Brooklyn Rumors

In an exclusive interview with NetsDaily, Allen Crabbe talked about how he almost became a Net; what’s it like to stare at a $70 million offer sheet; how much he liked the idea of a new culture run by Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson; and, of course, what if the Trail Blazers hadn’t matched… On large contract offered and whether he was flattered by it: “At first when they made the offer, I thought somebody was joking with me. You know man, it was my first free agency and I knew the new TV deal kicked in so the salary cap went up significantly, but I still didn’t know exactly what my range was. When they told me that (pauses with impressed face) I had so many feelings. I was excited, happy. It was a crazy feeling just knowing that a team wanted me like that. It felt really good.”
