Crowder is the first professional athlete to engage in an endorsement deal with GRRC. As Arizona's Official Sports Headquarters, GRRC was attracted to his fearless competitive nature and fierce swagger which is the epitome of Gila River's "You Do You" mantra. The gaming enterprise also aligns with his winning spirit which is reflective of Gila River's winning experience for guests.

"Jae Crowder is a bossman, and we are honored to have him as our first-ever brand icon," said Dominic Orozco, president and chief marketing officer at Gila River Resorts & Casinos. "Gila River is celebrating its new resorts designation in a big way with Jae. His talent, drive, and vision with his business manager, Josh Mason, is unmatched. We are excited to welcome Jae as our new teammate to the Gila River family."

A powerful forward with the Phoenix Suns, Crowder has helped the team reach the NBA playoffs for the last two seasons. In addition to being a star athlete, he is big on giving back to the community and is also a budding entrepreneur. His lifestyle clothing brand Bossmann is an expression of his personality to unapologetically be yourself which is complementary to Gila River's mantra, "You Do You."

To kick off the partnership, Crowder will host the Summer Oasis Pool Party at Gila River Resorts & Casinos - Wild Horse Pass in Chandler. This exclusive concert series will feature celebrity DJs the last Saturday of each month from May through September at the resort's new Oasis Pool.

"I have a vision of growing with Gila River as we have a lot of things in common," said Jae Crowder. "Being an athlete at the highest level with one of the best teams in the NBA, it is important to grow my local relationships with people whom I am comfortable with and believe in."
