Boston Celtics trade two veterans to Warriors, acquire more picks from Miami

Boston Celtics trade rumors led to a three-team deal going down on Wednesday (Jan. 15). This Boston Celtics trade sends guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors and nets the team some future draft picks. According to a report from ESPN, the Celtics get a future second-round selection and a protected first-round selection that used to belong to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics will get that first-round pick if the 76ers make the playoffs in 2014, otherwise it reverts to two future second-round selections.

The third team involved in this deal is the Miami Heat, a team that used to have the two picks from the 76ers through a prior deal. Point guard Toney Douglas goes to Miami, with the team also sending veteran Joel Anthony back to the Celtics to complete the transaction. It's a complex deal to be sure, but it looks like the Warriors get two important scoring weapons that could come off the bench for the team. Crawford has averaged 13.7 points and 5.7 assists this season, making him an immediate upgrade for what the Warriors have coming off the bench.

This latest Boston Celtics trade again shows that the team is trying to collect draft picks and rebuild for the future. It's certainly possible that this could be foreshadowing for a possible Rajon Rondo deal in the coming weeks. Rondo is going to get some time in the D-League to get ready for the season, showing that the veteran point guard is very close to playing in NBA games again. This might just be a showcase, though, with the team possibly ready to completely empty the cupboard in preparation for the 2014 NBA Draft.
