NBA Rumors: Suns Have Hawks Wing On Their Radar

The Phoenix Suns continue to scour the market for a Jae Crowder trade. And while the Milwaukee Bucks seem to be the most likely destination, another target for the Suns has emerged in Atlanta Hawks' wing Bogdan Bogdanovic.

The 30-year-old Bogdanovic has yet to play this year due to offseason knee surgery. He's been cleared for 3-on-3 work, so he's getting somewhat closer. 

His past two seasons in Atlanta have been very productive, as the 6'6" wing has averaged 15.6 points and 39.8% from downtown in two—albeit injury prone—years. 

As noted by Kevin O'Connor in The Ringer, league sources say "Bogdanovic remains on Phoenix’s radar; he checks a lot of boxes as a shooter, ball handler, and rock-solid defender.

"Since Crowder’s trade request became public in September I’ve consistently heard the Suns want to find a wing to replace him."

Other rumors have had the Suns also interested in another Bogdanovic as a possible add—Bojan from the Detroit Pistons. 

Like others, O'Connor suggests that a multi-team trade is something the Suns can make work. Crowder continues to sit at home, earning his $10.2M on his expiring contract for simply staying away from the Suns.
