Allen Crabbe has signed with the Brooklyn Nets in a four-year deal worth $75 million. It is understood that the fourth year will be a player option and that the contract includes a trade kicker that could increase the total value to around $83 million.
The Nets are seen by many to be taking a risk by offering Crabbe more money than was expected, as the 24-year-old only managed an average of 10.3 points last season off the Blazer bench. However a field goal percentage of approximately 46% does point to decent efficiency in limited minutes.
Although Portland have two more days to match Brooklyn’s offer, but it is unlikely considering the high number that has been put forward.
Crabbe is supposedly attracted to the idea of starting at the Nets, rather than spending another year as a reserve behind C.J. McCollum.
This is the second notable move that Brooklyn’s general manager has made after signing Miami’s Tyler Johnson to a $50 million offer sheet that will cover four years.
