So the issue with Jae was stupid. Left Jae as a starter.
Perk is already saying that Jae should rejoin the team. Jae is a role player. Role players have to be willing to play roles. Period.If Jae had stayed around, starting would probably be a nonissue, but I think getting extended was important as well.
I wouldn't rule out Jae returning to Phoenix if a trade to their liking doesn't materialize.
That is odd. Jones kinda makes it sound like the decision to move on was more on the Suns than Jae. "We just decided"This is what James Jones said on October 19th about Jae Crowder. It hardly seems like shutting the door.
By Kevin Zimmerman, Arizona Sports:
“To Jae’s credit, Jae’s a pro. It’s not like Jae refuses to be a part of this,” Jones said on Oct. 19. “We just decided that for him and for us, it’s best that we pursue alternative options so both groups can move forward.”
Jones, however, did not completely close and lock the door on Crowder returning to the team.
“I’ll never say never,” Jones said. “As of today (on Oct. 19), we’re still pursuing other opportunities. That could change, but I’ll tell you right now we’ll pursue other opportunities.”
