Allen Crabbe is among the players linked to the Knicks

Allen Crabbe is represented by Aaron Mintz at the CAA. Crabbe is best known for his huge contract after Trailblazers paired the 4-year / $ 75 million Nets offer sheet in the summer of 2016. It is fair to say now that Crabbe could never meet the expectations of that contraction.

During the first two years of the deal, Crabbe distinguished himself as a shooting guard capable of making many three with a high percentage. This stopped midway through the 2018-19 season when he underwent surgery on his right knee.

Crabbe played 37 games during the 2019-20 shortened campaign with Atlanta Hawks and Timberwolves before Minnesota released him. The California native hasn’t fully recovered from knee surgery last season, but there is hope that rest can be his best medicine.

Crabbe’s calling card is his three-point proficiency, more than the other areas of his game. It is worth noting that Kenny Atkinson, now in the running to become the Knicks’ next head coach, helped Crabbe improve in defense while the two were in Brooklyn.

If the Knicks acquired Crabbe, they would hope to unleash the player we have seen since 2016-19 and provide the floor spacing that Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock have been unable to provide on a consistent basis.
