The Blazers matched the Nets’ four-year, $75 million offer sheet for restricted free agent Allen Crabbe.
It’s pricey but we like Crabbe’s upside on both ends of the floor, at least enough to justify this big dollar amount. The Nets came at him hard with promises of playing time, and Crabbe’s camp put out a message that he didn’t want to come off the bench so that’s an interesting, albeit unsurprising wrinkle. He will definitely play more than last year’s 26 mpg but how much more is very much in doubt now that Evan Turner is around.
