PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Meyers Leonard is staying in Portland and it appears Allen Crabbe is, too.

Leonard signed a contract to remain with the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the forward/center said he was excited to stay in Portland for four more years.

''The future is going to be bright with this team,'' Leonard said in a statement.

And Crabbe is set to be a part of it.

The Trail Blazers guard went to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to proclaim: ''RIP CITY!''

The tweet looked to confirm reports that the Blazers had matched an offer by the Brooklyn Nets for the restricted free agent. The four-year, $75 million offer and Portland's match were first reported by Yahoo Sports.

Crabbe averaged 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in 81 games last season, his third with the team. The 6-foot-6 Los Angeles native was acquired in a 2013 draft day trade with Cleveland, which took him with the 31st overall pick out of California.
