On Thursday, both players were involved in a three-team trade involving the Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Indiana Pacers.

“The Milwaukee Bucks are acquiring Jae Crowder in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets for five second-round picks, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium,” The Athletic’s Shams Charania tweeted.

Crowder’s stay in Brooklyn was a short one. 12 hours before getting dealt to the Bucks, the former Jazz forward was included in a massive deal in which the Phoenix Suns landed Kevin Durant from the Nets.

Shortly after Charania reported Crowder’s move to Milwaukee, fellow NBA insider, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, shared that Hill, a former Jazz and current Bucks guard, was being traded to the Pacers.

Charania added to the conversation on Twitter. He revealed that the transactions were part of a multi-team deal.

Hours before Crowder was sent from Phoenix to Brooklyn, the Jazz traded Conley to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of another three-team trade.
