"It could be a part of a major trade package for the Cavs later this year, or, conceivably, the Cavs could make that pick next June", Vardon said. You really going to throw three guys on me, when I'm sharing a court with the best basketball player on the planet? But that won't just be 'the team I used to be on.' That's my old team.
Crowder's emotions had been all over the place since the end of the season, when the Celtics signed free agent forward Gordon Hayward and then drafted forward Jayson Tatum out of Duke.
