3 Bucks whose stock dropped in the 2022-23 regular season- Jae Crowder

Jae Crowder’s half-season stint in Milwaukee was a mixed bag.

His defensive rating of 11.2 (Via StatMuse) is a little better than the league average, which was expected his production on the offensive end gives me a little concern heading into the postseason.

Crowder averaged 6.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 18 games for Milwaukee. Crowder missed five games during that stretch with a calf injury.

Throughout his career, Crowder has been an inconsistent offensive player and averaged seven shots a game, but in Milwaukee, he only shoots 5.2 attempts per game and had a mix of solid performances (24 points against Memphis on April 7) and 19 points against Wizards (on April 4).

Crowder in April was effective when he was the main offensive weapon, but with the Bucks having a lot of scoring options, Crowder didn’t have to shine offensively.

While Crowder’s defense was impressive for the most part, he’s not the defender he used to be; often being a step slow getting over screens and is most vulnerable when being switched onto quicker guards.

All in all, this is how Crowder was expected to look because keep in mind, he didn’t play basketball for nine months while holding out from the Phoenix Suns, so who’s to say those numbers wouldn’t look a little different if the Suns found a trade partner for him when he asked out of Phoenix in September.

It’ll be interesting to see if these three guys can increase their stock in the playoffs.
