After a year in which he struggled both on and off the court, Jae Crowder feels comfortable in Utah.
“It’d be very beneficial for myself, for my sake going forward and for my psyche, just to know exactly what coach wants, just to be a part of what the team wants, to be a part of the group from here on out," Crowder said on Tuesday. In 27 regular-season games with the Jazz, Crowder averaged 11.8 points but shot just 38.6 percent from the field and a subpar 31.6 percent from behind the arc while his scoring decreased to 10.0 points and his overall shooting declined to 32.4 percent in the playoffs. Between the weight loss, the extra time to get acclimated to the team, and the desire to prove himself again, the 6’6” forward doesn’t have a lot of upside but is worth taking in the last few rounds of 12-team formats.
