Last night in Utah, the Wizards lost for the 14th time in 16 games, and they have the 5th worst record in the NBA with 12 wins in 33 games. While we have just crossed the first third of the regular season, the franchise of the capital is too dependent on Bradley Beal or Kristaps Porzingis and when one of the two is not there, it is the berezina.
As a result, management would be looking for new blood and Mark Stein reports an interest in Jae Crowder, the Suns winger, who has been training in his corner since the start of the season. Holder last year, he lost his place in favor of Cameron Johnson, and by mutual agreement with his leaders, he chose to wait for his transfer.
The Bucks, the Heat or the Hawks were interested, and the Wizards also contacted the Suns. The latter would have refused an offer centered around Rui Hachimura ! The Japanese winger is slowly recovering from psychological issues, and he has only played 16 games this season. That night, despite the absences of Kristaps Porzingis and Deni Avdija, he was a substitute, and he did the bare minimum. Not extended this summer, he will be a free agent on July 1, and everything suggests that Washington will not retain him…
If the deal didn’t happen, it’s because the Suns are looking for someone capable of starting, and probably a veteran. For the moment, the Suns still have not found their happiness, and Crowder still has not played a single minute this season.
