Tom Moore: Report out they were going to sign him to 4-year, $50 million offer sheet. twitter.com/MUT168/status/…
Tom Moore: #NBA source: Even with Turner signing, don't be surprised if Blazers match offer for Crabbe. Luxury tax won't stop owner Paul Allen.
Adrian Wojnarowski: As free agency gets started, Portland RFA guard Allen Crabbe has changed representation. He hired Aaron Mintz and Ty Sullivan of CAA Sports.
Alex Kennedy: The Sixers have expressed interest in Dion Waiters, Jamal Crawford, Allen Crabbe and other guards. Philadelphia has a ton of money to spend.
David Aldridge: Hearing the Nets are making a push for Blazers restricted free agent Allen Crabbe. Blazers have consistently said they’ll match any offer.
Tim Bontemps: Have heard the same, along with Allen Crabbe, as I believe @Sam Amick reported. Kings going hard after young SGs. - RT: Chris Mannix: A player gaining significant traction in Sacramento, sources tell @TheVertical: Dion Waiters. Kings have a need for backcourt scoring.
Ian Begley: One rumbling out of Orlando: the Sixers have already been linked to RFAs Harrison Barnes & Allen Crabbe and some members of the organization have discussed pursuing an offer sheet for RFA Jordan Clarkson, sources say.
Sources have confirmed to Cowbell Kingdom that the Kings are among the teams interested in 24-year-old restricted free agent, Allen Crabbe from the Portland Trail Blazers.
A source told Sporting News that the Sixers will also show interest in two other restricted free agents, Dion Waiters of the Thunder and Allen Crabbe of the Trail Blazers. The Thunder would likely let Waiters — a Philadelphia native — go without matching because they’ve acquired guard Victor Oladipo, and Philadelphia could make a sizable offer for Crabbe, who is 24 and had a breakout year with the Blazers. Crabbe, though, is stuck behind guards C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard, and Portland would not be able to match an offer if it is big enough.
The Trail Blazers on Tuesday extended qualifying offers to Meyers Leonard, Maurice Harkless and Allen Crabbe, ensuring the three players will be restricted free agents beginning July 1. By extending the qualifying offers, the Blazers reserve the right to match any offer the players receive on the free agent market, which begins July 1. A qualifying offer is 125% of the players’ previous salary.
The benefit in restricted agency is that Portland controls the process up to a point. Building relationships with agents is one element of a general manager’s job that goes unnoticed by the public. The trust that GM Neil Olshey has built with restricted free agents Meyers Leonard, Allen Crabbe and Maurice Harkless, along with their agents, will be critical.
In the video above, Blazers wing Allen Crabbe – a restricted free agent – talks about Portland's exciting season, his contributions and growth this year, and his upcoming free agency. "Obviously Portland has my rights," Crabbe said Thursday. "(I) definitely wouldn't mind coming back and playing with them next year, but just gonna have to wait and see. ... I think it'll be pretty exciting."

Any potential interest the Heat has in acquiring Irving, 30, will depend on what his price is on the trade market or in free agency. The belief is the Heat is not currently willing to give up its top assets to acquire Irving — a list that obviously includes Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler, and also Tyler Herro.
