Allen Crabbe, G, California
The PAC-12 Player of the Year, the 21-year-old junior is one of the best shooters in the Draft. He made 34.8 percent of his 3-pointers last season on his way to a team-high 18.4 points per game. Crabbe, who went to Price High in L.A., is best in catch-and-shoot situations. He has long arms, has good size for an NBA shooting guard and competes defensively. He shot well at the combine and impressed scouts early in the Draft process in that regard. He sustained a foot injury on June 10 in a workout with the Brooklyn Nets, but it is not known whether or not the injury will impact his Draft stock. The questions about Crabbe, according to most scouts, center on his lack of elite athleticism and his toughness. According to a majority of mock drafts, Crabbe is slated to go late in the first round, including ESPN and Hoops Hype suggesting he could go to the Clippers.
“Crabbe has a sweet outside shooting stroke and solid athleticism,” Aran Smith of Hoops Hype wrote. “He also possesses good size for the 2-guard position. The biggest knock against him has been his toughness, level of intensity and consistency.”
