The Trail Blazers have matched the four-year, $75 million offer sheet that restricted free agent guard Allen Crabbe signed with the Brooklyn Nets, the team announced on Sunday. The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the deal.
Crabbe, 24, signed the contract on Thursday, giving Portland until 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday to match.
The shooting guard was selected by the Trail Blazers in the second round of the 2013 draft and played his first three seasons in Portland. Last season, he averaged 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in a career-high 26 minutes per game. He shot 36.4 percent from three during the regular season and 42.9 percent from deep in 11 postseason games.
Portland also agreed to re-sign center Meyers Leonard on a four-year, $41 million deal earlier in the day.
