The Golden State Warriors have acquired Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks from the Boston Celtics in a three team trade.

The Miami Heat will acquire guard Toney Douglas and part of the Warriors’ trade exception.

The Celtics will acquire center Joel Anthony and a protected first round draft pick (via Philadelphia 76rs)  from the Heat, also obtain a 2nd round draft pick.

With Rajon Rondo nearing return, the Celtics wanted to get the best offer they could for Crawford.

Crawford has enjoyed his best season as a pro, as he’s putting up 13.7 points and 5.7 assists per game.

The Warriors have looked for guard depth behind Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

Douglas was suppose to fill in the role that Jarrett Jack left behind, but he has not panned out. Douglas has averaged just 11 minutes for the Warriors.

Brooks has only played in 10 games this season. He’s averaged 3.1 points in 7.3 minutes.

Anthony has been the odd big man out in the Miami rotation. He’s averaged just 3.1 minutes per game.
