One used to date Khloe Kardashian, another wore the elusive 99 jersey, and the last player was the prototypical stretch five.

Jae Crowder

Mr. 99 problems but defense and a timely three-pointer ain't one. In 50 games for the Milwaukee Bucks, Jae Crowder averaged 6.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and a steal a game on 42% shooting overall, and 35% from the three-point line in 23 minutes of playing time. Since being a member of the Boston Celtics back in 2017 for three seasons, he has gone to two NBA finals as a starter with the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat.

Crowder's peak season with the C's in 2016-17 saw him average 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, a steal per game on 46% shooting overall, and a scorching 40% from three on 5.5 attempts.

The 33-year-old can still offer versatile defense, vocal leadership as a veteran, and a capable three- point shot. Crowder should be the campaign this offseason to reunite Beantown with a former fan favorite.
