Suns are actively looking to trade Crowder, plus he wants out..any interest in him after losing Gallinari?
C/PF-Horford, Baynes, Noel, Theis, Morris,
SF/SG- Tatum, Brown, Hayward, Smart, Semi, Clark

The only way to reasonably acquire him would be to trade Gallo and Kornet for him on or after December 15th.  It’s something I’d be open to considering then depending on our needs and if his situation hasn’t resolved yet, but not worth considering now.

He wants a bigger role not sure that is here.

If we still had Semi as the Jae Crowder replacement, then yes, but Grant took over that role last year and owns it now. We don’t need 2 6’6” power forwards. No for me.

And I am not trading Grant and a 2nd round pick for Jae either. That’s a sideways trade at best, and then loose an asset and take on more money in the deal, why?

We lost a 6’ 10” player in Gallo and Rob is 6’ 8”. We need someone as tall, or taller, than that.

One of the guys I had targeted for the big TPE.  I thought we probably could have gotten him and Craig for a couple of 2nd round picks.  The ship has sailed on him now.
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

I’m not sure Crowder would be a good fit today if we still had the TPE, since he’s grousing about playing time in Phoenix, and wouldn’t get much, if any more, here.  He certainly wouldn’t have been a sensible acquisition in July.

I like Craig, who fits our current TPEs just fine, but I don’t think the Suns are looking to salary dump him.
