According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Golden State Warriors have thrown their hat into the trade market:
As part of a three-team deal, the Boston Celtics have traded guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Golden State Warriors, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Warriors will send guard Toney Douglas to the Miami Heat, and Miami sends center Joel Anthony and a future first-round pick and second-round pick to the Celtics, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Golden State had been looking for a backup point guard and Jordan Crawford has become more of a playmaker under Brad Stevens this season as opposed to the shoot-first 2-guard he was in previous campaigns. Once upon a time, Crawford had the offensive discipline of the immortal J.R. Smith, which is saying something.
The acquisition of MarShon Brooks is an intriguing one given that not even two seasons ago he was viewed as a prospect with good upside. His minutes and scoring have decreased in back-to-back seasons, a trend that is likely to continue under Mark Jackson because of the perimeter players he has at his disposal.
More reactions to come on the trade later in the day.
