Allen Crabbe has played in 43 games this season for the Nets, who are 36-34 on the season — good for sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Crabbe is averaging 9.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game for Brooklyn. He’s shooting 36.7 percent from the field, 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free-throw line.
The Nets are trying to make the playoffs this season for the first time since 2015. The team will need Crabbe for the stretch run of the season, as he’s one of the best 3-point shooters on the squad.
Crabbe is making $18,500,000 this season and has a player option worth the same amount for next year.
