It really depends on the dog.

If the dog you are getting is already crate trained, having a crate may make the transition to his new home a lot easier and less stressful for him. He may feel more comfortable and more safe in the crate while you are asleep and when you are not home.

If he has grown up in a kennel, there is also a chance that he may not be able to be trusted loose in the house when he is not supervised, so that would be something else to consider.

If he has not been crate trained, a crate might add to his stress and make him feel confined or trapped.
