Jae Crowder to Play Guard in the NBA?
Former Marquette forward Jae Crowder was known around college basketball as one of the hardest-working forwards in the country.
When his name is called on June 28 in New York City at the NBA Draft, however, the team that drafts Crowder will be adding a shooting guard to its roster.
The 6-foot-6 Crowder, who played shooting guard his sophomore season at Howard Community College, has begun training for the upcoming draft and is looking to move back to shooting guard at the next level.
“I want to play the ‘2,’” Crowder said. “Being 6-foot-6, being able to guard the post can be tough for you, and I don’t want it to be too tough.”
