  • Nets Trade Alan Crabbe To Hawks For Taurean Prince

    Nets trade Crabbe to Hawks for Prince

    The Brooklyn Nets are trading guard Allen Crabbe and his $18.5 million contract to the Atlanta Hawks, clearing the salary-cap space to pursue two maximum free-agent contracts this summer, league sources told ESPN.

    The Nets are sending Crabbe, the No. 17 pick in the 2019 NBA draft and a 2020 lottery-protected first-round pick to the Hawks for forward Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round pick, league sources said. The deal can't be finalized until July 6.

    If the Nets' 2020 first-round pick falls in the protected range (picks No. 1 through 14) in 2020, Atlanta will get the Nets' lottery-protected first-round pick in 2021, sources told ESPN's Zach Lowe. The same will also happen in 2022 if the pick is still lottery protected in 2021, though after that, it will convert to two second-round picks.

    Crabbe is a six-year NBA veteran who averaged 9.6 points and 3.4 rebounds in just 43 games during an injury-plagued 2018-19 season. He was a former Pac-12 Player of the Year at California.

    Prince, a first-round pick in 2016, averaged 13.5 points last season.
