Celtics Trade Jordan Crawford to Warriors
(NEW YORK) -- The Boston Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors as part of a three-team deal on Wednesday.
Golden State will send reserve guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat as part of the trade, while the Celtics will receive center Joel Anthony and two draft picks from the defending champs.
Crawford was having a career season for the Celtics, averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 assists in 39 games. He became expendable with the expected return of All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo, who has yet to play this year while working his way back from a torn ACL.
Douglas was averaging 3.7 points in 24 games with the Warriors.
The deal saves the Heat $6.4 million in luxury taxes this season by taking Anthony off their books. The Heat are sending the Celtics a 76ers first-round pick that is lottery protected for the next two years, that will turn into two second-round picks if not conveyed. The second pick is their own 2016 second-rounder.
