BREAKING: Jae Crowder Traded To The Milwaukee Bucks

Jae Crowder Traded To Milwaukee

Jae Crowder had a short stay in Brooklyn. Following the Kevin Durant blockbuster last night, the Brooklyn Nets have continued to sell. The Milwaukee Bucks have picked up some key wing depth in exchange for five second-round picks. After the failed superteam, Sean Marks is picking up draft picks like it’s candy. Shams Charania had it below:

Due to disputes with the Suns, Crowder has yet to play a game this season. That should be seen as really good news to Bucks fans. One of the higher-end three and D wings does not have any wear and tear on him, let along two-thirds of the seasons worth. The journeyman’s play style should compliment the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton quite well.

Despite sour grapes at the end, Crowder had a very good run in Phoenix. A trip to the Finals and helping build the best regular season team in the NBA last year. The expiring deal and reasonable cap hit made him a very appealing trade piece across the league. If the Bucks want to win their second title in three years, having someone like Crowder in the fold could end up being an X-factor.

Brooklyn Teardown Continues

The Nets are in complete firesale mode. I would not be surprised to see the entire western conference call them up for either Mikal Bridges or Dorian Finney-Smith. Let’s not get it twisted. They aren’t as down bad as they were following the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett trade. But they still have quite a bit of egg on their face. On the bright side, Nets fans can take solace in knowing that they got KD and Kyrie for nothing and lost them for plenty of assets.

Building for the future around the likes of Cam Thomas, Nic Claxton, and potentially Bridges is not the worst thing in the world. Brooklyn has a very deep roster so it should not be a shock to anyone if they consider moving pieces for more draft capital. But, like everyone says, it’s a make or miss league. The Nets had their shot to become something really special and it passed them by.

Jae Crowder is once again on the move. The Bucks have picked up a key depth piece for only a pile of second round picks. They almost definitely are not done as Milwaukee is gearing up for another Finals run. The Nets, on the other hand, are starting pretty much at square one.
