Suns Recruit Crowder
via: NBA.

The Phoenix Suns have made a name for himself in the last couple of months following an 8-0 run during the 'seeding games' at the NBA restart in Orlando.

The Suns came into the offseason with high expectations, trying to add multiple pieces around Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton to become a playoff contender. 

They already added Chris Paul, and now they have secured yet another important player who is expected to make the starting line-up for Monty Williams team. 

The Athletic's Shams Charania confirmed Crowder has reached an agreement with the Suns to a three-year, $30M deal. 

Crowder, who was acquired by the Heat from Memphis during the trade deadline last year, played a huge role in Miami's NBA Finals run at the 'bubble' in Orlando. In 20 games with Miami, Crowder averaged 11.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 44.5% from three-point land.

The 30 year-old is a great addition for the Suns, who had to give up Kelly Oubre Jr. in order to be able to land Chris Paul. Also, with lots of playoff experience, he'll be a great locker room leader for such a young team that features players like Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges
