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. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Roughly ten minutes into today's Brooklyn Nets group workout, California junior guard Allen Crabbe -- connected in various mock drafts to the Nets at 22nd -- ended his workout early due to a foot injury, feeling at one point like his foot was about to break. His future workouts are now uncertain. "You don't want to see things like this happen at this time," Crabbe told us after the workout. "These workouts are very important for you. It's like a job interview. Hopefully it's nothing too serious and I'll be back playing soon." The Brooklyn Game

But Crabbe needs to improve defensively. "He was a little bit lethargic," the college coach said. "He doesn't really get after it like he should. Somebody's going to have to really get into him defensively. He got more engaged when they made their run [to the NCAAs]. He hasn't really shown he can dig in. It isn't like he doesn't have the tools. That's more desire, more heart." An NBA personnel man concurred. "He's going to have to be with teammates that demand it every night," the personnel man said. "He can't have the leeway. I think he'll take the easy way out most nights if you let him." NBA.com
