Earlier this morning, reports came out that the Phoenix Suns have given the Milwaukee Bucks permission to meet with Jae Crowder ahead of the trade deadline according to Shams Charania.

In the article, Shams talks about how the Bucks have a current offer for Crowder. They’re willing to move on from Jordan Nwora, Serge Ibaka, George Hill, and a second-round draft compensation.
This is an intriguing turn of events and I expect the Suns to get the best offer available now as they’re also seeking a third team to send them a forward in return.
The Bucks are also not the only teams that are interested in Crowder. Teams like the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat are still available in Jae Crowder. I can see the Hawks being an interesting candidate due to the fact that the Suns may be eyeing a talented young player like John Collins that they can afford.
Just a little less than a week ago, the Suns had a list of things that they were seeking for a Jae Crowder trade and this was the list that they came up with according to Zach Lowe.
The Phoenix Suns are seeking two of the following three things in exchange for the Jae Crowder:
• A first-round pick
• A good young player
• A solid rotation player

Factor this list in with new Suns owner Mat Ishbia giving them the green light to make any moves they see fit even if that means giving up a 1st round pick, and things can get interesting in the next coming days for Suns fans everywhere.
