Report: Suns allow Bucks to meet with Crowder
The Phoenix Suns have granted the Milwaukee Bucks permission to meet with forward Jae Crowder ahead of the trade deadline, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.
The Bucks are believed to be the only team to be approved to visit one-on-one with Crowder, Charania adds.
Phoenix and Milwaukee have engaged in trade discussions for months, with the current framework involving forward Jordan Nwora, guard George Hill, center Serge Ibaka, and a second-round draft pick in exchange for Crowder, Charania reports.
Crowder has been away from Phoenix this season amid ongoing trade demands. The 32-year-old is in the final year of a three-year, $29.1-million contract.
The Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks continue to be interested in adding Crowder.
Crowder averaged 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.4 steals last season for the Suns.
