Jae Crowder, professional basketball player in the NBA, was faced with heartbreaking news recently. Unfortunately, Crowder’s mother passed away after her battle with cancer.

The sad news came almost immediately following his trade from the Boston Celtics to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Crowder began his basketball career with the Cavaliers in 2012, was traded to the Celtics in 2014, and just landed back with the Cavaliers in August of this year.

Multiple sources confirmed the news regarding Crowder’s mother on Wednesday, August 23rd. Many expressed their warm thoughts and prayers to the basketball star and his family.

Crowder has not yet released a statement himself. However, he did request prayers from his Twitter followers earlier in August. It is unclear if the prayer requests were related to his mom, but it is assumed.
