Jae Crowder of the Phoenix Suns drew attention Monday morning with a tweet in which people speculated about his future with the team.
In capital letters, he wrote: “Change is inevitable.. Growth is optional.!! I believe it’s time for a change… I want to keep growing.”

Crowder averaged 9.4 points per game in 67 games for Phoenix last season, as a starter.
He shot 39.9% from the field and 34.8% from a 3-point range and added 5.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
The six-foot striker signed for the 2020-21 season as a free agent with the Suns, scoring an average of 10.1 points per game in his first season in Phoenix.
Interestingly enough, Crowder also liked a tweet of himself in a Dallas Mavericks jersey on Monday.
Crowder played 181 games in Dallas to begin his NBA career.
Trade speculation and rumors have surrounded Crowder this offseason, with the attacker’s name often coming up in connection with a potential deal for Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant.
Crowder, now 32, will make more than $10 million next season, the last season of his contract.
Since entering the league in 2013, Jae Crowder has played for seven NBA teams.
Along with the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, he is also a good fit for the Celtics, Cavaliers, Jazz, Grizzlies and the Heat.
He went to the finals with Miami in 2020 and again with Phoenix in 2021.
Crowder will enter year 10 of his NBA career next season.
