Report: Miami Heat forward Jae Crowder hoping to work out new contract with team

Jae Crowder Miami Heat

Miami Heat forward Jae Crowder reaffirmed his desire to remain with the Miami Heat long term.

Crowder, 30, was acquired by Miami in a trade deadline deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.

The deal also brought Andre Iguodala to the Heat.

Crowder has been solid for Miami since coming over in the trade and is a big reason why it is in the NBA Finals.

During the regular season for the Heat, Crowder averaged 11.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.

He also was a sniper from long range, shooting 44.5 percent from 3-point range since joining Miami.

The Heat would be smart to bring back Crowder, as he has proven to be a solid role piece around Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.

Crowder and the Heat are trying to pull off the impossible and come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals against the Lakers.
