The Phoenix Suns and Jae Crowder have mutually agreed that the veteran forward will not participate in training camp as the sides work on a trade, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Jae Crowder himself later took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the matter.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CLOSED THE DOOR ON ME…. THANK YOU! 99 BACK SOON.! 🥷🏾🤫🤐— JAE CROWDER (@CJC9BOSS) September 25, 2022
ANALYSIS: Crowder may be an NBA journeyman, but pretty much everywhere he's gone, his team wins. Crowder's played in two of the last three NBA Finals, though his team did not come up victorious in either series. The 56 playoff games he's played in the last three years are the most among NBA players. He has his warts, but there's no denying he has experience.
