Portland Trail Blazers

Allen Crabbe is headed for a big payday.

The Trail Blazers’ restricted free agent signed a four-year, $75 million offer sheet from the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday evening. The Trail Blazers have three days to match or let Crabbe go to the Nets.

Crabbe’s deal has bonuses built in that could boost the total to $83 million. He also has a player option on the fourth year, sources tell CSNNW.com. Last season, Crabbe made $947,00.

Neil Olshey, the Blazers' president of basketball operations, did not return a text message Thursday night asking whether he would match the offer.

Brooklyn has promised Crabbe – a 6-foot-6 wing -- a starting role, which is something the three-year pro desires. According to people close to Crabbe, he does not want to return to Portland if he comes off the bench. The Blazers on Thursday announced the signing of Evan Turner to a four-year, $70 million deal. Turner and Crabbe play the same position.

A former second round pick, Crabbe had a breakout season last year, averaging 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds while shooting 39.4 percent from three-point range. He was one of the Blazers’ better perimeter defenders and a key component of their second unit last season.

Note: Forward Cliff Alexander was waived by the Blazers on Thursday. If he is not claimed off waivers, the Blazers say he will be welcomed to remain with the Blazers' Summer League team.
