Phoenix Suns 3 and-D forward Jay Crowder has been away from the team all season while he awaits a deal. He’s the kind of two-way street that can really help the Los Angeles Lakers, given his ability to defend both young and strong attackers and lay the groundwork.

Los Angeles needs help with defense along the flank and shooting, two of Crowder’s best attributes. The real question is, assuming the team is reticent to offload either a first-round pick for Crowder (who will either start small or a strong forward in LA, depending on how Darvin Hamm wants to play with him alongside LeBron James), are the Phoenix Suns amenable to the commercial package that Centered around a point guard upgrade from the Lakers and two future second-round picks?
