Former Cal star Allen Crabbe apparently will get what he sought from Thursday night’s NBA draft.

“He’ll be a first-rounder,” Cal coach Mike Montgomery said.

What happens beyond that,nobody knows, including Crabbe.

“It’s been my dream my entire life to play in the NBA. I’m just worried about getting myself there,” said Crabbe, who will attend the draft at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. “It’s not like college — you can’t choose a team you want to go to.”

    After 6 picks, I wouldn’t be surprised if Crabbe goes in the top ten the ways this one’s going.
