Jae Crowder won Big East Player of the Year following a strong senior season at Marquette University. Crowder was then drafted 34th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who immediately traded him to the Dallas Mavericks. After a few seasons in Dallas, Crowder was traded to the Boston Celtics where he really found his niche. As a strong rebounder with a great shot, Crowder was a part of the Celtics rotation and a key player in their lineup. Crowder was traded back to his draft team, the Cavaliers, in August 2017.
