Crowder could be part of an additional trade ahead of the deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported. Brooklyn will also receive Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, four unprotected first-round draft picks in 2023, 2025, 2027 and 2029 and a 2028 pick swap, according to ESPN. TJ Warren is headed to Phoenix in the deal, as well. Durant requested a trade in the offseason with a strong preference to join the Suns with Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Neither Paul nor Booker have won an NBA title, and the addition of Durant likely would have vaulted them to preseason championship favorites. Read more at:  (Vincent Goodwill/Yahoo! Sports)
