Boston Celtics send Jordan Crawford to Warriors in three-team deal

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge continues to wheel and deal for the future. As Boston.com reports on Jan. 15, the Celtics have sent guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors as part of a three-team deal.

As part of the deal, the Warriors will sent point guard Toney Douglas to the NBA champion Miami Heat while the Celtics will receive veteran center Joel Anthony from the Heat. But the more enticing part of the deal is the projected future first-round pick and future second-round pick the Celtics will receive.

The trade comes just weeks after the Celtics traded Courtney Lee to the Memphis Grizzlies which hints on a return of star guard Rajon Rondo, who has already said that he is close to returning. The trade also means Ainge will be focused on re-signing Avery Bradley in the off-season.

The Celtics are in an obvious rebuilding mode, especially with the team’s current slump. Parting ways with Crawford clears up cap space and also playing time for a guard rotation that will feature Rondo, Bradley, the newly acquired Jerryd Bayless and rookie Phil Pressey.

Jordan Crawford averaged 13.7 point and 5.7 assists this year for the Boston Celtics and Brooks saw limited action with the Celtics but shows promise when he gets playing time.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the projected first-round pick becomes a second-round pick if the Philadelphia 76ers don’t make the playoffs.
