell Westbrook‘s play off the bench may open up new trade destinations for the former MVP. We recently took a look at three possible landing spots for the point guard.
