According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, in addition to the Hawks, the Suns have recently been engaged in talks with the Bucks on a potential Jae Crowder trade, sources said. Milwaukee has registered interest in the veteran forward who has remained away from the Suns’ organization as both sides work toward a trade. Miami is also believed to be among the current suitors for Crowder.

ANALYSIS: It makes sense why Phoenix is engaging with Eastern Conference teams because trading Crowder to a Western Conference team who has the same goals as them could hurt their chances at a playoff run. It also makes sense that Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Miami are having these talks because they plan to make a playoff run themselves.
