Allen Crabbe Rumors

All NBA Players

But first, it must be understood that to get something, the Blazers must give up something. It’s safe to assume that Olshey will not touch the starting five of Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and Lopez. Veterans Steve Blake and Kaman are core players, and Olshey remains highly protective with two of his former lottery picks in CJ McCollum and Meyers Leonard. That leaves the most likely trade bait forward Thomas Robinson, forward Dorrel Wright, center Freeland, forward Victor Claver and wings Will Barton and Allen Crabbe.
Second-year swingman Allen Crabbe returned to practice after missing the last two games with a strained knee. But the Blazers are taking a wait-and-see approach with him for Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers according to head coach Terry Stotts. “I felt good,” Crabbe said. “It’s a little sore still. For the most part I felt good. Went through most of practice, didn’t sit out too much.” Crabbe stayed home when his team flew to Los Angeles. He said he still feels “tentative” on the knee. “(I) still don’t want to jump off it, put too much pressure on it. It feels fine,” Crabbe said. “It feels fine. It really does. I just want to take it day-by-day now really.”

The Trail Blazers have assigned rookie shooting guard Allen Crabbe to the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League, general manager Neil Olshey announced Monday. The 21-year-old out of California is averaging 2.0 points and 4.9 minutes in 12 games with the Blazers this season. His career high of eight points came Dec. 6 against Utah. Crabbe, the 31st pick in the 2013 NBA draft, is the second Blazers player assigned to Idaho this season, following CJ McCollum’s stint there Jan. 1-5.
And it’s not like Crabbe doesn’t have other things to worry about too. Spotted leaving the Blazers’ suburban practice facility on foot following the team’s first day of training camp, Crabbe said he’s currently living with a friend and the two of them are sharing a car. Without a lottery pick payday, Crabbe has to pay a little more attention to where his money goes. “Financially, everything is stable. You just got to be smart the first couple of months,” Crabbe said. “I’ve got to prioritize, get things that I really need. A car can wait.”
Portland Trail Blazers rookie Allen Crabbe said he was “shocked” when he found out he was traded to Portland after being selected with the first pick in the second round of the 2013 NBA draft. Originally picked by the Cleveland Cavaliers 31st overall, Crabbe didn’t even work out for, or meet with, the Blazers during the predraft process. “It’s funny how the draft process can go,” Crabbe said when meeting the Portland media for the first time following the Blazers first summer league practice Tuesday. “I just feel like this could be a good place for me to start off my career.”
The Trail Blazers on Friday released their roster for this month’s Las Vegas Summer League team. As expected, it will feature the two newest additions to the franchise — rookie guards CJ McCollum and Allen Crabbe — and multiple players from last year’s NBA roster. But there is also one surprise: Reigning Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard also will be included on the roster.

California shooting guard Allen Crabbe, the reigning Pac-12 player of the year, will have an individual workout with Bucks officials Tuesday. The 6-foot-6 Crabbe suffered an injury two weeks ago in a workout in New York and had to cancel an earlier scheduled appearance in Milwaukee. He is considered one of the top shooters in Thursday’s draft and has great length for a guard with a 6-11 wingspan. Crabbe averaged 18.4 points and 6.1 rebounds as a junior for the Golden Bears and shot 45% from the field, 35% from three-point range and 81% at the foul line.
