There aren’t really any trade rumors that have traction between the Memphis Grizzlies veteran small forward Jae Crowder and the Chicago Bulls, or with anyone for that matter. But the common discussion surrounding Crowder’s status with the Grizzlies is that they could make him expendable at the trade deadline if they continue falling back in the Western Conference standings.

The Grizzlies could have two highly sought after veteran forwards at the trade deadline if they’re intent on making both available to potential suitors. Crowder is a name that is worth following up to the trade deadline, since he’s moved around a lot of late. He’s played for four teams in the last three-and-a-half seasons.

And the other trade deadline target that should emerge from the Grizzlies is the former Golden State Warriors veteran forward Andre Iguodala. Having not played in a single game this season, Iggy has to be getting the itch to land back on a title contender like he was last season. But the 35-year-old wing doesn’t have much time left, and shouldn’t be a trade target for the Bulls at this point in his career.

But since Crowder is having a down season with the Grizzlies (10.2 player efficiency rating and 10.3 points per game), he could come at a low price tag for the Bulls. GarPax should at least look into the idea of trading for Crowder since the Bulls wing depth need is so dire. The Bulls are missing OPJ and fellow small forward Chandler Hutchison for the foreseeable future.
