Trail Blazers, Nets trade Allen Crabbe for Andrew Nicholson, per report

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio reaches in to try and steal the ball from Portland Trail Blazers guard Allen Crabbe during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Portland Ore. Thursday

The Portland Trail Blazers have traded Allen Crabbe to the Brooklyn Nets in a move created to lower the team's financial burden. However, Crabbe did shoot 44.4 percent from 3-point range on almost four attempts per game in 2016-17, and perhaps Nets coach Kenny Atkinson can continue developing the 25-year-old for the next couple years.

Brooklyn now sports one of the best young shooting commodities in the league, virtually getting the guy they targeted a season ago and saving $18.5 million in the process for their patience. The Blazers are expected to consequently waive and stretch Nicholson's contract upon receiving him later today.

Just a year ago, the Brooklyn Nets chose to ruin Portland's summer and to eat up all its cap space by giving Allen Crabbe an offer sheet worth almost $75 million over four years. Crabbe is a fine role player, but stars win games in the National Basketball Association, and Crabbe might not even be a starter. While they'll save some money by dumping Crabbe and waiving Nicholson, they'll still be paying hefty luxury tax penalties for going so far over the $99 million salary cap. Depending on the order of operations, Portland could now set itself up to be a part of a larger deal that may involve other available players (cough, cough Carmelo Anthony). But he developed into a reliable reserve for Portland.

According to the Navy, the elephant could have been swept away by a rip current while crossing shallow lagoons in that area. The rescue operation that lasted for five hours was carried out by Navy personnel of the Eastern Naval Command. .

The Nets, ironically, were the team that forced Portland to overpay Crabbe last offseason. He'll join a backcourt of Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell, with Caris LeVert in the mix, too, to go along with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and DeMarre Carroll at the forward spots.

Brooklyn sent power forward Andrew Nicholson to Portland in the deal.

The NBA insider reported on Twitter that Crabbe was traded to the Nets in exchange for Andrew Nicholson. He averaged 10.7 points in 28.5 minutes per game last season for the Blazers.
