Warriors acquire Crawford as part of 3-team swap
Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors have acquired guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics Wednesday as part of a three-team trade that also involved the Miami Heat.
Golden State sent guard Toney Douglas to the Heat, who shipped center Joel Anthony to the Celtics.
The Celtics will also receive a protected future first-round pick and Miami's 2016 second-round pick in the deal, as well as cash considerations. The first-round pick is owned by the Philadelphia 76ers, but that will become two second-round selections if Philly misses the playoffs this season or next, according to Yahoo! Sports.
The Heat will save $11.5 million in salary and luxury tax by unloading Anthony's contract.
The 25-year-old Crawford, who had a career resurgence in Boston this season playing point guard, is averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 assists per game.
Crawford won Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors in early December when he averaged 23.3 points and 6.7 assists, but his field goal percentage has declined and his turnovers have increased since then.
In 10 games played this year, Brooks is averaging 3.1 points per tilt.
Golden State has been looking for depth at guard behind Stephen Curry, while Boston cleared room on the roster for point guard Rajon Rondo, who is expected back Friday.
Douglas is averaging 3.7 points per game, while the defensive-oriented Anthony has seen his minutes dwindle to 3.1 per contest this season with the Heat.
