PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - It appears that Allen Crabbe is staying in Portland.
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.
Restricted free agent center Meyers Leonard also agreed to a reported four-year, $41 million deal to remain in Portland, also posting confirmation of a deal on Twitter.
