The Miami Heat have remained interested in trading for Jae Crowder, but have yet to bring frameworks to the Phoenix Suns that have been appealing. Other teams have a clearer pathway to a trade for Crowder than the Heat and their talks with the Suns haven't gained traction.

The Suns have no interest in taking back Duncan Robinson, who has three seasons remaining on his deal. Meanwhile, the Heat haven't shown any inclination to offer Caleb Martin for Crowder.

The Heat would pursue Crowder if he's bought out, but the Suns remain hopeful they will trade him by the deadline.

Crowder went to the Heat in February 2020 and started throughout their run to The Finals. Crowder went on to sign a three-year, $29 million deal with the Suns that offseason.
