Warriors get Crawford for Douglas in multi-team deal

According to a Yahoo Sports report Wednesday morning, the Golden State Warriors have acquired Celtics guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks as part of a three-team deal that sends defensive specialist Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat who will ship center Joel Anthony along with future draft picks to Boston.

For several weeks, the Warriors had been looking for a veteran point guard to backup Stephen Curry, but have instead gained a natural scoring shooting guard who can run the offense in the 25-year-old Crawford.

Crawford (6-4, 195) averaged 13.7 points, 5.7 assists, and 3.1 rebounds in nearly 31 minutes per game this season will the Celtics, but is a career 40 percent shooter since entering the league in 2010. He previously played for the Hawks and Wizards and most recently replaced the injured Rajon Rondo as the Celtics primary facilitator.

He adds a much needed scoring punch to the Warriors bench and moves ahead of Kent Bazemore and Nemanja Nedovic on the depth chart.

Meanwhile the 24-year-old Brooks (6-5, 200) spent his first two seasons with the Nets and has seen limited action since being traded to Boston this summer. He has a career average of 15 points per 36 minutes.

Douglas was signed to a one-year, $1.6 million deal by the Warriors this off-season, but missed a month of playing time with stress reaction in his left leg that limited him to 24 games in which he averaged 2.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.5 assists per contest.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers is scheduled to speak to the media prior to tonight's home game against the Denver Nuggets.
