KOIN 6 News Staff - PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) --- It's been a busy day for the Portland Trail Blazers. Reports indicate they signed Meyers Leonard to a 4-year deal and matched Allen Crabbe's offer from the Brooklyn Nets. And the Blazers Dancers held their auditions.

Meyers Leonard

Meyers Leonard signed a 4-year deal with the Blazers to stay with Portland, multiple sources said.

Leonard signed the $41 million deal, according to The Vertical and Comcast Sports Net.

The 24-year-old Leonard averaged 8.4 points and 5.1 rebounds during the 2015-16 NBA season. He was sidelined by a shoulder injury and consequent surgery.

He'll return to the team that recently added free agents Evan Turner and Festus Ezeli and got Shabazz Napier in a cash deal from Orlando.

Allen Crabbe

The Blazers matched Allen Crabbe's 4-year, $75 million offer sheet with Brooklyn, Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted. That was followed by a Crabbe tweet:

In a different area of the team, auditions for the Blazers Dancers were held Sunday.
