Portland Trail Blazers restricted free agent guard Allen Crabbe has been rumored to be a target for several teams, but it appears that one of his would-be suitors is leaning against making an offer.
Tom Moore, 76ers beat writer for the Bucks County Courier Times, reports that the Sixers are not offering Crabbe a 4-year deal worth $50 million.
Moore, citing a source, also reiterated the widely reported belief that the Blazers will match any offer that comes Crabbe's way.
#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 (@tmoore76ers) July 2, 2016
Crabbe, 24, is coming off a career-year with the Blazers. At 39.3 percent from deep, he was the Blazers' second-most efficient 3-point shooter behind CJ McCollum (41.7 percent). He also flexed his ability to score in the midrange, shooting a blistering 51.4 percent from 10-to-16 feet, according to Basketball-Reference.
Crabbe averaged 10.3 points per game in a sixth man role.
