Portland Trail Blazers restricted free-agent guard Allen Crabbe has signed a four-year, $75 million offer sheet with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told The Vertical. The contract includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker that could escalate the deal to $83 million, sources said.
Sam Amick: Allen Crabbe agrees with Brooklyn on offer sheet, $75 mil and up to $83 mil with incentives. Skepticism that Portland matches. Woj first
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Portland RFA Allen Crabbe has signed a four-year, $75M offer sheet with the Brooklyn Nets. Bonuses could reach $83M.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Portland has three days to match the sheet on Crabbe, which includes player option for fourth year and trade kicker, sources said.
David Aldridge: Portland believes its 2-year, $15M deal 4 Festus Ezeli shouldn’t impact its ability to keep RFAs Meyers Leonard, Allen Crabbe, Moe Harkless. (@The Vertical 1st)
Mike Mazzeo: Nothing new on Allen Crabbe as #Nets fans wait on Tyler Johnson. Restricted free agent intrigue.
And while Yahoo reported the Blazers are likely to match any offer sheet for Crabbe — and a league source told The Post that Brooklyn hadn’t yet agreed to any deal as of Tuesday morning — the Nets are more hopeful of landing Johnson. And those hopes were buoyed Tuesday night.
Jason Quick: As reported by @Sam Amick, the Allen Crabbe to Brooklyn for 4 years and $70 million "is not true" according to his agent, Aaron Mintz
David 'Dubi' Pick: Source: Brooklyn, Allen Crabbe agree 4-year, $70 million deal. Portland will not match.
Sam Amick: The reported Allen Crabbe offer sheet agreement with Brooklyn is being refuted. He has meetings coming on the 5th, I'm told. That doesn't mean Allen Crabbe might not ultimately head to Brooklyn on that kind of number, but he's clearly still listening.
Marc J. Spears: Blazers free agent guard Allen Crabbe has free agent meeting set up on Tuesday, a source told @TheUndefeated.
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.
Tom Moore: Report out they were going to sign him to 4-year, $50 million offer sheet. twitter.com/MUT168/status/…
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.
