Portland GM Neil Olshey said that Allen Crabbe is a "foundational player."
"We all saw what he was able to do last season when he was given the opportunity," Olshey said. "Those opportunities will increase as we go forward. He's an incredible young player in this league." It sounds like Olshey expects Crabbe's role to grow, but that may be tough after the Blazers signed Evan Turner to a four-year deal and he obviously won't be taking minutes away from C.J. McCollum.

Allen Crabbe said that he's willing to accept whatever role he earns in Portland, "whether it's starting or backing up."

"At this point, it’s just about developing myself as a basketball player," said Crabbe, who recently landed a $75 million contract. "Whatever situation they put me in, I’m going to make sure I’m ready to accept my role." He originally signed an offer sheet with Brooklyn in part because he could have started at SG, but faces an uphill battle in Portland thanks to the presence of C.J. McCollum and newly-signed swingman Evan Turner.

The Trail Blazers have matched the Nets' four-year, $75 million offer to Allen Crabbe, thus keeping him in Portland.

To give Crabbe a payday like that shows how high the franchise is on the third-year swingman. Crabbe averaged 10.3 points and 1.4 triples per game on 45.9 percent shooting through 26.0 minutes per game with Portland last year, so he's more of a 3-point specialist in deep leagues. It'll be interesting to see if he can increase his playing time during Year-4, fighting for minutes with Evan Turner.

Restricted free agent Allen Crabbe has signed a four-year, $75 million offer sheet with the Nets.

The Blazers will have three days to match on Crabbe here. The Nets timed it out as best they could with this offer sheet coming on the heels of the Blazers signing Festus Ezeli. Crabbe may not be a big name, but hardcore NBA fans can recognize he's a fantastic player. He saw 31.0 minutes per game against the Warriors in the playoffs with a magnificent 73.7 true shooting percentage. He's also one of the best defenders and is 24 years old. Considering the Blazers will have to max C.J. McCollum next year, they might not be able to match this offer.
Jul 7 - 11:16 PM

Contrary to a previous report, Allen Crabbe has not agreed to a four-year, $70 million contract offer from the Nets.

Crabbe has meetings on July 5th, and the Nets could be among the teams he sees, but as of yet he hasn't agreed to anything. The refuted offer is within his conceivable price range, though a previous report suggested the 76ers might offer him $50 million over four years. We should have resolution soon after the pending meetings on Tuesday.

The 76ers are not expected to offer Allen Crabbe a four-year offer sheet, according to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times.

There was a report on Friday that the 76ers were going to offer Crabbe a four-year deal worth $50 million, but apparently it's not true. The Blazers did sign Evan Turner to a massive four-year, $70 million deal on Friday, but they will still likely match any opposing offers for Crabbe. The Nets and Kings have also been linked to the versatile wing, but it will take more than $50 million over four years to steal him away from Portland.
Jul 2 - 1:51 PM

The Nets have "weighed all day" whether they should sign restricted free agent Allen Crabbe, according to Marc Stein of

To start the day, there was almost no chance Crabbe was going anywhere, but the Blazers giving Evan Turner a four-year, $70 million deal could have opened the door. Crabbe might be one of the most underrated players in the NBA due to being overshadowed, but he is a plus-defender and posted an effective 57.2 true shooting percentage last season. The Nets have a ton of space, so they might offer the max to put pressure on the Blazers.
Jul 2 - 12:11 AM

The Nets are "making a push" for restricted free agent Allen Crabbe, according to's David Aldridge.

The Blazers are almost certainly going to match, assuming they don't land a big-name free agent. Crabbe is widely viewed as an underrated wing for his defense and improved shooting. Plus, his ball-handling improved dating back to 2015 Summer League. He played 31.0 minutes per game in the Warriors postseason series and grew throughout the year, too.
Jul 1 - 12:34 AM

The 76ers, Nets and Kings will all reportedly go after Allen Crabbe during free agency.

Crabbe is going to be a restricted free agent this offseason, so Portland will be able to match any offer he signs, and Crabbe has let it be known that his preference would be to remain with the Trail Blazers. That being said, the 76ers, Nets or Kings could try and steal him away with a big time offer, so it'll be interesting to see how this all plays out. From a fantasy perspective, the 76ers would likely give Crabbe the most opportunity to produce.
Jun 29 - 9:07 AM

Restricted free agent Allen Crabbe said that he would prefer to remain with the Blazers next season.

"Any pay raise is going to be significantly higher than what I’m making now," Crabbe said. "But like I said earlier, it’s just situation really for me. It doesn’t make sense to make a lot of money and go to a team that, if you don’t fit that system, then get paid a lot of money to be frustrated? That doesn’t make sense to me. The culture here, it’s great." Crabbe made a lot of strides this season and was excellent off the Portland bench, averaging 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 treys in 26.0 minutes per game. He's likely earned a larger role for next season, assuming he stays.
Jun 3 - 12:26 PM

Allen Crabbe said he would like stay with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Crabbe is a restricted free agent this summer, but expressed his desire to remain in Portland. While the 24-year-old may get an offer sheet after averaging 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers in 2015-16, the odds are he returns to a rotation role with the Blazers.
May 12 - 1:34 PM

Allen Crabbe caught fire in 33 minutes on Wednesday, finishing the Blazers' season-ending loss with 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including five 3-pointers.

Crabbe sank a handful of timely threes while playing aggressive defense, keeping Portland within striking distance. He added two steals with three rebounds and only one turnover, and it will be interesting to see how much attention he draws as a restricted free agent this summer.
May 12 - 1:57 AM

Allen Crabbe scored 13 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

He has really earned some playing time and has become the best option next to Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum on the perimeter. Crabbe is on the table as a DFS punt.
May 10 - 1:50 AM

The Blazers could start Gerald Henderson or Allen Crabbe over Moe Harkless (hip) on Monday, according to Erik Gundersen of The Columbian.

Harkless is fully expected to play in this game. In Game 3, the Crabbe, C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard trio put up an eye-popping 47.3 net rating in their 19 minutes together. While Henderson was effective in Game 1 and 2 compared to other options, he, McCollum and Lillard were just a -30.8 net rating in 15 minutes. If Crabbe gets the start, he would be the most appealing punt play in DFS.
May 9 - 5:43 PM

Allen Crabbe led a strong bench effort on Sunday with 15 points on 6-of-9 FGs, five rebounds, three assists and one steal, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 118-106 loss to the Warriors.

Fellow reserve Ed Davis added 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists before fouling out, while Gerald Henderson chipped in five points, three boards and three points before being ejected. Crabbe has scored double-digit points in four straight games, shooting 60.6 percent during that span, and on Sunday he earned more playing time than starters Al-Farouq Aminu (15 points in 25 minutes) and Moe Harkless (10 points in 28 minutes).
