The Portland Trail Blazers have assigned rookie guard Allen Crabbe to the NBA Development League's Idaho Stampede, it was announced today by General Manager Neil Olshey.

Crabbe, 21, is averaging 2.0 points, 0.2 rebounds, 0.3 assists and 4.9 minutes in 12 games for the Trail Blazers this season. Acquired by the Portland in a draft day trade with Cleveland, Crabbe was the 31st overall selection in the 2013 NBA Draft out of California.

Crabbe's assignment to Idaho is the second of the season for the Trail Blazers, who assigned CJ McCollum to the Stampede from Jan. 1-5.

Idaho plays host to Santa Cruz on Wednesday, March 12, at 6:30 p.m. (Pacific).

Update (Sunday): Crabbe was recalled to the Blazers on Sunday. In Idaho, he posted averages of 16.7 points (on 42.6 percent shooting) and 5.3 rebounds in three games, highlighted by a 23-point night against the Reno Bighorns on Friday.

The D-League put together this reel of Crabbe's game on Friday.

Portland is set to host the Golden State Warriors at the Moda Center on Sunday and will be without both LaMarcus Aldridge (back) and Mo Williams (hip).

Original Post:

Last month, it was announced that the Blazers and the Stampede planned to part ways after the 2013-14 season. Stampede Managing Investor Bill Ilett said at the time that the two teams planned to continue to work together for the balance of this season, even though the Blazers have barely used the affiliate this year.

Crabbe last took the court for six minutes in a blowout victory over the Atlanta Hawks on March 5. He was recently moved to the inactive list once Blazers forward Thomas Robinson returned from a knee injury. This will be his first D-League assignment.

The Blazers assigned rookie guard CJ McCollum to the D-League for two games back in January.

The Stampede are currently 21-18 and just outside the D-League's playoff picture.
