Allen Crabbe (NBA 2K19 Player Rating 76)
Nets general manager Sean Marks was chasing Crabbe for the past two seasons prior to his signing. The Nets initially signed Crabbe to a four-year, $75 million offer sheet in 2016, but the Portland Trail Blazers matched the offer in order to bring back the sharpshooter.
One season later, Portland traded Crabbe to Brooklyn in order to free up cap space.

Crabbe is currently the the most expensive player on the Brooklyn Nets. He will be making $18.5 million this season, $3.1 million more than DeMarre Carroll.
Since his arrival to Brooklyn, Crabbe has not played up to his price tag. He struggled shooting the ball at a consistent level last season. To go along with his shooting struggles, Crabbe does not stretch his game often past the arc.
His 3-point shooting should be more consistent considering he took 7.1 attempts from behind the arc last season. He shot 37.8 percent from 3 last season, which is not bad, but considering the amount of attempts, he should strengthen his shot.
His mid-range game is not as active. He only averages 3.9 2-point field goal attempts per game, but is consistent. He shoots 46.1 percent from inside the arc.
On the defensive end, he is a good defender. He does a good job staying on his man and has is aware of his surroundings. Now, he is not one of Brooklyn’s best defensive guards and in fact is arguably on the lower end of the stick when it comes to defense.
The 2017-18 season was not a bad season for Crabbe. He had the best season of his career in terms of total production. While in Portland, Crabbe was a sixth man. In Brooklyn, he started a total of 68 games at the shooting guard position.
In his first season with Brooklyn, Crabbe averaged 29.3 minutes, 13.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists.
Based on his play last season and other 76-rated shooting guards, his rating is an accurate rating. Many might think if LeVert is a 76, shouldn’t Crabbe be a 77? The argument can be made.
Crabbe could have his rating go up during the 2018-19 season, but he will have to expand his play on the offensive end of the floor rather than being strictly a spot-up shooter.
