NBA rumors: Jae Crowder, TJ Warren emerge as candidates for Heat to replace PJ Tucker

Jae Crowder and TJ Warren have emerged as candidates to replace PJ Tucker, if the latter doesn’t re-sign with the Miami Heat.

Tucker has decided to decline his player option, worth $7.4M, and hit free agency, with the Philadelphia 76ers being frontrunners to sign him.

“Should the Heat lose out on Tucker, the team, according to an NBA source, is considering either a trade for former Heat power forward Jae Crowder, who is entering the final year of a contract that pays $10.2 million next season with the Phoenix Suns, or a possible free-agent move forĀ Indiana Pacers forward T.J. Warren,” Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Crowder, who has played for Miami before, can join the team only via a trade. On the other hand, Warren is an unrestricted free agent.
