Crabbe, a restricted free agent, signed a four-year, $75MM offer from the Nets on Thursday.

Crabbe is coming off his best NBA season, averaging 10.3 points in 81 games.
- Festus Ezeli‘s deal with the Blazers contained less money than expected because of concerns about his knees, tweets Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.
