Crabbe was traded to the Hawks on Thursday in exchange for Taurean Prince and a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Nets will also send two first-rounders -- including this year's pick -- to the Hawks in what ultimately amounts to a salary dump. Crabbe is due to make $18.5 million in the final year of his contract, and in clearing that off of their books, the Nets are in position to free up two max slots as free agency approaches. Per Wojnarowski, Brooklyn has its eye on landing Kyrie Irving, as well as a second superstar.
Crabbe (knee) opted into his player option Friday with the Nets for next season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal will land Crabbe a whopping $18.5 million for the 2019-20 season but it won't guarantee him playing time after shooting below 37 percent from the field over 43 games this season. He'll be spending the offseason rehabbing his right knee after undergoing arthroscopic surgery in April.
Crabbe underwent a right knee arthroscopy Thursday and will be out for the remainder of the season, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. An official timetable for a return to basketball action has not been established, but updates on Crabbe's status will be issued as appropriate. He'll finish the year having played just 43 games for the Nets, averaging 9.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 26.3 minutes.
Crabbe (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors. The Nets continue to evaluate Crabbe on a game-by-game basis but it's looking unlikely at this point that the swingman will be able to make it back before the end of the regular season. Crabbe will be sidelined for a ninth consecutive contest Wednesday, paving the way for DeMarre Carroll, Caris LeVert, Joe Harris and Jared Dudley to pick up some extra run on the wing.
Crabbe (knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Bucks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. Crabbe will miss his eighth straight game as he continues to deal with a sore right knee. There's currently no timetable for his return, so it's possible that he doesn't return this season. His next opportunity to play coming Wednesday against the Raptors, and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time.
